We're gearing up for Spring 2023 school field trips! Visit the farm and learn about how strawberries or blackberries are grown in Texas. Young' uns, teachers, and parents will have a blast rotating around the farm in groups. Have free play-time where kids can climb on our giant playscapes and play in the game barn. Visit the adventure farm to bounce on our giant jumping pads and take a wagon ride around the farm to see wildflowers. Visit the Rockberry Barnyard and and meet our friendly llamas, sheep, goats, chickens, ducks, rabbits, and more.
In the spring, visit a working strawberry and blackberry farm. Learn how berries are grown
in Texas. Learn how beneficial pollinators like honeybees help us grow our food.
In the fall, visit the pumpkin farm. Learn how pumpkins are grown in Texas. Learn about the Monarch Butterfly journey and how Rockberry is located on the great migration flyway for these incredible creatures.
FIELD TRIP ACTIVITIES
FOOD & DRINK
Students will unload from buses, enter the farm and wait as a group, while the lead teacher will head to the entrance to pay for the entire group of students and chaperones with a school check or cash. At this time, all signed waivers will be turned in and wristbands distributed to the teacher for each paid chaperone/parent. Each class, along with teachers and parents, will then head to orientation for a brief review of policies and reminders for a safe and fun visit.
Dress appropriately, and remember to be mindful of the weather. Socks and close-toed shoes are always strongly recommended. Socks are required to play on the Jumping Pillow.
Consolidate lunches in labeled boxes and/or wheeled coolers. All lunches will be stored inside the gate where you may retrieve them at the time of your scheduled lunch.
In the event of cancellation, contact Rockberry Ranch a minimum of 10 business days prior to your scheduled event. If you fail to cancel 10 days prior, you agree to pay in full for your event.
Because we are a farm in a rural location, we do not have adequate trash service to accommodate for our large field trip crowds. To avoid attracting critters, we require that you take your trash to your school dumpsters. We will provide trash bags for your use. Please appoint one parent per class in advance to help you with this task.
