Waterman's Family Farm

Field Trips & Farm Tours




Hosting field trips is one of Waterman's Family Farm's favorite things to do. It is our goal to create an informative, hands on experience for our visitors in a uniquely entertaining environment. Many students in our community do not have easy access to a working farm. We are a place where kids can get a healthy dose of dirt on their hands and clean air in their lungs.

We hope to educate our young friends about life on a farm as well as provide them with plenty of fun activities throughout their visit. We would like to build lasting memories and relationships with our participants, strengthening their ties to their community as well as the land.

Visit our Reservations page if you would like to schedule a trip to our farm. Please allow up to 72 hours for a response.  For a Field Trip on Weekends, please call 317-357-2989 to make arrangements.

To enhance your students' learning experience we offer educational booklets geared to 3 different levels.  

 Waterman's Family Farm looks forward to your visit!
