Designed for Pre-school Children & Parents
Full Hay Wagon Ride - Accommodates a maximum of 45 total participants (teachers, chaperones, and students). 2018 cost is $350.
The Pumpkin Experience Tour is a popular choice for young children ages 3 to 5. This tour provides youngsters and their parents 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 picking pumpkins, children and parents return to the Harvest Yard, where they have the opportunity to enjoy a self-guided tour of our fall produce 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 pre-selected complimentary classroom pumpkin.
*Please note* - Half Hay Wagon Rides will only be offered at the 12:30 pm time slot for Pumpkin Experience Tours. For small groups of 20 or less total participants looking to visit the farm during the morning hours, please consider our Option for Small Groups and Home School Students.

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 45 on our hayrides, so all adult chaperones must be accounted for in a school's pre-registration. Also, please note we cannot accommodate unaccounted for younger siblings and infants on the tour.
