By this time in the school year, everyone is ready for a break: a break from the cold, dreary weather, a break from being cooped up inside, and a break from the everyday routine.
Good news! Bush-N-Vine Farm is offering field trips this spring!
Here’s what you can expect:
*Our field trips are best suited for students in grades Kindergarten—3rd grade.
