FUN WAYS TO ADD AGRICULTURE TO
Farmstead Field Trips
This is our richest educational experience available. Students visit The Farmstead as a class for a self-guided field trip on the farm, free play time, and pumpkin picking off the vine. Teacher curriculum is available to connect their on-the-farm experience with in-class objectives. Chances are, even the teachers will walk away with a new-found understanding of Idaho agriculture!

Food Plate Fun Pass
The Food Plate Fun Pass is a great opportunity for students to recognize the importance of Idaho farms in a healthy diet. Students make note of their food choices for one week to earn a completely free student pass to The Farmstead, valid any day of the entire season. Teachers who lead their classes in this exercise also receive passes. The program is completely free and requires a minimal investment of time. In return, your students learn an important lesson and get a very exciting reward. Be sure to include the FPFP in your September lesson plans! Must by postmarked by September 30th.
Kick off your school year with a great unifying event that actually generates money for your school. Families come to your school night at The Farmstead for a deeply discounted price and your school gets a portion of the admission. Families are free to play at their own pace and will pick up some educational tidbits from the Idaho Farm Facts signs around The Farmstead.
