The fall tour season is here! The tours begins in October. This year’s tour has a strong emphasis on pumpkins. We have planted more than in year’s past. The sugar cane looks good at this point also. Kids will be able to learn about food for people and food for animals. As teachers you have the opportunity to prepare your class to learn some history, nutrition, learn about the food cycle and the environment. Please see Tours under the experience section at the top of the home page.
If you have some skill or exhibit that you believe would be fitting for Farm heritage day let us know. If it fits into the goals and objectives of the event we would be glad to have your participation.

It's watermelon time at the farm! This crop has had many positive comments. In fact there have been some who have said that the "Imagination" sugar baby is the best watermelon they have ever eaten! This week we are having a special on watermelons. Watermelons may be priced such that you would want to buy 2 or 3 at a time.
