They will also receive one donut and one kid’s cup of apple cider. The cost is $3.00 per adult and that includes the wagon ride, a donut and cider and a pumpkin or an apple. Please prepay this event via paypal by Tuesday, September 20th to confirm your spot ( Please comment with how many children over age 2 you will have and how many adults.

Dress accordingly for the outdoor farm field trip including closed-toe shoes and warm clothes/jacket. There is a picnic area outside the market if you would like to bring a lunch from home and eat prior to the field trip. There will be a media release from the farm that will need to be signed at the field trip. It is your responsibility to supervise your students/children so that everyone can have a productive and enjoyable visit to the farm.
