Field Trips

A key part of our mission at Rader Family Farms is to educate while we entertain. We live in a day and age when many children think milk comes from refrigerators and vegetables are grown at Jewel/Osco. Rader Family Farms has been a working farm for over 100 years on the very land we use today.

When school children visit us, we want them to have fun running through the corn maze, picking out pumpkins and enjoying all the activities, but our greatest hope is that they will leave with a better understanding of agriculture and an appreciation for our Illinois farming heritage.
