The Kids on the Farm Program facilitates school field trips to local farms for students in K-12. Expect a learning experience engaging all five senses where your students can interact with livestock and their many products, work with soil and compost, learn how plants grow and how they are used, and appreciate “wild nature” as well as the “managed natural system” that is a farm. No matter which farm you choose, your students will learn about where food comes from and achieve specific curriculum connections.
"Kids on the Farm program is so straight-forward, easy and well organized. The website is easy to navigate, the transportation subsidy is an added bonus and the curricular connections are so relevant. I am so very happy with this program and will continue to visit farms in the fall and spring in the next school year." - S. Johnson, Grade 4 teacher (2021 tour evaluation)
"Amoree and Bernard were fantastic! Nothing but positive things to say about our day with them. This is my first year with the Kids on the Farm program - it has been fantastic. Visiting two farms gave us the opportunity to compare the two farms, learning about different types of farms and ways they are run. The students learned a lot through both farm visits." - J. Bruemmer, Grade 6/7 teacher (2021 tour evaluation)
“The Kids On The Farm Program is the best! This program supports teachers 100%. The booking procedure is simple and takes literally two minutes to complete… Can a teacher ask for more? These farm visits increase student interest about farm life and help students understand the importance of animals. Experience helps students see how we are all part of a beautiful and delicate cycle. We all need each other! Kids on the farm must always exist because it gives us access to farmers we might otherwise never come to know.” L. Gauthier, kindergarten teacher (2021 tour evaluation)
