All requests for scheduling are to be emailed for availability. We provide a personal guided tour through our farm to experience life living on a working farm. All children are always free to ask questions, we love engaging inquisitive minds and are honored our farm was selected for their experience.

  • A guided tour
  • A hayride for the group
  • Food to feed the animals
  • Duck races at the pitcher pump
  • An encounter with our lovable farm animals
  • A mini pumpkin for each paying child

Some activities are seasonal; therefore, some may only be available during certain times and the need for substitution may present itself. To be courteous of other groups scheduled on the same day, please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your timeslot. This will allow us appropriate time for the children to do all of the activities we have planned. Please remit payment in full at our farmer’s market before your scheduled tour time. If paying in cash, please make sure it is together and safely in an envelope. If paying with a school check, please make it payable to Fruitville Grove.
