Children of all ages enjoy field trips to Hurst Ranch, where retired teachers, trained
docents and a Hurst Family member help them experience life on a ranch in the early 20th
Each student will have a turn to make butter, squeeze orange juice, and make a craft. Students will experience the crop field, see a hay wagon, visit the General Store, the barn, tools used on the farm, meet Farmer George and his walnuts, meet Cowboy Larry and learn about his tools and job. 4th graders discover gold panning, brands and logo design and Native American history. After a trip to Hurst Ranch, every child has learned a little bit more about farm life in the early 1900s, and a whole lot more about teamwork and responsibility.
The Hurst Ranch is non-profit therefore a $5 charge per student is necessary to cover expenses. It is also necessary to provide a certificate of insurance from the school.
