School Field Trips
Sullivan Farm hosts field trips for students of all ages, on different topics depending on the season. In the fall we focus on the harvest and different families we have growing in the field. Winter is maple sugaring season, with field trips including stories, tours, and tastes. New growth and life cycles is the theme for spring. All of our programs for different ages connect with the CT State Science Standards. For more information about our school field trips, email Jenna at email@example.com.
