Field Trips

“Education is the most powerful weapon that you can use to change the world– Nelson Mandela”

Our school tours are filled with lots of fun and education for students of all ages. Our goal is for visitors to learn more about agriculture, history, geography, math  and other subjects, while solving problems and making memories.  Students of all ages enjoy a trip to our educational and scenic farm.

A Special Treat this year!

The River Maze is one of many family farms across North America that will be embracing Spookley and his story with visitors throughout the fall.  “Spookley is an adorable character with a wonderful message,” says Dianne Fetzer, co-owner of The River Maze. “We are delighted to share Spookley with our visitors to raise awareness for National Bullying Prevention Month.”
