The Ohio Pioneer Experience

Education Staff Guided



Live the history of Ohio during the 1800s. Students will learn the story of the Funderbergs, the pioneer family who first settled on what is now Learning Tree Farm. They will get a sense of farm life as they work with our staff at multiple stations. Students will use authentic 19th century tools including corn shellers, wheat grinders, and washtubs. They will also discover Ohio’s Native American influence through the story of the “The Three Sisters” and by grinding corn. As a special treat, students will make their own butter!

Cost: $8 per student and for chaperones. Teacher admission is always complimentary!

Questions can be emailed to our Director of Farm Operations, at [email protected]
