Fall Harvest Tour
Available September 12 - November 3, 2017
This fall, Trunnell's Farm Tours will be leaping into the exciting adventure of Harvesting on the farm. From the pumpkin patch and gourds to our comprehensive learning plans, we will educate and entertain your class or group discover the life cycle of pumpkins and pollination by the honey bee as well as what goes on day to day at our real working farm. As soon as the children get off the bus they will begin a learning experience at Trunnell's without even realizing that the farm is a "lesson". Give your students or group the chance to EXPERIENCE THE HARVEST at Trunnell's Farm Market.
What's Included in your Fall Harvest Tour
Life Cycle of the PumpkinStudents will learn and investigate germination of a pumpkin and how our crops develop from seed to fruit, and importance of pollination.
Hop aboard the Fall Harvest Wagon RideStudents will climb aboard a wagon ride and tour a real working farm during the harvesting season stopping at the Pumpkin Patch.
"Spookley" the Square PumpkinStudents will learn about "Spookley" the Square Pumpkin! Spookley is a unique pumpkin that delivers a message of tolerance and kindness that is just right for October's Bullying Prevention Month!
Pumpkin PickingEach student will get to choose and take home the perfect pumpkin right off the vine from our amazing pumpkin patch - a "true" farm harvesting experience.
Explore the Animal BarnyardStudents will get up close and personal with our barnyard animals! Come meet the rabbits, goats, pigs, ducks, chickens, and baby calf!
Playtime in the Fun-AcreThe Fun-Acre is a block of land next to the market that provides bushels of fun. Educational and entertaining activities abound in the Fun-Acre. The rope maze, straw maze, corn pit, corn hole, straw pyramid, the Trunnell Tunnel Slide, and more will leave smiles on everyone throughout their "Absolutely Fresh" experience.

CancellationsOut of respect for other tour groups, and to maintain booking flexibility, cancellations need to be made within two weeks of the visit. If cancellations are not made within this time frame they are severely damaging in that another class is deprived of a trip. Therefore, cancellation less than 2 weeks in advance or "no-shows" will result in a charge of $75.00.
Cancellations need to be person to person--messages left on voice mail are NOT acceptable. In case of rain, Trunnell's will make any cancellation decisions the morning of the trip. Please call that morning if you have any questions. If cancellation is due to weather, the above fee will be waived for all cancellations, and Trunnell's will be happy to assist in rescheduling your tour.
