Brookwood loves to have groups come to the farm and experience farm life! We offer one hour tour visits, as well as work visits that can be appropriate for school/community groups or corporate visits.
We also offer educational visits that are appropriate for children from preschool age through high school.If you are interested in an education visit, please visit the education section on our website.
We are always thrilled when an organization chooses to spend time volunteering with us! Please look through to choose the program that fits your group’s needs best.
All programs include a fee based on how many participants are in your group. We strive to make the farm visits accessible to everyone, so if your school or organization cannot pay our fee, please email firstname.lastname@example.org as fee assistance may be available. All of the contributions help offset the costs of our education programs, so that we can continue to connect as many people as possible to fresh, local produce and the knowledge about how to grow it.
