Experience the harvest farm tour

Looking for a way to spice up your fall lesson plans?  Give your students the chance to experience the harvest at Ramseyer Farms this fall!  We are open in September and October for “dig in the dirt” learning experiences for your students.  Each student will have the opportunity to observe the harvest, pick a personal pumpkin, visit the farm animals, and more. Each tour is specifically designed for the appropriate grade level of your class and is carefully aligned with state of Ohio content standards.
