 Teachers & Principles

Welcome to our Class Trip information page.  

At Cheesequake Farms we are not just another hay ride with pumpkin picking or scary characters. Our program is educational AND fun. Our Tour Guides are present or retired teachers, sport coaches and parents themselves! They take pride in what they teach and how each section of our tour is presented. We hope that if you have visited with your class or group in the past - that you will give a call and schedule for this October.  If you are checking  our website for the first time and are still trying to decide where to go - then I truly hope you give us a try.  I look forward to seeing all of you at Harvest Time.
