Dearest Teachers and school groups,
It is with much dismay we regret to inform you G&M Farms will not be conducting field trip tours at our farm this year. Due to the COVID-19 virus and for the safety of all, we are not able to open according to Alameda County’s guidelines for schools and mass gatherings. Some of you have inquired about a virtual field trip option, but unfortunately our farm is not equipped to provide an online experience this year. We will truly miss seeing all of you as most of our teachers and schools have been coming every October for many, many years. We hope the current situation will safely move forward and we will be able to see you all again next year. Until then, stay safe and well, and try to have a Happy Halloween and rest of 2020!
Give your kids a fun and educational day on the farm!
G & M Farms Pumpkin Patch Field Trips fulfill California teaching standards for preschool thru 4th grade. Your class will think it’s a holiday, but they’ll be learning about agriculture and biology!
We start at the edge of the farm, and then it’s up on the wagons for a ride around the cornfield. After the ride, it’s into our clever cornfield classrooms, where our tour guides teach the life cycle of the pumpkin plant, from seed to blossom to gourd to seed again in a fun, interactive lesson.
When class is out you’ll cross a field of pumpkins to our play area, where the guided tour ends. Say hello to our farm animals, explore our hay bale maze, play in the corn box, or take a class photo on our antique hay wagon – and when you’re ready to go each child can select his or her very own pumpkin right out of the field!
Tours are scheduled every half hour from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM. Tours are $12.00 per child, and Teacher is free!
