Learning Expeditions Offered

Bowers Farm educational programs are fun and engaging, while teaching aspects of each grade level's state educational standards.  The recommended grade level is shown, but we can modify any program or activity to fit the needs of any grade or group, including families, scout troops, neighborhood groups, senior citizens, and church groups - just to name a few! Our educational staff is comprised of engaging, top-notch educators and capable of designing a program to fit your learning target needs. Please reach out to schedule your group today by filling out the form below.  Thank you for considering Bowers Farm for your educational enrichment. 

Traveling Farms

Traveling farms are intended to be an extension of activities that happen here on the farm.  They are provided after a group visits the farm as a way to extend learning into the classrooms.  We look forward to servicing your farm to classroom connection. 

Single Animal Visit

Choose the animal, the time, and the place that you would like us to visit and we will do the rest! Some popular animal visits include a turkey around Thanksgiving and baby goats or lambs in the springtime. Our staff will present a hands-on educational experience for you and your group. Given the experiential nature of this program, it is best for a group of 20 or less. If you have more than 20 people, we suggest that you divide into groups in order to receive the full benefit of the program.

Duration: as long as you need us
Cost: $50 set-up fee, plus $25 for each ½ hour session

Mobile Farm Animal Presentations 

We'd be happy to bring a complete farm to you! The animals included in our traveling farm are a pony, a milking goat, two baby goats, a lamb, a rabbit and various poultry. We will tailor the educational experience to fit your needs. Information about each animal will be given, as well as interactive, educational demonstrations and activities.

Duration: as long as you need us
Cost: $300 for the first hour; $100 for each additional hour.
