EDUCATIONAL SCHOOL TOURS
During our Fall Festival, Chappell Farms host school/group visits which offer education and fun. We offer relevant topics and activities for all Grade levels. THE IMPORTANCE OF FARM FIELD TRIPS Children today are removed from agriculture and their connection to where their food comes from -the grocery store is the most common response! From an educational perspective, there are many curriculum connections to be learned on the farm.
