FarmSchool Field Trips

White Oak Farm & Education Center offers two unique farm and nature-based field trips:  day trips and overnight stays. The visits are designed to help children develop connections between their food, their local ecosystem, and our shared agricultural heritage. Our goal is to serve the students and communities in Jackson and Josephine counties.

We have been leading FarmSchool field trips since 2002, and have hosted over 150 classes at the farm. Day Trips and Overnight Stays are fully-funded by Southern Oregon grants and through our partnership with Rogue Valley Farm 2 School. We work hard to give every student and class an opportunity to come to the Farm without the worry of cost and expense. Our programs fill up fast and space is limited so please contact.

We invite school groups to the farm during the spring and fall seasons:
Spring field trips are available March – May.
Fall field trips are available September – October.

Spring registration opens on November 1st                                                                                 Fall registration opens on June 1st
