An Educational Experience
Age appropriate tours for elementary students with information and activities aligned with the North Carolina Standard Course of Study.
Wayne and Riely Woosley each have a lifetime of teaching experience spanning all ages of learners. Until their recent retirement, class fieldtrips to the farm were favorite experiences of their students.

Tours are hands-on experiences primarily for elementary students. Other special tours can be arranged. The 18th Century living history experiences can be combined with the activities below or brought to your school.
