Agri-Tours for Education
Our agri-tours focus on education. Whether your group of 15 or more is school-age kids, a senior tour, or a church or hobby group looking for in-the-field training on what goes into sustainable farming, our tour staff will share a wealth of information about farming as we tour the land. We will show your tour group what’s happening on the farm right now, field your farming questions, and we are open to addressing specific agricultural topics if you present them to us ahead of time.
Agri-Tours for Fun
You’re going to learn a lot on our agri-tours, but you’ll also have fun at the farm. Our tour guides are engaging and excited about what they do at Bass Farms and how the farm runs. The tour will include a wagon ride behind one of our tractors (safe for all ages) and time to walk around the farm and look at things up close. You will also have access to our specialty foods market for a snack or a little farm fresh shopping.
Tours Available May – October
Most people only think of taking an agricultural tour during harvest time – but there is activity on the farm all growing season for us to share with you. If you’re working on a lesson plan you should consider scheduling several trips to see how a working farm changes month to month. Here’s what you can expect to see on your agri-tours:
- May – Fields ready for planting or full of seedlings.
- June & July – Lush development as plants grow hearty and start to produce.
- August – Heavy vegetable production, sweet corn harvesting, gourds and squash growing.
- September – Green vegetable harvest winding down, honey production, squash & pumpkins fill the fields.
- October – Pumpkin Time! Putting the fields to bed for the winter.
How Agri-Tours Work
Plan ahead and schedule your agri-tour as early as possible to make sure we have a wagon available for your group. Agri-tours are great options for school groups, home schoolers, Girl Scouts & Boy Scout troops, senior groups and bus tours. We have plenty of room for parking. Our wagons are safe for any age tour guests.
