Field trips are by reservation only and are scheduled throughout the week. Sessions begin at 8:30 a.m. and are scheduled every 1/2 hour. The cost is $8 per child. Plan on staying at least 2 hours—or longer if you want to have a picnic lunch at the farm. Our Fall Harvest field trip comes with a hay ride to the pumpkin patch and up to a 10 pound pumpkin. The field trip consists of pig races, mini corn maze, jumping giant air pillow, corn cannons, and enjoying the animals on the farm.
Students can enjoy a scenic ride on our Hawes Farms Express Railroad. For an extra $3.00 per student, parent, or chaperone, you can ride on our 24 gauge train around our pumpkin patch and through our Walnut orchard. Our train was the 46th of 49 trains ever built by the Allan Herschell Company back in New York. The Hawes Express is a replica of the “Jupiter” which was the train that went from California to Promissory Point in Utah when the transcontinental railroad was completed in 1863. This date is also special to us, since 1863 is the year William Hawes moved to Anderson and began purchasing our farm land.
Please remember that the children work up a thirst running around and you might want to send extra water or have their parents add a water bottle to their lunch. Submit your reservation request at least 8 days in advance of your field trip to allow Hawes Farms plenty of time to prepare for your visit. Submit your reservation by clicking the button below.
