School Tours at Philip Foster Farm

Pioneer Life Tour 3rd to 8th grades

Available April – October. This hands-on tour is a favorite with two full hours of activity. Students grind corn, use a crosscut saw, visit a pioneer house, store and barn, use a washboard and wringer, build a log cabin, and pack a wagon for the long trip west. Many teachers tell us its their favorite field trip ever, and students agree!

Cost is $6.00 per person, including adults. School staff is free. In spring of 2014, prices will change to $7.00 for students and $5.00 for adults.

September and October tours are $6.00 per student, $5.00 per adult. Check the calendar for available dates and reserve your tour soon. We allow reservations up to one year in advance, and our calendar fills quickly!
