We offer exciting Fall School Field Trips at our farm in Tyngsboro, MA (outside of Boston) which are designed for pre-school through 3rd grade children.

Our tours include a hayride through the apple orchard, apple picking from dwarf trees (the children can pick the apples themselves!), pumpkin picking in the pumpkin patch, food for the children to feed our animals at Annie’s Animal Barns, picnic area, large indoor restroom facility and more!
