Carrigan Farms

Carrigan Farms is a 5th-generation family farm that offers fun, educational things for groups to see and do. On field trips, groups can explore the apple orchard or the pumpkin patch via hayride, visit the animals at the petting station, enjoy picking fruits or vegetables, and see thousands of bees at work inside the glass-walled beehives. Students and homeschoolers can visit the farm for Fall Harvest Tours in September and October, which focus on a variety of topics related to science and farming.

FUN FACTS

The average American may eat 125 pounds of potatoes each year, but corn is actually America’s number one field crop, providing ingredients for cereals, peanut butter, snack foods and soft drinks. The average person eats 68 quarts of popcorn a year alone! Use a trip to an agricultural farm to find out where our fruits and vegetables come from. Compare organic, pesticide-free, and genetically engineered crops. Research the products made possible by crops grown in the U.S. (shampoos, crayons, and baseball bats all come from agricultural products, for example). Ask your local farm about the benefits of eating local or growing your own garden.
