Field Trip Groups



Each year, thousands of children from the Metro Detroit area visit our farm with their schools, homeschool groups, "Moms of Preschoolers" groups, and more. Field trips at Real Life farm are full of adventure and new experiences for kids of all ages.

Farm field trips may be scheduled for the months of October, April, May and the first few weeks of June. 

For reservations please email Farmer Aaron at

We begin taking reservations on April 1st for the following Spring. 

Field trips begin at 10:00am and are finished by 2:00pm, Monday through Friday.

Both car and bus parking are available.

A Real Life Farm Field Trip includes:

  1. A tractor-drawn hayride! Take a ride in our wagons through the woods of our property. In case of rain, the wagons will be covered.

  2. Horseback riding! A horseback ride for the children inside the corral. Adults will be asked to help lead the horses around the corral.

  3. Animal Care! An animal show with Farmer Aaron inside the barn. Hands-on activities include: Bottle feeding and hand feeding the animals, milking the cow, and butter-making! There are lots of chores to be done at the farm! 

  4. Baby Animal Station! Up in the loft of the barn you will get the chance to learn about baby chicks, ducks, bunnies and kittens. Children will get the opportunity to hold the babies under careful adult supervision. 


An outdoor or sheltered picnic area is provided for bag lunches, or you may eat in our heated, three-story Big Red Barn. NOTE: There is no food available to purchase on the farm property, please bring a bag lunch and water for everyone in your party. 

In Case of Rain:

School visits continue in most conditions. In case of rain, horseback riding will be moved to a sheltered area, and the hay wagons will be covered to keep our guests comfortable. Lunches can be eaten inside the Big Red Barn.
