Notes From our Visitors

“I love the personalized experience, having a guide to direct schools so there is limited waiting for each attraction, all the best parts of a visit to the farm in a short amount of time. I love having our lunches held for us and a specified place to eat them. My favorite part of all is Farmer Paul’s talk with the students. I love that he connects them to his family’s history and even brings God into the explanation of how crops are grown, which fits well with our school’s Mission.”

“Paul’s talk and the overall experience. It gives the children a real life experience they will remember.”

“We picked Siegel’s farm because you guys have the best guided field trip and are very organized. We love it there.”

“Good educational program, gives children a chance to experience a farm setting, close to our school and we keep coming back for the great experience!”

I would like to send you a huge thank you for a wonderful day! My students and I came for a field trip yesterday and had the most amazing time. Your farm is beautiful and so well organized! We loved the classroom with Farmer Paul and his speech was outstanding and very educational for young students. Sue was also so helpful from the time I booked the field trip to the day we arrived. Again, thank you so much for providing our area with such a beautiful and outstanding farm. You all are doing an fantastic job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

Its hard finding a safe fun clean place to bring my two toddlers. But there was so much kid friendly stuff to do my boys had a blast. The weather was a bit rainy but the staff went above and beyond to make sure everything was as dry as could possibly be. I recommend this place for anyone with kiddos.
