Amazingly Corny Fun

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.

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.

Field Trip FAQs

What is your cancellation policy?

Field Trips may be cancelled 30 days or more prior to your field trip date with no penalty.  A $50 cancellation fee will be applied to any cancellation made within 30 days of your field trip. If you are a no show for your reserved field trip we will charge a $200 no show fee.

Exceptions are made for cancellations due to inclement weather.

Can I add or decrease the number of students after my reservation is made?

Yes, of course. Please call us at 281-934-3276 or email reservations@dewberryfarm.com to make changes to your reservation. Please be aware that we often reach our maximum attendance for field trip reservations. Please check our availability before adding new participants to your group.

Can we bring coolers?

Yes, you are welcome to bring coolers. They should be unloaded from busses when you arrive and stored along the perimeter of the pavilion you are assigned to for lunch.

Where do we go when we get to the Farm?

Follow signs to the Field Trip Ticket Window to check in for your day at the farm.

Where should school busses unload & park?

Busses will be directed to unload the children at the yellow building where the Field Trip Ticket Window is located. Busses will then be directed to park on the north side of our parking lot near the area where children will be exiting at the end of the day.

How do we start off our tour of the farm?

After your group has checked in, each group will meet in our pavilion to listen to a short orientation.  This orientation will give directions to restrooms, rules of the farm, where to meet for lunch, and where to exit the farm, along with other information.

Will we have a tour guide?

No. Our field trips are self-guided tours. Each teacher or group leader can decide the order of the activities for their class. A list of available activities will be distributed to your group at orientation.

Do you require a certain number of chaperones?

No, whatever your school policy is will be fine.  All children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

Are parents and siblings welcome to join our school group?

Yes, we welcome parents and siblings, but it is ultimately up to each school to decide on this. The admission fee for siblings is the same as for the students…$9.00 per person for children age 3 – 17. Parents and chaperones are $10 per person. Whenever possible, we ask for the school to collect payments for the parents in advance. If this is not possible, parents may pay at the ticket window when they arrive. Online ticket sales are not available for field trips. Credit cards are accepted, but processing will take longer.

What time do you open / close?

Field trip hours are 9 AM – 2 PM.

Will the Country Store be open?

Yes, Country Store hours are 11:00 – 1:30 each day in the Fall and Christmas seasons. The Country Store will be closed during Spring field trips.

Will Concessions be open for food and drinks?

During our Fall Season, Roosters will be open from 10:30 – 1:30 for lunch and snacks.  During our Christmas and Spring seasons, a concession (TBD) will be open only if our daily attendance reaches 500 or more (which it does most days).  Please call to check.

What if rain is in the forecast?

If you are nervous about the weather we will do our best to reschedule your field trip or you can cancel with no penalty. We will post announcements regarding possible closures on our website and Facebook page by 8 AM on the day in question.

Is the farm wheelchair accessible?

Most areas of the farm are wheelchair accessible. The farm has hard, compact, dirt paths which are fine for most wheelchairs. Our wagon ride and train ride are not wheelchair accessible. If you have aides to assist with lifting, students may be transferred from their chair onto the ride when possible.

Can I bring a stroller or wagon?

Yes, absolutely!
