Discovery Days (for small groups)

Thank you for your interest in visiting Centennial Farm on a Discovery Day.

Centennial Farm Discovery Days program is an unguided tour program offered on the below dates and is open to all grade levels and ages. During a Discovery Day, “farmers” are stationed around the farm available to answer questions and provide information. Upon check-in, you will receive a map to aid you in getting around and seeing all Centennial Farm has to offer. We also offer an opportunity for children to pet a chick, plant a radish seed and see a milking demonstration at 9:30 a.m. (provided our cow is giving milk).
