Important Field Trip Information:

Field trips are by advance reservation only.

We recommend contacting us at least two months in advance.

No bus or school groups without a reservation in advance.

Field trips are on weekdays only.

We do not offer field trips on Saturdays, Sundays, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Federal holidays, Montgomery County PS holidays, Fairfax County PS holidays.

The cost is $8 per person regardless of age. For example, a group of 80 children, 15 parents, and 5 teachers is 100 people and would be charged $800. Of course, all 100 people would be allowed to pick.

The minimum group size is 20. Groups under 20 people will still be charged for 20 people.

You will be charged by how many people we count on the day of the field trip. So if you made a reservation for 100 people but 5 couldn't make it, don't worry, we will only charge you for 95 people. However, if you make a reservation for 100 people and you bring 105 people, you will be charged for 105.

You cannot bring extra people along for a free hayride.

Teachers, please collect all money from parents in advance. (They pay you, you pay us.)

Payment will be made in the farm market, right after the field trip, before you leave the farm.

We suggest bringing markers to write names on apple bags and pumpkins.

If taking a school bus, please avoid Montevideo Road, which is a common way to get from River Road to Sugarland Road (where the farm is).  Montevideo Road has a small single lane bridge that cannot accommodate school buses.
