Our school tour volunteers lead one-hour tours of The Children’s Farm to school groups ranging in ages (3 years and up) and size (10-30 individuals). Guides share their knowledge of the farm and invite children in to meet the animals. Volunteers interested in this position must be comfortable interacting and managing children in a group setting, as well as be comfortable handling some of our smaller farm animals. Orientation includes shadowing a minimum of 3 tours given by a seasoned guide and reading through the tour manual.

Farm Tours run Monday-Friday depending on booking. There are NO tours on weekends, with the exception of Birthday Parties, which have a similar hour long format (Please inquire if this is something you are interested in). Tour times are 9:30am, 10:45am, 12:00pm, and 1:00pm. Once you have applied to be a farm tour guide, shadowed tours, and approved to do tours, you will have access to the schedule and will be able to sign up for as many tours as you would like.

Please contact the email provided to set-up initial shadow date and we can continue from there.
