With 20 years of farm field trip experience and a capacity for whole grades to come all at once, Great Country Farms is the place to meet Virginia Standards of Learning (SOL) requirements and enjoy every minute of fun on the farm (download full list of SOL fulfilments here).
On our real working farm, children have the opportunity to see how produce grows, mine for precious stones or discover how honeybees pollinate in our demo garden. In addition, all students get to meet and feed our friendly farm animals and enjoy a hayride tour of the farm. Our field trips are seasonally based with a focus on the bounty of the season such as strawberries in the spring and pumpkins in the fall. Our summer field trips feature summer fruits or vegetables such as peaches and blackberries. You can choose from five of our education tours that we offer here at the farm or even combine two together! Click on the tour below to find out more!
