Embark on an enlightening journey to Becker Farms with your students, clubs, or organizations. Explore the farm's rich history and witness the daily operations of a cherished family-owned working farm. Accompanied by Mindy Becker, the owner, traverses through different aspects of the farm and meets some of our precious farm animals. Don't forget to extend a warm welcome to our furry companions, Gabby & Murphy, who are sure to brighten your day! The tour is designed to meet the Science, Math, Social Studies, and Language Arts standards established by New York State. It is appropriate for all ages, from young children in daycare to high school or college students. Depending on the time of year, visitors can also participate in fruit picking as part of the tour. In the summer months, choose strawberries, raspberries, or blueberries; in the Fall, choose apples or pumpkins (may not be available due to growing conditions). The fruit picked will be determined by the date of the visit. All groups have access to a picnic area where students can also sit and enjoy a packed lunch! Forgot to pack a lunch? Head into Becker Brewing Co. and grab a bite there! For those interested in private group educational tours, we offer a starting rate of $12 per participant to pick a single crop. Please note that the maximum number of participants for a group is 100, and the minimum reservation cost is $144 for 12 participants. The tour typically takes 90 minutes, and we require a 24-hour notice to book your spot. It's important to note that our Educational Picking Tours taking place in April and May will have a planting theme. The first fruit that will be available for picking is Strawberries, which will be ready in mid-June. However, please be aware that picking conditions can be affected by weather and growing conditions.
