The Fall Harvest Educational Guided Tour takes approximately an hour and a half from start to finish. Guided tours are perfect for larger groups or school groups who need to stick to a tight schedule. (Reservations are required. See below.) Our Guided tours make learning so much fun! In our ongoing effort to keep our Educational Guided Tours affordable for everyone, we will allow 1 adult entry (free of charge) for every 20 children paying for entry to our tour. Come and join us for a fun day of learning on the farm!
- Pioneer Home - Youíll be able to walk through an authentically furnished pioneer home and listen to our own Pioneer Woman explain how the first settlers survived in the West. You will get to hear all about how the early settlers came to the west, learned to grow crops and created tools to survive on the harsh frontier.
- Corn Milling: Come and learn about how important corn crops were to the early pioneer settlers and how they are used today. You will get to see a demonstration about milling corn and the many tools that have been used over the years for this purpose. Learn all about how the pioneers developed methods to store valuable corn to last them over the hard winters. Hear about how the settlers used corn as currency to barter for other important frontier supplies. Everyone will be interested in learning about the many stages of the cornís development from the field to your dinner table!
- Country Fair Theater - Sit and relax while you enjoy our award winning singer/songwriter and elementary educator Eric Ode or Cyndi Soup. Join us for a children's musical celebration live in our very own Country Fair Theater.
- Steam Train: Did you know that the steam trains played a very large role in the development of modern society. Many early settlers worked their way out west laying tracks and paving the way to transport machinery and people, forever changing the face of industry in America. Take a ride on our authentic steam train and transport yourself back to the days of the pioneers, winding through the trees and along the river. Imagine yourself discovering new land that you had never seen before!
- 4-H Barnyard: Animals played a key role in the lives of farmers and pioneers over the years. They have long been used as a very important part of agriculture. Come and visit our animal barnyard and listen to Bonnie tell you all about the many varieties of animals and what role they play in farm life. You will be able to get up close and see how all of your favorite farm animals live. Hear all about our friendly sheep, alpacas, chickens, rabbits, pigs, goats, donkeys and geese. You may want to wear your farmerís overalls because you will practically be an expert by the time you leave!
(Note: Hand washing stations are provided outside of the animal petting areas -- please use them to do your part to protect yourself and your children from potential exposure to e. coli which is a naturally occurring bacteria and is always potentially present with live animals).
- Hay Jump and Climbing Wall: Hay and straw are a very important part of the farm! It is used for feeding the animals and keeping them comfortable and warm through the long winter. You will get to experience what hay storage would look like on the farm, but donít worry, we wonít put you to work; our hay storage is for fun and play! You will get to enjoy our 1,000 bale hay maze and hay jump. Test your climbing skills on our horizontal climbing wall in the safety of the soft, dry hay!
