Field Trips at the Farm

Admission: reserved students $5/ teachers free (1 per class of 20) / everyone else $7 (2yrs- adult)

Elgin CHRISTmas Tree Farm has been hosting students on field trips for over 25 years. Our field trips are designed for Pre-K to 5th grade.  Field trips include an educational talk on the plant cycle and farming according to the season.

The field trips are led by many retired teachers (with over 75 years of teaching experience). While educating entertaining and keeping the students physically active our leaders try to make our program as organized and teacher friendly as possible. In October, students will decorate a mini pumpkin to take home.  In December, students will decorate a pinecone ornament.  During Spring, students decorate a container, plant seeds in it and take it home to water and watch it grow.

Students will also enjoy many fun activities including a long scenic hayride, animals, mazes, picnic areas, playground, rubber duck races, old fashioned outdoor games, and shopping in our Barn Store.

Our field trips start at 10am and can last up to 3-4 hours. We have picnic areas for students to eat their lunch.
