On any given morning at Cornbelly's, you'll see the sights and hear the sounds of children laughing, learning and playing. Offering educational field trips to pre-school and elementary age students has long been a priority for us at Cornbelly's. Having grown up on farms, we believe it's important that the heritage and dynamics of agriculture is something that all children have the chance to be exposed to. It just so happens that we're able to help accomplish that goal in a fun and unique way. We invite you to bring your students to come get lost in our classroom in the corn!
When Are Field Trips?
Field trips are available for elementary and pre-school age groups October 1-30 on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9 am to 3 pm, during private hours when Cornbelly's is closed to the public. This year's Homeschooling Day is October 9 and home schools are encouraged to schedule on that date. Reservations are required.
What's Included In a Field Trip?
Online curriculum materials for you to share with your students either before or after a visit to our farm.
An "Egg in the Classroom" singing chicken presentation and an animal band singing show
A brief video presentation about corn and the maze
A trip through the corn maze with an educational passport
A hayride around the maze
A visit with our racing pigs (race takes place at 11:30 each day)
A turn on the Jumbo Jumper for each student
A Kernel Cornbelly bookmark for each student to take home
A voucher for a free return visit to Cornbelly's for each student (with a paid adult)
A small pumpkin for each student while supplies last.
To keep our field trip rates as low as possible and the focus on education, we have a smaller staff during field trips and many of the Cornbelly activities are not open or included.

Hands-on learning experiences are always best when students have been prepared for what they are about to encounter and are able to then discuss what they learned afterwards. We are pleased to offer our Classroom in the Corn learning series to make your field trip more exciting and memorable ... as well as a better learning experience. These Teacher Resource Guides are broken into separate grade ranges and each include: activity goals, National Curriculum Standards, preparation required, materials needed, worksheets, and step-by-step instructions.
