Hickory Nut Gap will host school field trips throughout the fall season. Tuesday through Friday there are two time slots; 9-10:30 or 10:30-12, for classes to come out and learn about the farm. We can accommodate groups of any age group or size. The cost is only $5 per student and chaperone and no cost for teachers. Call 628-1027 or email Ann Araps at [email protected] to set up a time and date for a class to come out.
Curriculum for these trips may vary based on the size and grade level involved. The kids will have an opportunity to learn about a variety of farm animals and plants; from calves and baby chicks, to apples and blueberries. Students will also get to sample some of the apple varieties that we have available. After the farmer lead portion of the field trip, classes will have access to one of our picnic areas for lunch and then are welcome to stay and enjoy the other activities on the farm like the corn maze and the nature trail.
