STRAWBERRY SEASON BEGINS AT THE END OF APRIL AND RUNS THROUGH MAY
Strawberry Season is one of our favorite times of the year! We have u-pick fields open around mid-April during the week and on the weekends, along with offering field trips to schools and other organizations during this time.
A strawberry field trip to Deans Farm Market in the spring provides an opportunity for students to have a hands-on learning experience while gaining an understanding of how their fruits and vegetables grow. Our main goal is to inform, engage and entertain students in the best classroom there is…..MOTHER NATURE! Farm tours are essential for educating students on the food they eat, the growing process, nutrition and the farming profession. We offer a Pick Your Own Strawberry Program for schools, daycare’s, and other organizations!
What will students experience during our strawberry field trips?
We are providing THREE different packages for the Spring this year.
This package includes a coloring sheet, sticker, interactive/educational farm lesson (geared to specific age level) about the life cycle of a strawberry plant and how we grow our strawberries at Deans Farm Market, an interactive story read to the students about strawberries (depending on age), a strawberry craft, each student can pick a pint of strawberries in our u-pick fields, and all-day use of our new and improved playground.
Each teacher receives Strawberry Handouts to assist with their teaching plans!
Field trips are offered at the mid-April —May 31, weekdays only. Teachers may pick a pint with the kids or pick (and pay) by the pound! Parents may pick and pay by the pound only!
