What Parents Are Saying


It was so nice and clean, and entertaining for all of the kids, and I am sure they will remember this all of their life. Everyone on staff at Guffey Acres were so child friendly and seemed like they were having fun along with the visitors. And all of the kids were sooo excited about their pumpkins. Again, congratulations on a job well done!
Sincerely,
Rebecca Bedoy

We had a blast! I was a parent chaperone and learned something new at almost every station. You are doing a great service to agriculture and the education of our youth. For that alone I say THANK YOU!! However, my daughter said...I had fun playing and learning!...Yep, that says it all! When kids have fun learning that's when it is really FANTASTIC!! Thank you again for your time, dedication, and passion for this project.
God Bless You,

BONUS


We believe in sharing experiences with the whole family. That's why we give each student field trip participant a FREE ADMISSION WITH A PAYING ADULT TICKET to return to Guffey Acres during regular hours. This gives the kiddos an opportunity to share what they've learned during the field trip (and have a little farm fun with the family).
