Great educational opportunities - let us know your focus and interests - Tucker Farms has been hosting farm tours for school children since about 1970. Not surprisingly, we have been hosting tours for many years now for the children of those early children. We are not certain but it is certainly possible that grandchildren may start showing up if they haven't already. Needless to say, it has become a tradition for several local schools. Teachers have been able to work up learning modules for this tour, even the youngest children make up posters and painting about what they saw and write notes to us about what they learned. See photos in Gallery - For several years, by special arrangement, elementary school groups have been coming to Tucker Farms in the spring to plant pumpkins and return in the fall to see the results. Their teachers have developed curricula to go along with these 'field trips'.
