Education Programs

Pomeroy Living History Farm offers several different grade level appropriate field trips in both the spring and fall. We begin taking reservations for our school programs in September. Please contact us for the specific date, and for additional information on our education programs at 360-686-3537, or send us an email.

The fall programs are geared toward pre-school, kindergarten and first grade. They focus on farm in the fall. Students will have the opportunity to take a tractor pulled hayride to the pumpkin patch and down pumpkin lane, where they will see over 100 delightful "pumpkin people." They will also visit the animals, go through the hay bale maze, and have a turn at the pumpkin flume.

The spring programs include a 4-6 grade program, focusing on self-sufficiency and recycling on a pre-electrical farm. Students are given a historical perspective on food growing, food preservation and the tools and crafts involved in a self-sufficient lifestyle. It also demonstrates how early century farm families were, by necessity, efficient recyclers. Students will also participate in a 1920's historically appropriate activity session.

The 2-3 grade spring program focuses on children's work and play on a pre-electrical farm. Students will participate in the chores and play activities expected of primary-age school children. These include domestic activities and barnyard chores including feeding some of the farm animals. Students will also participate in a 1920's historically appropriate activity session.
