Get Lost — or Not!
Each Fall, we grow about 8 acres of corn with paths carving an intricate maze design.  There are learning opportunities for students in the maze (following instructions, navigating skills, etc), as well as the opportunity for exercise and fresh-air fun.  Teachers determine whether to include an a-maze-ing adventure for their classes.

Pumpkins and Bees, if you please!
Take a wagon ride to the pumpkin patch. Learn why bees are needed to grow pumpkins. We also talk about the different varieties of pumpkins, gourds and squash. Students will be able to pick their own 'kid-sized' pumpkin from the field.

hotAttrPhotosThe Cackle Palace: Sing it to me, Ladies! 
Learn the difference between chickens and roosters and why some eggs are brown, some are white, and some have polka dots. Also, learn different names for chickens: hens, roosters, pullets, cocks, etc.

Dewberry Farm's Barnyard Babies 
Our barnyard has grown by leaps and bounds. It's home to baby chickens (chicks), baby rabbits (kits) and baby goats (kids).  Students have the opportunity to feed goats and visit with other animals in the barnyard, like a miniature donkey, guineas, and turkeys.
