School Tours

We will not be running school tours for the 2020 fall season. We apologize for any inconvenience or disappointment this causes. Thank you for your understanding.

Maple Syrup Tours

Bring your class to the farm and learn all about maple syrup production and much, much more. Our 2 hour program includes a wagon ride to the sugar bush, explanations of modern and early syrup making, a tour of the sugar shanty and evaporator, learning how to tap a tree, a chance to make maple taffy, learning about the different tools used in making maple syrup, and of course, experience the taste of pure maple syrup on some fresh, hot pancakes.

This program helps to develop the following learning skills:

  • Initiative
  • Collaboration
  • Self-Regulation

Tours are available on weekdays from February 24th to April 3rd, 2020. Dress for the weather we will be outside!

Fall Tours

Not available for Fall 2020

Get your students out of the classroom and into a fresh educational environment. We are gearing up for our 16th season of hosting school groups at our farm. Solve the mystery of Farmer James’ disappearance as you find the stations hidden around the 2019 corn maze. Students of all ages will benefit from the experience. We also host school tours in the spring time at the maple sugar bush.

Half Day Programs (approx. 2 hours)

Option A: From dirt to butter. Students will think like a pioneer farmer, circa 1860 for the day. Students will see an old plow and learn what a pioneer would have to do in order to plow, clear land, or plant crops. Farmer James will talk about his great great grandfather who farmed and some of the equipment he might have used. Many of the pieces of equipment are on display for students to see and use in our heritage barn. Students get to finish off the day by whipping cream to make butter. This program also includes time in the corn maze OR a wagon ride to our neighbour’s apple orchard and apple picking.
This program also helps to develop the following learning skills:

How does our educational corn maze program meet the Ontario Curriculum expectations?

Option B:  Meet Mr. Bear and Mr. Hare, the two lovable characters in the story “Tops and Bottoms” as told by Farmer James.  Mr. Bear learns from the wily Mr. Hare about which vegetables grow above the ground and which ones grow under the ground.  This option is popular with our early primary school groups and provides an age appropriate and fun introduction to how pumpkins grow.  Includes time in the corn maze OR a wagon ride to our neighbour’s apple orchard and apple picking. 

Option C:  Take on the challenge of the corn maze and go on a wagon ride to pick apples.

 ***Options A, B and C include a small pumpkin to take home for each student OR one large pumpkin for the classroom
