To register for a guided tour, please fill out our online form and click “submit”. A farm crew member will be in touch with you to answer any additional questions you may have! Guided tours will be held on the second Tuesday of each month from 1:30-2:30pm and the last Saturday of each month from 9:00am-10:00am.
This general group tour is offered for youth groups; home school groups; elementary, middle school or high school groups; community groups; the general public; and others who are interested in visiting the farm!
If you are from a college, university or environmental/sustainability nonprofit and you are interested in bringing your class or student researchers to the farm for a visit + tour, please contact farm at dickinson.edu directly.
Guided tours are led by a farm staff member or student farmer and will include stops at our children’s garden, greenhouses, compost rows, production fields, livestock pastures, yurts and solar energy installations. Most tours take about one hour from start to end, but we can shorten tours to forty-five minutes upon request
All tours will start at the kiosk by the parking lot. Bring sunscreen, hats and water if it’s a sunny day!
We ask for at least one week’s advanced registration for tours.
Not interested in planning a tour? No problem! We’d love for you to stop by during farm working hours, 8am-6pm Monday-Friday. You are also welcome to stop by on a Saturday or Sunday, but please email us at farm at dickinson.edu to give us a heads-up. If your group includes more than six people, we also ask that you email us to let us know when you’ll be visiting the farm.
The Dickinson College Farm is a working farm. Parental supervision of children under the age of 13 is required at all times. Children may not move about the farm without appropriate supervision.
