Program, Location, or Amenity
We offer guided tours highlighting family farm life at the beginning of the 20th century. Tours can accommodate all group types including: schools, scouts, religious groups, families, special needs, etc. Plan on one hour for your tour.
Through a grant, Wheeler Historic Farm and the Friends of Wheeler Farm worked together to improve our school tours and tour curriculum. This exciting project includes teacher resources for school tour preparation, lesson plans, information on turn-of-the-century agriculture and a timeline of the Wheeler Family.
Make butter, blacksmith demonstration, enjoy a wagon ride, learn about the animals and take a glimpse into old-fashioned farm living.
In addition to the Farm Tour, participants will enter the Historic Farm House main floor, a downstairs tour of the farmhouse museum.
Some schools visit the farm on their own, without a tour guide. If you would like to add a wagon ride to your visit, we recommend make a reservation as wagon rides sell out on busy Spring days.
October Only. In addition to the Farm Tour, this tour will include entrance into the hay maze and a pumpkin.
