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:

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.
