Best field trips in KC: Hands-on adventure at Fun Farm

Field trips are all about expanding learning through hands-on activities and immersive experiences within the community. Not only do field trips provide a fun getaway, they are also a great opportunity for team-building exercises and getting to know classmates in more ways than one.

Whether you’re learning about art, biology, leadership, or more, the best field trips help make the subject more relevant and intimate, giving students the chance to truly learn first-hand about the topic and immerse themselves into something new.

At Fun Farm, we offer an exciting field trip for students and faculty alike. Students get the opportunity to explore our grounds, including our beehive, farm animals, and corn maze, and experience adventure and learning firsthand! To learn more about the Fun Farm experience click here!

Why Fun Farm field trips?
Visiting a farm for a school field trip is a great way for students to explore something they may not have experienced before. They can learn hands-on about agriculture and nature, helping to connect with it and their peers on a greater level.

Plus, it’s just pure, wholesome fun!

Your crew will love seeing the sights and sounds of our farm, adventuring and learning through different areas—especially our corn maze, which is the perfect team-building activity for kids and adults! Your class will work together to solve riddles and find their way out of the maze, all while enjoying the outdoors and each other.

Our field trips and activity stations, which we staff with our Fun Farm experts during your visit, are backed by experience and knowledge. We consulted with a retired teacher to ensure we’re up to date with the most current Grade Level Expectations (GLEs) from the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.
