They offer school field trips and introduce students to the importance of agriculture in our world. They make this learning experience fun for the children, parents and teachers. The outdoor classroom features farm animals, wagon rides, pig races, a playground, honey bee house and U-pick strawberries.
"Our main crop is fresh shelled butterbeans and peas," says Sheila, "We begin to harvest early June and pick through October. We grow a variety of peas including pink eyes, zippers, creams, white acres, lady fingers, crowders and black eyes. The beans and peas are then packed in 8 pound bags."
In October the farm features a corn mze, pumpkin patch and sunflower field. The fall activities are all open to the public on Saturdays and open for school field trips during the week in the spring and fall.
