Course Descriptions: 

Wild West: This is a Beginners Level Course. Take a trail that gets the beginning off-roader comfortable off the asphalt. Its full of twists and turns and you might even encounter some ornery cowboys that aren't happy you're invading their town!

Cow Pasture: This ain't no ordinary cow pasture! Ol' Billy the Bull has been on the loose snortin' and rootin' up everything! This is a Stock Course that even if you haven't had a chance to fancy up or jack up your Jeep you can still have fun in the Cow Pasture. Looks like that ol' Bull has dug and pushed stuff up all over that pasture for obstacles!

Skunk Ape: The Stock Course that makes you wonder if you should be more concerned about obstacles or what could be watching you... or after you! Legend has it that Florida's own Bigfoot, Sasquatch if you will, or as we Floridians call it "The Skunk Ape" has been spotted on this very trail! So watch out for Bigfoot!

Junkyard: Are you ready to step things up a notch on the Moderate course? Junkyard Jack has been piling up stuff everywhere. So much so that you'll need special equipment on your Jeep to take on the Moderate course. Sorry, not stock Jeeps on this course, it's for your own good!

ShowTime: Are you ready to make a statement? It's ShowTime as you'll be front and center in our biggest viewing area challenging the biggest obstacles showing what your Jeep is made of!

Soggy Bottom: It's time to get muddy! Some say the best part of the Mud pit is getting stuck!

Kirby Family Farm is open year around offering its outreach programs and educational experiences. Like many other educational facilities and museums, periodically during the year the organization invites supporters to come out for themed events as our way to say Thank you, educate, and raise awareness about the programs and mission of Kirby Family Farm.

We take the opportunity of these themed events one step further and use them as a teaching and practice tool that enables the teens and young people we work with to interact with strangers in supervised settings. They help the youth to utilize and share their knowledge of our exhibits. We witness the results greatly help to develop life skills that will benefit them in the workforce and daily communication with others in common society settings.

The youth and all the volunteers are passionate and dedicated to offering an experience you can remember!

These events benefit the programs and development of Kirby Family Farm. Kirby Family Farm is a 501c3 educational facility working with at-risk and special needs children. Last year thousands children visited the farm through various programs and events at no cost, thanks in part to great folks like you who believe in the mission of Kirby Family Farm. So come out in support with your family and having a great time!

 

All monies received are collected as a requested donation supporting the cost and development of the Kirby Family Farm and its programs for education and at-risk children in whole as well as each individual activity.
