Civil War Reenactment Day Sept. 30th
On the Civil War Reenactment Day the skirmish will take place around 12:15 pm in order for younger kids wanting to visit the pumpkin patch that morning to have time to enjoy all the activities before the loud noises take place after lunch. This day is perfect for Middle – High school students that are studying American History. The prices for this day will be the same as below. The only difference being the older children (11 & up) will not get a pumpkin but will instead get to watch the civil war reenactment (a pie pumpkin can be added for $1.95 additional). They will also get to take the hayride and visit the corn maize and the civil war encampments to see how the soldiers would have lived back then during the war. They can also catch one of the pig race shows, visit the petting zoo and eat lunch at the farm. They will probably be too big to enjoy the train ride, chicken show and the playground but there is still a lot of fun for them to have. Please contact us if you have any more questions.
Hands-on learning experiences are always best when students have been prepared for what they are about to encounter and are able to then discuss what they learned afterwards. We are pleased to offer the Classroom in the Corn learning series to make your field trip more exciting and memorable … as well as a better learning experience.
These Teacher Resource Guides are broken into separate grade ranges and each include: activity goals, National Curriculum Standards, preparation required, materials needed, worksheets, and step-by-step instructions. Once you book your field trip with Cedar Hill Farm this fall we will email you a link and password to Classroom in the Corn, included in your confirmation email.
Groups that have made Reservations such as: Day Cares, Nursing Homes, Scout Groups, Kids Camps, Youth Groups, Church Groups and Home School groups may be eligible for the school group rates but are subject to 7% MS sales tax.
All tax exempt groups must bring a copy of their sales tax exempt form upon check in if they do not already have one on file with us, we only need one per school on file. Any unscheduled group may be charged general admission prices.

In order to get the field trip rates, a reservation must be made and all money from students and adult chaperones must be collected and paid as one payment upon arrival through a group leader. Anyone that does not pay through the group leader will be charged the general admission price. We take school check, cash and credit card. All adults, including staff must wear their admission sticker to show that they have checked in and payed. Children will not be given stickers. Field trip rates are not offered on weekends.
Three Hours is the average time needed to complete all the activities including eating lunch on one of our field trips. If you feel you may not have this much time, you can leave off some of the activities in order to cut out time.
In order to ensure that you get the date that you want please book at the beginning of each semester. Also, if you want to avoid the crowds book at the beginning of the week instead of the end and also book further away from major holidays ex. Halloween and Good Friday.
We are working hard to ensure that field trips at Cedar Hill Farm are as educational and fun as they can be. We are making improvements to facilities and reworking our scheduling every season to make your field trip more enjoyable. Any suggestions or comments are much appreciated.
