​Whitehall Farm is a working, educational farm. We offer parent-child programs, pre-K-12 school field trips, classes for adults, and other group educational opportunities. 

Field Trip Information:

We offer standards-based, theme-based field trips for school-aged children (pre-K-12) from local schools, scouting troops, etc. Students will participate in hands-on, experiential learning in an authentic farm setting. Educators can choose from a variety of topics that complement their curricula. For example:

  • Wonder of Plants (plant parts, fundamental resources of plants, planting & harvesting)
  • Soil Stories (soil components, ecosystem, composting)
  • Pollinators (diversity of pollinators, bees, role in ecosystem, adaptations)
  • Habitats (plant & animal habitats, diversity)
  • Investigating Agriculture (who are farmers, farming in VA, history, organic & sustainable growing practices, path from farm to market to table)
  • Animals on the Farm (chickens, pigs, cows; feeding & education)

Additional Seasonal Activities can include: Wagon Rides, Corn Maze, Inflatables, Pumpkin Patch, etc.

Field trips are generally offered Monday through Fridays. They last about three hours and we invite schools to stay and have lunch in our picnic area. Field trips have a base cost of $250 per 25 students and cost $10 per participating child and per adult after that. Teachers and aids are free.  Adjustments to this schedule may be available upon request.

Our parent-child program is an innovative program that combines a hands-on farm activity or craft with your child and listening to a story highlighting a farm theme. Parents/guardians and young children (ages preschool to 8 years) are welcome.

Each program costs $8 per participating child.

The programs are on Fridays at 10 am, beginning in June, and last about 90 minutes. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Please sign up here so we can make sure we have enough materials for each participating child.
