Let's Pick A Pumpkin & Learn About Harvesting! ~ Field Trip to Brooks Farms (Mount Albert)


An exploration of the growing cycle provides an opportunity for children to learn about growing fruits, grains, and vegetables on the farm. The farmer will explain the importance of each season (Spring/Planting, Summer/Growing, Fall/Harvest, Winter/Rest).


Children will learn about grain seeds and their everyday uses. Farm animals and their habits will be explored with a walking tour of the animal pens. Lastly a wagon/train ride will give visitors a look at the whole farm operation, which includes an apple orchard, various fruit, vegetable and grain fields, and the chance to pick their own fruit or vegetables.


All educational tours include a wagon ride around the farm to visit the pumpkin and strawberry fields.


Our play area includes a corn maze, straw jump, zip-lines, bouncing ponies, tricycles, and other farm-oriented activities. Farm animals include goats, chickens, ducks, geese, rabbits, turkeys, and pigs. Picnic area and washroom facilities are available.


The entire tour lasts approximately one hour.  

Arrive at 10am SHARP to collect your admission sticker from the front counter attendant (send 1 person from your family).  


The wagon will leave at 10:15am Sharp!.

If you are late you will miss the tour and will need to explore the farm on your own.  Your tickets will be left at the front counter.

After the tour there will be an opportunity for further
exploration of our play area and farm animals.
