A signed field trip contract and a $100 deposit are required to reserve your field trip.

Cost:

The cost is $10 per person (children, adults, and chaperones), when paid in ONE transaction.

 

One FREE teacher admission per 20 students. Kids 2 and under are FREE (pumpkins for kids 2 and under can be purchased)

Schools must make a reservation for their group at least 7 days in advance of their visit to qualify for the school group rate. 

You must have a minimum of 20 people age 2 and older to qualify for the school rate. If your group has less than 20 people, you have two options:

  1. General Admission on any day during our Fall Season. (Pumpkin/lesson/coloring book not included)

  2. Home School and Daycare Day: Monday, October 9th, 2023. Parents and their home-schooled children may take advantage of the school group rates, even if there are less than 20 people. No reservations necessary. Please let the cashier know at check-in that you are checking in for Home School/Daycare Day. You will not be assigned a private hayride time. The hayride departs once an hour starting at 10:30am and ending at 5:30pm. You will be responsible for gathering your group for a hayride to pick your own pumpkin (under 5 pounds, included). Check-in opens at 10am. You will not receive the lesson, but you will receive the coloring book.

 

Final Payment:

Please bring a completed School Check-In Form, payment for your entire group, and pay upon arrival at check-in. A 3.5% fee will be added for schools using a credit card to pay.

Any person paying separately will not receive the group rate - they will pay general admission. If parents are arriving separately or paying on their own, please have them arrive early to purchase before the rest of your group arrives. They may also purchase admission ahead of time online.

You will receive wristbands for your group at check-in after payment is completed, based on the number you provide on your check-in form. Please make sure you receive the correct number of wristbands before walking away from the cashier. If you do not have enough, you will have to purchase more before entering the farm. Everyone in your group must be properly wearing a wristband to enter the farm. You are responsible for distributing your wristbands to your group members!

Tips for a Successful Trip:

 

  1. DRESS: Please tell the kids to dress appropriately for the conditions (in layers if it’s cold, in breathable clothing if it’s hot) and to wear clothes that are comfortable for movement and activity. Wear old shoes! 

  2. FAQ: Please visit our website and review the Policies & FAQ page before your visit. 

  3. BATHROOMS: Magnolia Meadow Farms has portable restrooms at the entrance to the farm and at the back of the farm behind our Farm Animal Interactions area.

  4. FOOD: Our Concessions will be open and available if your students would like to purchase food or drinks. Please see the menu on our website. The farm has water, soda, cider, juice and other beverages available for purchase, but does not provide free drinks or cups.

  5. PUMPKINS: We recommend bringing bags with your students' names on them, or a sharpie to mark the bottoms of the pumpkins with each kid's names. Save yourself from the trouble of figuring out whose pumpkins were whose!
