School Tours

We love having local schools and homeschool groups visit our farm!  Our tours are designed to educate preschool and elementary school children about farming in a hands-on atmosphere.  

Our tours will cover the competency goals of the NC Standard Course of Study for Science, Math, and Healthful Living.

We are also very flexible at Wise Acres and can cater your tour around the interests of your group (Bees, Organics, Soil, etc.).

 If interested in reserving a tour please fill out this form and we will contact you shortly:

The cost is:
 
$10.00 per student for 25 – 49 students, including one free adult per 10 children
$9.00   per student for 50 or more students, including one free adult per 10 children
Minimum tour group size is 25 paying visitors.  We value groups of all sizes so if you are a small group please do visit during normal operating hours – we would be delighted to have you.  If we are not busy feel free to ask us for an impromptu lesson.  We love educating kids so we will be happy to talk with you if we are staffed adequately.  However, we will only reserve a pre-scheduled tour time for 25 or more.  Thanks for understanding.
Your tour includes:
  • Customized educational talks
  • One u-pick container of organic strawberries
  • Group hayride
  • A small slushie from our concession barn
  • Access to playgrounds, animals and picnic patch

All are welcome on the farm!  There is no charge for parents and siblings to attend field trips.  Please keep in mind however that only official school chaperones will be included with the tour.  If visiting parents or siblings of paying students want to ride on the hay wagon, pick strawberries or enjoy a slushie they must purchase a tour package or individual items/tickets in the barn.  Thank you for explaining this to your family members before they arrive.  It can be sad when an excited younger sibling is passed over at ride or slushie time.
