Our next Open Field Trip is: Thursday, April 6, 2017
Tickets are $9 per person
Gates open at 9:30 a.m. and the tour starts at 10:00 a.m. Please don’t be late so that you are able to see the entire tour. Guided tours last for 1 1/2-2 hours. After the tour children may have a pony ride for an extra $5.00 which you can pre-book with your tickets or pay in cash the day of. We welcome you to bring your lunch and eat under one of our pavilions after the tour.
Your tour begins with a farm talk. You and your children will learn about the history of Rancho Alegre Farm and meet the owners Pilar and Nico! They will also learn a few basic farm safety rules. Next, you will join your group and tour through our unique learning stations! Here’s a little about each!
