We love sharing the farm and what it means to be
responsible stewards of the land and sustainable farmers.
We offer a variety of opportunities to visit the farm...
There is something for all ages and interests from workshops, classes & educational
field trips, to Faeriewood & sensory trail hikes, Writer's Trail, Meadow-tation & baby goat yoga.
Our field trips are designed & led by FarmHer Joy, a former middle school teacher, so you can be sure students will be engaged & NCSCOS objectives met.
There are even a few annual events like Spring Fling Open Farm Day & Shearing Day.
Check the calendar under the News & Events tab to see what's coming up.
To help get you started we've included a little information about some of the fun things we offer.
Fun on the Farm Field Trips
Our student groups learn hands on about the connections between ALL living things while exploring the barnyard, fields, woodlands, and wetlands. Animal encounters educate & promote empathy. Engaging programs are designed to be relevant with real world applications.
Visitors learn about sustainable, environmentally sound farming & stewardship on our predator friendly farm through an interactive tour that takes the participant over the entire farm & into a variety of ecosystems. Activities such as
The Egg Project, Input vs. Output, Farmyard Forensics, and Insect Census easily satisfy NC Standard Course of Study objectives for grades 3, 4, & 5 in several subject areas.
Other age appropriate opportunities are available, as well, and can be customized to fit units of study for lower
grades thru high school.
Field trips can be scheduled any weekday except Wednesday, April thru September.
Cost is $10/student and we require a minimum of 2 chaperones for every 20 students.
Required chaperones are free; any additional chaperones or adults are $8 each.

Providence Farm is a real life, working farm.
