Group Tour Overview
A group tour typically takes 1.5 hours for the guided part of the tour, depending on the size of the group. You should allow extra time for playtime and for lunchtime. We try to schedule groups so that you have ample opportunity to play and time to enjoy the picnic area. Depending on the time of your tour, your playtime and/or lunchtime might occur before your tour. That can be discussed at the time your tour is scheduled.
Our 2020 Spring Group Tours will focus on our Lunchbox Garden Program! Visit Lunchbox Garden for full information about our 2020 Spring group tours, perfect for field trips or merit days for all ages and all groups.

At Christian Way Farm, we don’t just grow food, we grow stories. We will talk about the history of our theme food and the ingredients that farmers grow for that food. As part of the story, we look for lessons in the garden that encourage us to make positive choices in our lives.
We will take you into the garden and let you helpus plant seeds or plants according to the garden schedule.
We will go to the garden and either plant a late crop or begin harvesting the crops planted by our earlier visitors.
Travel around the farm as we visit farm animals at another barn.
Feeding The Animals
Help feed and pet the animals. We will provide grain for the animals to eat and often times a bottle to feed a baby calf. Also, don’t forget to come and see the new additions we have to the Christian Way Farm family!
Plant Your Own Seeds
We will help each person plant seeds (usually pumpkin or sunflower seeds) in a small container to grow in their backyard.
Picnic areas are available for your use. Visitors may bring their own food or purchase food from the Christian Way Cafe. Sodas, bottled water, lemonade and snack food are available for purchase.
No trip to Christian Way Farm is complete without playtime—corn trucks, lawnmower train, hay castle (fall only), tricycle track, giant Jenga and giant Scrabble, Gaga ball, a full playground, and plenty of open space for free play – is something you can expect anytime you visit us in Hopkinsville. The corn truck will be available for children to play in like a giant sandbox. We encourage removing shoes as one steps into the corn box or your shoes will be full of corn!
There are ample areas for playing ball or other games teachers may want to do to encourage expending energy. We keep a supply of balls available for our visitors’ use. The tricycle track will be available as well as a small swing set for our youngest visitors.
