School Registration Form

Students experience Hands-on Learning with Hands-on Fun at Donnell Century Farm. They will experience hands-on farming activities like planting seeds to enhance their understanding of farming and the food they buy at the grocery.

 

Kids will learn about animals and learn basic needs of animals. The students will recall information, answer questions, sort, follow directions, increase listening skills, and apply information learned in the classroom. Kids will ride in a tractor pulled wagon. They will navigate a trail or maze to read a story or answer questions. Playing safety is important. Students will follow safety rules while playing on the many activities in Possum Holler.

 

Picnic tables are provided under the pavilion. Bring your picnic lunch or order from our grill when available. Restrooms are modern and clean located near Calf-A Concessions.

Springtime on The Farm

Yum! Yum! Hamburger Fun! 

Mix Hands-on Learning with Hands-on Fun in Spring Creek TN just 8 miles off I-40 near Jackson, TN at Donnell Century Farm Adventure. Have you ever seen a hamburger plant? Students will tour the Hamburger Farm and see and feel vegetables needed to build the All-American Burger. Students will see wheat ground for buns. They will gather an egg for mayonnaise, pick a potato for French fries, pick a tomato and learn about cucumber pickles and green onions. Who knows maybe they will dress their burger all the way next time!

 

Our certified teacher captivates with hands-on learning plant cycles, germination, weather patterns, and photosynthesis. Kids will make and taste butter and milk a wooden “cow” in the Dairy Barn. They will understand the basic needs of farm animals while petting, feeding and observing them in their habitat. Kids will take a wagon ride to the JellyBean the Unbreakable Egg storybook nature trail and learn the importance of kindness and team work. Possum Holler Playground provides heart pumping exercise on the huge Jumping Pillow, Mega Slide, Rat Rollers, Duck Races, Zip lines, corn boxes and more. Students have so much fun in our interactive areas and farm attractions they do not realize they are learning. Donnell Century Farm Adventure is the premier farm field trip where students mix hands-on learning with hands-on fun.

 

2019 Spring Field Trip

Offering educational field trips to pre-school and elementary age students is a priority for us at Donnell Farm.  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 are 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! Our kiddie corn maze is 12 storybook pages about Spookley and is hard to get lost but easy to have fun.
