We provide a guided farm tour with information about animals geared toward the specific age level of the students. Students will learn about horses, cows, sheep, goats, chickens, ducks and more. All students are encouraged to have first-hand experience by touching the animals. Plus they will hand feed the goats, sheep, chickens, rabbits, ducks, or rabbits and gather eggs.

This field trip to Crystal Creek Ranch will enable your students to interact with small animals. Once your guide shares interesting age appropriate information about the animals several students are encouraged to hold the animals. Facts will be matched to Strand 3 & 4 Changes in Ecosystems and Interactions of Organisms with their Environments of MO Standards if requested.

During the Spring Field Trip Season we feature farm “babies” born through-out April-May. You’ll see lambs, kid goats, bunnies, kittens, ducklings, chicks, and more.
Ozark Farming history may be included with corn shelling, rope makes, farm tools, and more.

A tractor pulled hay ride on the Ranch is included as part of your field trip.

The Barnyard Adventures area includes the feed sack slide, hay mountain, tractor tire swings and climbing area and pedal karts.

Extend your stay by bringing a sack lunch to picnic in the old-time farm and home tools museum. Refreshments and kid friendly items are available at our farm store.

You might also consider combining your trip at Crystal Creek Ranch with a visit to historic Alley Spring & Roller Mill, only 2 miles away on the Jacks Fork River.
