About Jr. Farmer Tours
WHAT IS A JR. FARMER TOUR?
A Jr. Farmer Tour is part of Centennial Farm’s agriculture educational program. The tours meet Common Core State Standards.
Groups may participate in the following activities:
- Radish Seed Planting: Students will plant a radish seed to take back to school.
- Chick Education: Learn about the chick development process.
- Oxen Demonstration: Demonstration days vary depending on the volunteers’ schedules.
- Crops Education: See seasonal varieties in their various growth stages.
- Livestock Animal Education: See pigs, goats, sheep, cattle, rabbits and poultry in person.
Jr. Farmer Tours are for students in kindergarten through third grade.
Centennial Farm has a picnic area for eating lunch or snacks. Staff will assist with bringing lunches to the picnic area. Schools are responsible for bringing any of their remaining lunches/containers to your bus. No food or drinks are sold on premises.
