Information for Teachers
We know how hard you work and want to make your trip to Trunnell's Farm meaningful and enjoyable. We have compiled a list of tips to help you prepare for your Educational School Tour. Please take time to read this important information. To help you with your lesson plans we are also including the parts of the Kentucky Combined Curriculum Document that we will touch on during your trip to our farm. With a trip to the farm, you will see that much of what we talk about and experience crosses the curriculum.
Important Information / How to Prepare for Your Visit
- Have money collected from all students and parents before arriving; teacher will pay for students, siblings and parents at one time. We cannot have parents paying individually, as it will take time away from your tour. We accept cash (large bills only, no coins) Checks, Purchase Orders, Visa and Master Card.
- Bring students in main gate and check-in at the Farm Market. Each student, parent, or sibling will receive a wristband which must be put on before starting the tour. You will also receive an itinerary for your day at the farm.
- Allow two and a half hours for your visit this includes 15 minutes to check in, Guided Tour, a half hour for lunch, and 45 minutes of play time (not necessarily in that order.) You may stay longer for additional playtime, but please plan to depart by 3:00 p.m.
- The time that you are scheduled for is the time your tour will begin. If you arrive early, you will have to wait until your scheduled time to begin your tour. If you are late in arriving, it may be impossible to take the complete tour. We will try our best, but we cannot interfere with other schools that were on time.
- We suggest that you wear comfortable clothing and shoes, this is a real farm with lots of dirt. Due to unpredictable weather it is important to have the students dress in layers. Hats and sunscreen are recommended.
- If you have further questions please call 270-733-2222.
