Field Trip to Sunshine Pumpkin Farm

Every year local homeschoolers take a trip to the Sunshine Pumpkin Farm to tour the farm and get pumpkins from the pumpkin patch. The tour usually begins with a walk through the barns to see the milking station, dairy cows, horses, and pigs. Upon exiting the last barn, the homeschoolers enter a yard where there are chickens roaming freely. They get the opportunity to get up close with the chickens by petting and holding them.

After their tour, the homeschoolers load up in a wagon pulled by a tractor and head out to the pumpkin patch in search of a pumpkin they would like to take home. The pumpkin they select is included in the tour price of 3 Euros/child.

Upon returning from the pumpkin patch, homeschoolers were able to purchase hot apple cider and other treats to enjoy. Visit Sunshine Pumpkin Farm on Facebook to learn more about their farm and events they hold.
