Additional Information

 

K&S FARMS INC IS A FAMILY OWNED AND OPERATED TREE NURSERY IN HAMILTON COUNTY, INDIANA, RECENTLY OFFERING FIELD EDUCATIONAL FIELD TRIPS AND BIRTHDAY PARTIES FOR SCHOOL AGE CHILDREN.

IN OUR WORLD OF "ELECTRONIC DISTRACTIONS" UNFORTUNATELY MANY OF US HAVE LOST CONNECTION WITH NATURE AND THE WONDERS OF THE OUTDOORS. WE HAVE BEEN INSPIRED BY THE NATIONAL BESTSELLER "LAST CHILD IN THE WOODS, Saving Our Children From Nature Deficit Disorder" to bring children and families back to nature by allowing them to explore our nursery.  

We will provide activities from PROJECT LEARNING TREE and TAKE A CHILD OUTSIDE allowing children to walk through the nursery and complete the activities.  The nursery is manicured with grass walking paths along the rows of trees... there are more than 10,000 trees in sizes ranging grom newly planted "whips" to mature trees ready for harvest or digging.  

There is a picnic area and indoor building for sack lunch which can be brought or provided by us.  Spring and Fall are beautiful seasons to visit the farm.  

We encourage educators to incorporate the importance of trees and the environment into lessons.  The midwest region of the US is experiencing the loss of millions of trees due to recent droughts and the attack of the Emerald Ash Borer.  Tree growers will play an important role in providing new trees to plant in the future.

Please contact us for further information.
