Southern Hill Farms School Field Trips in Clermont FL

We’re committed to bringing our love of agriculture to our community and connecting children with the food they eat and their neighbors who grow it. We provide engaging field trips for local elementary and middle schools during our spring blueberry harvest on Tuesdays through Fridays in April and May, as well as our pumpkin patch during the month of October. All field trips must be reserved in advance and will receive a customized schedule of events for their day on the farm. Parents are encouraged to attend with their children to enjoy the day together.

Spring Field Trips

  • Students will enjoy blueberry picking, farm wagon rides, age appropriate story time and a craft.
  • Our covered playground is an ideal place to stay and play in the shade, and our permanent restrooms make bathroom breaks a breeze.
  • We’ve got a covered picnic area if you choose to bring your own lunch and/or snack to enjoy after the field trip.
  • Our bakery, Southern Hill Sweets, is open weekdays and serving blueberry donuts, blueberry cobbler, blueberry lemonade and muffins, and other sweet treats made right here at the farm (bakery items range from $1 to $4). We have bottled waters and canned sodas, our own handcrafted lotions, scrubs, lips balms, local raw honey and more for purchase in our Southern Hill Market.
  • Teachers are free to attend with their students, however they will pay the market price of $4/lb price if they wish to pick blueberries. Each field trip is required to have at least two teachers OR one teacher and one chaperone per class.
  • Only two teachers OR chaperones are allowed on the Farm Wagon ride with the children at a time. This ensures that we can accommodate all students on one hayride during their allotted timeslot.

Our field trip times are flexible to make a customized schedule that is perfect for your group. A typical field trip lasts approximately three hours. We can accommodate up to three classes on one field trip day, and we can divide a large number of classes into multiple, consecutive days. There is a ten student minimum to reserve a date. Select dates are still available for the 2020 blueberry season in April and May, as well as select weekdays in October 2019.
