Farm Tours & Field Trips

Connecting Students to Agriculture — On the Farm! 

Farming is a business, but it’s also a way of life that affects all of us at home and within our communities. Taking your classroom to a farm gives your students a firsthand glimpse into our province’s food suppliers and what it means to be a farmer, the multifaceted role a farmer plays as steward of the land, and what’s involved in caring for livestock. It’s also a chance to get up close to some pretty cool machines. Many farms in BC open their gates and barns for tours, and each one offers a unique and fun experience for students.

To find a farm tour or agricultural field trip near you, locate your region on the map, then see the corresponding list of tours and trips in that area. Rates vary where applicable.

A Cautionary Note to All Farm Tour Participants 

Food-borne illness can result from close contact with farm animals. BCAITC does not review or monitor any of the farm tour facilities on this list. It is up to each farm visitor to be aware of the risks associated with visiting a farm and take the necessary precautions. To reduce the risk of any food-borne illness, be sure that all students, teachers, and volunteers wash their hands with either hand sanitizer (or sanitizing hand wipes) or warm water and soap (drying their hands with a clean paper towel) before eating at and leaving the farm.
