Education

Old River Farms offers educational field trips to schools in New Hanover, Pender, and Onslow counties. We provide students a fun way to learn about the importance of agriculture while simultaneously meeting goals for the North Carolina Common Core and Essential Standards. Veteran educators, Mr. Charlie Baker, and owners Dean and Susan Lanier have designed an exciting program for students in grade levels K – 5. The children cycle through at least 5 Learning Stations designed specifically for each grade level. The Learning Stations for fall include time in the greenhouse, hayrides to the cow pastures, garden, cotton fields or pumpkin patch and group building activities in the barn. Price: $10/student.
