For over 30 years, we have been educating students about what takes place on our family farm. Children and teachers alike love field trips at Akron Acres! We provide an interactive guided tour with information about animals geared towards the specific age level of the students. Students will learn about a variety of farm animals including pigs, cows, goats, sheep, chickens and horses. All students are encouraged to have a hands-on experience by touching our animals. The tour also includes a pony ride and a hayride around our crop fields.
The fall tours focus on winter preparations at the farm. We educate the students on how the animals adapt and prepare for the cold winter months and how the crops are harvested and stored to feed the animals all winter long.
Tours include the following:
- Educational barn tour, poultry barn tour, pony ride and hayride
- Indoor and heated picnic facilities available to eat lunch
- Clean, flush toilet restrooms and running water for handwashing
- Fall tour are $13.00 per person and includes a pumpkin from the patch
- Tours are available Tuesdays to Thursdays from the end of September through October
