Good Food Day

E.A.T. south offers an interactive field trip where participants interact with our farm in many ways. During their field trip, students gain hands-on experience and enjoy an amazing day outside on our beautiful farm. 

Groups have the option of selecting their program as well as how long their trip lasts. Half Days are 1.5 hours and a Full Day is 3 hours. Teachers and group leaders can request specific farm lessons.

You may bring a lunch and picnic on the farm during your field trip free of charge. We have picnic blankets and picnic tables and chairs.

Maximum group size is 120 student participants. Larger group should split up over two days. Most field trips take place during week-day mornings Tuesday - Friday. We can work with your schedule if you need another day or time.
