FIELD TRIP RULES AND FAQ
All reservations must be made by phone in advance and are only for school groups of 15 or more students.
FIELD TRIP ACTIVITIES
The stations you may experience at the farm are dependent upon age and the time of year. The farm is not open to the general public on Field Trip days, so not ALL attractions are open on these dates. Some of these experiences include YesterLand Express, Santa's Runaway Sleigh, a wagon train ride, an educational video inside of an authentic tipi, and more! You will also have the opportunity to see and learn about YesterLand's farm animals and Race the Rubber Ducks! Remember this is a hands-on experience on a real working farm. Our teachers love these field trips as they are clean, organized, and safe!
FOOD & DRINKS
During Field Trips our Burger Bin is open for your convenience, serving drinks, hot dogs and hamburgers. We offer a special meal deal option which includes a burger, chips, and drink for $11.50 or a hot dog, chips, and drink for $8.50. In addition to the Burger Bin, guests are always allowed to bring their own sack lunches! If school groups want to purchase meals for students, please reserve them in advance of your scheduled date.
UPON ARRIVAL TO YESTERLAND FARM
SCHOOL GROUPS: Your main teacher contact will pay for your entire group of students with a school check or cash while the students are unloading the buses. (Parents and siblings are to pay $10 cash (only) at the gate.) The teachers will meet for a quick group orientation and lunch location/time assignments will be given. At this time, teachers will receive a schedule of activities for the day! Classes are then welcomed to the farm and released to start learning and enjoying the farm!
TIPS FOR YOUR VISIT
Dress appropriately, remember to be mindful of the weather. Close-toed shoes are always recommended.
Consolidate lunches in boxes/coolers and put on the back of your bus.
We will unload and carry lunches o the picnic area while you are unloading the students.
In the event of cancellation, contact YesterLand Farm a minimum of 10 business days prior to your scheduled event. If you fail to cancel 10 days prior, you agree to pay in full for your event.
In case of inclement weather: Although we rely heavily on the weathermen, they are not always correct. Remember, 50% chance of rain means 50% chance it won’t! Rescheduling due to weather will be discussed between the school and YesterLand Farm the morning of the field trip by 7:30 am.
