FUN and LEARNING TOGETHER at the FARM
JOHNSON’S LOCUST HALL FARM in Springfield Township,
Welcome to our Historic Preserved Farm!

Spring Field Trips 

Spring-time on the farm is one of our favorite times of the year!  The air is crisp and refreshing, flowers are in bloom, the wildlife is active and some the first crops of year become readily available for harvest.  By May 15th here on the farm we will have strawberries, snap peas, radishes, and spinach!  Get your farmer hands ready for picking and minds ready for learning!  Our very own farmers will take you on a unforgettable tour.

Radish Picking Farm Tour Hayride – April 29 to June 12

The spring season kicks off our year with our Farm School Hayride. This trip was developed to teach children how plants grow, how to care for them and how to appreciate farming. This farm lesson is conducted in one of our historic barns with a variety of seeds the children can plant. Each child plants 4 seeds and learns how to care for them at home. We love to see future farmers at work! This trip also includes a Farm tour and explanation of what is going on at the farm in the spring.
