group farm tours at Alstede farms
Let us teach you about farming in the most fun way! We open our doors to groups of all ages and sizes because we understand the importance of hands-on education. We personalize each farm tour and field trip, depending on the group’s interests. You will navigate our farm by taking hayrides out to the beautiful fields and orchards, greenhouses, school classroom, our friendly animals and last but not least – having a great outdoor day at our family owned farm.
We offer personalized educational tours Monday through Friday (except holidays) for groups of 20 or more people. Our tours are suitable for all ages – everyone will learn something new and walk away with a small treasure to take home. A favorite field trip for students!
Farm Tours Include:
tractor drawn hay wagon ride
Take in the scenery in a peaceful and fun hay wagon ride through our fields and orchards. The beauty of our farm lays in the green scenery, delicious smells and lush green lawns as you travel to your destination. The hay ride is a great way to take it all in.
Classroom lesson and garden
Visit our rustic farm classroom and learn about fruits and veggies, seasonability and eating what is good for you. See how plants grow in our educational garden and learn about the life cycle of a plant.
Lunch area and beverage
We provide a lunch area and a beverage for your group to enjoy after the tour - just bring your own lunch, pre-order boxed lunches or visit our Hen House to a delicious tasty snack.
Giant hay pyramid
We have a huge hay pyramid that children love to climb on. This is a great group photo opportunity! Children are so excited when they arrive at the farm after the bus ride so this is a great activity that help them get the wiggles out!
Kids love exploring mazes! Our evergreen maze gets taller every year.
Stop by the bunny run
Our bunnies are located at the bottom of the goat walk, stop by and say hello.
Visit our goat walk
Goats are naturally curious animals and they love to climb our goat walk. Stop by and visit them after lunch. They love new friends, carrots and lettuce and soft pets on their heads.
For your convenience, we offer boxed lunches as an additional option for all group tours. Inquire to learn more.
Visit our ice cream window
Our Alstede fresh ice cream is homemade using only the finest ingredients, real cream and our homegrown fruits. Our delicious flavors are available in quarts, pints, cones or cups and they are a great way to round out any field trip.
