When are Field Trips?
Field trips are available Tuesdays through Fridays for groups of 25 or more. Summer 2013 field trips are available Tuesday, May 21 through Friday, June 28. Morning session arrival time is 9:30 a.m. and afternoon session arrival time is 11:30 a.m.
Field Trips are Self-Guided.
Our field trips are self-guided. You will have two hours to complete your field trip. There will still be plenty of staff on hand to help you. We will give you maps of all of the activities and where they are located. Your school may stay together as one group or divide up into smaller groups. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
What About Food?
Students are invited to bring their sack lunches to eat in the Farm's picnic area. Please help the students to clean up after their picnics -- this will teach them to respect the property of others and to always leave a place cleaner than they found it. You can also purchase a Farm Meal for $4. We must know in advance how many Farm Meals will be required for your group.
Fees and Registration.
The cost for the field trip is $8 per student and $8 per adult, with one teacher admitted free with every 20 students. Fees are payable on the day of your trip. Purchase orders are accepted. Registration is required. Please call 405-799-FARM (3276) or take advantage of the online registration form to book your trip!
All School Field Trips Include the Following:
Visit to the Animal Barn
Students will have a chance to pet the barnyard animals. (Hand-washing stations are provided, and hand-washing is required.) Wilbur, the pot bellied pig, loves to have his back scratched. Thumper and Lucille, our lambs, just love to be petted. Spot, the Flemish Giant Rabbit, loves to be scratched between the ears. Sara, Cotton and Candy the goats, are very entertaining!
Ride the Jupiter Train
Students will ride the Jupiter Train, a third scale replica of the United States' first transcontinental locomotive. This historic train met the Union Pacific's #119 at Promontory Summit on May 10, 1869 -- it was on the nation's very first transcontinental railway. If time permits, the students may ride the carousel ($1 extra per student).
Students will love spending time playing on the Giant Jumping Pillows, Hay Mountain, Super Slides, Playground and Horse Swings. Plus, they will have a blast finding their way through the Amaze'n Maze!
Take a Hayride (spring and fall only)
Take a hayride around the Farm. Learn more about horses as we take you around the Farm and view the largest horse training center in Oklahoma with 240 stalls.
This spring, learn all about "Barnyard Animals!" The Animal Barn features educational information associated with each animal. Plus, see instructional boards featuring fun facts and more information spread throughout the Farm.
