FARM VISITS

Farm Visits are structured, educational, fun visits to Coastal Roots Farm that last 1-3 hours and are led by our staff of educators and farmers. We offer both Youth and Community Farm Visits. Depending on group type and age, themes range from nature exploration to sustainability to farm tours and tastings.

Youth Farm Visits

Community Farm Visits

Pricing

Coastal Roots Farm is committed to providing educational experiences to everyone in our community, regardless of ability to pay. Like our pay-what-you-can Farm Stand, our Farm Visits are also pay-what-you-can. The suggested donation of $12-$15/participant* reflects our cost to plan and run the program, as well as the cost of producing and maintaining educational spaces on the Farm.
*Farm Visits that are 1 hour have a suggested donation of $12/participant.
*Farm Visits that are 2+ hours have a suggested donation of $15/participant.

If you are interested in bringing a group for a Farm Visit, please fill out the Farm Visit Interest Form. Email jaclyn@coastalrootsfarm.org with any questions.
