Thank you for your interest in Ballyntyne Learning Farm as a field trip destination! We aim to provide your students engaging hands-on projects, experiments, and learning that excites your students and accomplishes your educational goals. Please feel free to send an email to the Director to discuss curriculum options and to answer any other questions you may have. Please note that Ballyntyne Learning Farm is growing and we are currently offering mixed-aged classes for toddlers to third graders and field trips for students up to fifth grade. We hope to expand our offerings very soon!
When planning your group or classroom’s visit to Ballyntyne, we encourage chaperones to help support the learners in their projects and in their needs. In this way, learners will not only have the support of the Ballyntyne Learning Farm staff and volunteers but also chaperones from their school or group to support them in their exploration as well.
DATES: The farm will reopen for the 2021 season on March 26th and will run through the end of October.
EVENTS: Events will be held on Mondays and Fridays and last 2 hours. While the majority of our events begin at 9am and end at 11am, we are happy to tweak that as needed for your group. Please feel free to send an email to us regarding the size of groups we can accommodate and which date would work best for your group.
PRICING: The price per participating child is $8.50 and chaperones are not charged. Please don't let the cost prevent you from booking a trip to the farm - feel free to reach out and we can work together to make a morning or afternoon at the farm possible!
