Sinkland Farms has three special field trips, the Fall Harvest Educational Experience, the Harvest Nature Experience, and the Educational Farm Environment Experience, plus a customized option for special class needs.

Classroom learning comes alive at Sinkland Farms!  Let your students create the memories that only Sinkland Farms–with our pumpkins, farm fields, hayrides and farm animals–can provide.

Sinkland Farms prides itself on hosting educational school field trips that are experiential in nature.  NOT A PLAYGROUND!  Children learn by doing, by experiencing.  At Sinkland Farms, young learners gain knowledge and develop skills and values outside a traditional classroom setting.

We incorporate Virginia Standards of Learning in all field trips.  Bring your class, club, troop and friends.  Enjoy a day of fun AND learning on the Farm!

Field Trips for all ages! Special needs groups of all ages welcome!
