School Tours

For more than three decades, we’ve been providing educational experiences for students on our family farm. Field trips to Akron Acres are beloved by both children and teachers alike! Our interactive guided tours are tailored to the age level of the students and offer fascinating insights into farm life.

During the tour, students will interact with a variety of farm animals, including pigs, cows, goats, sheep, chickens, and horses. We encourage hands-on learning, allowing all students to engage with our animals. They’ll also enjoy pony rides and hayrides through our crop fields.

Our tours include:

  • Educational livestock barn and poultry barn tours
  • Pony rides and hayrides
  • Indoor, heated picnic facilities for lunch breaks
  • Clean, flush toilet restrooms and running water for hand washing

In the spring season, our tours focus on the newborns of the barn and the growing crops in the fields. Students will have the chance to see lambs, baby goats, calves, and chicks, with newborn chicks hatching daily in the incubator. They’ll also observe tadpoles developing in our pond area.

During fall tours, we shift our focus to winter preparations on the farm. Students will learn how animals adapt and prepare for the colder months and how crops are harvested and stored to sustain them throughout winter.

Our spring tour is priced at $12 per person and is available from April through mid-June. The fall tour is priced at $14 per person and is available from September through October.

All farm tours and visits are by reservation only.   See our calendar for available dates.
