Educational Tours for Elementary Students in The Hampton Roads Region

Bring your school group to Green Hand Farm Park and let them get "in touch" with their food with a combination of education and fun! We'll provide a day of hands-on experiences as they explore our farm, play, and learn about the importance of agriculture.

There are tons of activities for kids at the Farm Park. Our attractions include a 8-acre Giant Corn Maze, hayrides, and more. For a complete list of attractions, visit our Attractions page.

Teachers, we are also available to work with you to develop related curriculum for your students to apply during their visit or back in the classroom. Please contact us and we will help you in any way we can. The tour is recommended for students in kindergarten through 5th grade, but pre-school children are more than welcome to visit with the same curriculum.

Planning Ahead

For a comfortable and safe experience, we advise -

  • Wear long pants, the corn can get scratchy
  • Wear closed-toe shoes or sneakers
  • Bring an extra sweater or jacket, then weather can change quickly
