Duke Farms

Field Trips

Duke Farms provides the opportunity for teachers to lead their students independently through the Farm Barn Orientation Gallery and outdoor habitats.

Here are a few reasons why Duke Farms is the perfect place to bring your class field trip:

  • Interactive, educational exhibits on wildlife ecology, sustainable resources, horticulture and agriculture.
  • Easy access to multiple habitats. Woodland, meadow or wetland areas can all be your field classroom.
  • Miles of trails - 18 to be exact - that are closed to vehicle traffic.
  • No gift shop! Teach your students about sustainable consumption and needs vs. wants.
  • Hillsborough, New Jersey is a short bus ride from many districts, making your trip cost less!

Remember, admission is FREE for self-guided field trips however; we do have capacity limits and require registration in advance. If you have any questions or concerns about bringing your class to Duke Farms, please call or email Kate Reilly, Manager of Education at 908-243-3643 or
