Fall Tours 2012
What is a hinney? Well , come find out. Have you ever seen cotton that isn’t so white and fluffy ? How about cotton with color? Ever wondered what a turkey from a hundred years ago may have looked liked? Besides unusual farm animals and plants, you will have an opportunity to learn about many of the classic farm animals and plants.
We are offering tours with different emphasis depending on age or interest. This means we will spend more time where we think your class can get more out of the tour. If you are interested in a particular aspect let us know ahead when you book your tour and we can emphasize that for your tour.

In addition to tasting apple cider, each child will take home a mini-jack pumpkin (in case we run out we may substitute a gourd or Indian corn) and an INDIGO FARMS 16 page coloring book designed to reinforce the learning experience. It has a $2.00 coupon inside.
Each class will receive a Teacher’s guide and a Teacher’s copy of the coloring book. You can use this to discuss the trip in the classroom. Each class gets a pumpkin for their classroom. (Homeschool groups & some very small groups may be considered as one class.
The tour takes about 1-1.5 hours. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO BE ON TIME! We are trying to avoid having too many people on the farm at the same time. When you are late we have to take less time on your tour.
