Field Trips

Bring your kids to the farm for a fun and educational experience! See why we have schools from Burnet to Houston have their field trips at Sweet Eats Fruit Farm!

Field Trips include a guided tour of the farm. Students will learn about many things around the farm including the petting zoo animals and the fruit. The information on the tour will depend on the season. The tour takes about an hour.

Topics for the field trips include 

 

  • Learned vs inherited traits
  • Life cycle of a plant or animal
  • Animal care

  • Adaptation
  • Ecosystems
  • Composting

  • Map Reading
  • Geology & Stratification
  • Pumpkin patch (seasonal)
  • Strawberry picking (seasonal)

We will personally tailor each experience (content and/or length) to meet the needs and the desires of your students.  Ex: If you are studying the life cycle of a plant, we can work that information into our presentation.

After the tour, most groups bring a sack lunch and enjoy it at our numerous picnic tables. Then it is FREE TIME.
