Field Trip Program

Marana Pumpkin Patch offers an educational experience and fun-filled day that all students will enjoy.

Our field trips are designed for children in preschool all the way up to third grade. Not only will the students have a blast, but by allowing them to observe the farm and its activities in its natural state, they get a sense of how life maintains in a self-sustaining environment. We educate a positive outlook of farm life and the agricultural processes as a whole.

SORRY WE'RE FULL! - We'll start booking again in May for 2017.

Chaperones:

Although we love to see parents participating in their child’s education, we do have to ask that teachers please keep your parent and sibling numbers low so we can have as many students as we can enjoy our farm. Please only invite the parents that you need in order to make your field trip great.
