Farm Field Days

About Farm Field Days
Fourth grade students rotate through seven barns, with each barn highlighting aspects of life on the farm using hands-on lessons that meet VA SOL Standards.

We focus on:

  • Soil

  • Trees

  • Pollination

  • Water quality

  • Regions of VA 

  • Farm animals

Farm Field Days is a fun and engaging hands-on approach to teaching students about the agricultural world around them, and opening their eyes to the importance of protecting our natural resources.

How to Participate:

  1. In May, we send out registration opportunities to all the Principals in Prince William County and Manassas City. Start asking your Principal about the registration email!

  2. Apply by the deadline listed on the registration email.

  3. Wait to see if your school is selected by late May!

  4. Participate in Farm Field Days the following October (usually the second Wednesday and Thursday).
