FIELD TRIP RULES AND FAQ

RESERVATIONS

All reservations must be made online or via email 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 during field trips other than Friday field trips in October. This means that not ALL of the attractions are open during some weekday field trips. Some of our weekday field trip attractions include our YesterLand Express, Santa's Runaway Sleigh, a wagon train ride, an educational video inside of an authentic tipi, and more! Friday Field Trips in October will include all our normal operating 2022 Fall Festival attractions. 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 Weekday Field Trips our Burger Bin is open for your convenience, serving drinks, hot dogs and hamburgers. 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. During Fall field trips, parents and siblings are to pay the weekday price of $12 or Friday price of $14.95 when paying with the school. Parents and siblings that don't purchase with the school for a Fall Friday field trip will need to purchase a regular admission ticket online or 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 to 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.
