Field Trips

Learning is an Educational Adventure on the Farm!

Teachers:  Searching for a fun, educational field trip about plant life cycles, pollination, agriculture, and animal well being that is geared to age level?  A Field Trip to Lewis Farms helps reinforce Michigan Education Standards.

We are a working farm with more than 700 acres of fruit orchards, vegetables, and farm animals.  We make learning hands on and fun!  Look for clues & find out about corn facts, life cycle of a chicken, and discover what bees, apples, and pumpkins all have in common.  Everyone on your field trip will have the opportunity to pet and feed our animals.  Find out what the animals eat and where they come from!  This is truly an adventure in learning that will not soon be forgotten.  Bring your cameras!  Depending on the season, the adventure will vary.  It’s an adventure … but it’s educational, as well!
