Designed for Pre-school Children & Parents

Full Hay Wagon Ride - Accommodates a maximum of 45 total participants (teachers, chaperones, and students) and the 2016 cost is $350.

Half Hay Wagon Ride - Accommodates up to 23 total participants and the 2016 cost is $175.

The Pumpkin Experience Tour is a popular choice for young children ages 4 to 5. This tour provides youngsters and their parents the opportunity to enjoy a farming experience together. Parents and children have the opportunity to observe a working farm while enjoying a classic New England autumn activity.

Parents and children will enjoy a hay wagon ride out to a private pumpkin field. Both parents and children then enjoy the excitement of each selecting their own pumpkin. 

After harvest, the children and parents return to the Harvest Yard for a self-guided tour to enjoy fall displays. At the end of the visit, each child will receive a fresh apple and educational coloring book to take home. Each classroom (based on 20) will receive a complimentary classroom pumpkin.

Pumpkin Experience Tour Dates

Many program times are offered on each day:

9:30; 10:30; 11:00 am; and 12:00, 1:00 or 1:30 pm.

Chaperone Policy for Pumpkin Experience Tour Programs
For our Pumpkin Experience Tour, we welcome as many adult chaperones per child as is desired by the preschool program. We do have a maximum capacity of our hayride however, so all adult chaperones must be accounted for in a school's pre-registration. Also, please note we cannot accommodate younger siblings and infants on the tour.

School Tour Policies and Procedures
Please review our policies and procedures regarding chaperones, cancelations, payments and other procedures.

 

Be good to the land and the land will be good to you.
