School Field Trips
BUCKELEW FARM will be having its 30th annual Pumpkin Festival the last three weeks of October 2018. We have had an excellent response from teachers, students and parents who have participated in our field trips in the past.
School field trips will be scheduled by appointment only and will be available Monday through Friday, 10/18-10/19, 10/22-10/26, and 10/29-10/31. The cost is $7.00 (includes tax) per person, which includes tractor-drawn wagon rides to and from the pumpkin patch and one pumpkin each (pick the pumpkin of your choice from the pumpkin patch, up to 15 pounds). The price applies to ALL who attend (students, school staff and parent volunteers). A single payment for the entire group is preferred, as it speeds up the registration process. Checks, cash, purchase orders and credit cards are accepted. We anticipate that approximately 1 to 1 ½ hours will be needed for your students to enjoy the event.
The Sand Lot with Toys and King of the Mountain Rope Climb and slide will be open during field trips; teacher supervision required. We have a dining tent for picnics on a space available basis. We also recommend the Three Points Memorial Park, which is located approximately two miles from the BUCKELEW FARM. The park offers restrooms, ramadas, barbecue grills, playground equipment, basketball courts, and grass fields.
BUCKELEW FARM is just 30 minutes from downtown Tucson. From I-19, take Ajo Way (US 86) west for 22 miles and you can’t miss us. (Click here for a map)
