Field Trips

Melon Acres’ Down on the Farm Field Trips!

 Field trips are a wonderful way to reward your students/children plus a great learning experience! Melon Acres is happy to welcome all those interested in bringing a group to our farm.  Our field trips can be scheduled throughout any week in October.

Field trips include:

  • Journey through our 4.5 acre corn maze
  • Hayrides
  • A fun-filled farm playground (not your average playground!)
  • Pick your own lil pumpkin
  • Pumpkin Painting
  • Learn how a pumpkin grows plus plant a pumpkin seed to take home!
  • Charlie Brown Great Pumpkin movie
  • Picnic areas available for sack lunches
  • Campfires available to roast hot dogs and s’mores

Cost:  $5.00/child

As mentioned campfires are available to roast hot dogs and s’mores.  These items can be provided for you at an additional $2.00 per child or you can opt to bring your own.  Worried about the campfires and small children? We also offer the option of cooking the food for you! Contact us today to discuss in more detail!
