School Field Trips at BRC Ranch

Put down the Screen and Get Outside!

Young minds crave hands on interactions and outdoor experiences. But, they also enjoy wide open spaces, fresh air, and time to explore. That's what you'll find - and more - when you book a school field trip to BRC Ranch. Our trips are very hands on and based on letting students learn more about agriculture and ranching. Our most popular age group is preschool, pre-k, and elementary school students.

Available All Year Long!

We can accommodate school field trips and home school field trips any time of the year, but spring and fall are our most popular times due to the favorable weather conditions. Summer is also a great time for pre-school day trips.

Our field trips can be customized to accommodate any specific needs or classes. Here is what you can expect:

  • Admission to BRC Ranch
  • Guided tour of the BRC Show Barn where students will see Brahman cattle, feeding, petting, brushing, and more. 

  • Students learn about ranch dogs and how they protect and work the cattle.

  • Unlimited personal photo opportunities

  • Access to 2 acre fenced in space for kickball, picnics, or other relaxation / dining areas. 

  • Petting of the cattle

  • Optional hayride upgrade

  • Optional lunch picnic available on the ranch (students can bring in outside food and beverages). No food is provided.

  • Upgrades available for souvenir gifts including our custom  Brahman animals, caps, t-shirts or more. These can be pre-purchased and given away on the field trips

Admission for school groups are $10 per student/parents/chaperones. Teachers, teachers aides and bus drivers are free. A minimum of 15 students is required. Homeschool groups get one free teacher admission for every 15 paid participants.

How many groups will be there at one time?
We only book one group per day to allow each school to have the most personalized experience.
Will you have a tour guide?
Yes. Our school field trips include one private tour guide who will give a brief talk. This talk can be adapted to the age group of each class. For example, a pre-school group may want a very basic tour, but a high school science class may want a more in-depth presentation. We can accommodate all age levels. The tour guide will be available for up to 30 minutes to provide tours and answer questions.

Can we eat lunch at the ranch?

Yes, although you are required to bring your own blankets for picnics, or lawn chairs. You are also welcome to sit on the grass. We can setup hay bales for a service fee of $5 per person.
Do you have souvenirs?
Yes! We have a lot of ranch souvenirs available through our Online Store and we have a brick and mortar store in Wharton, Texas called The Ranch Downtown.
Can we schedule a lunch at your store?
Yes! Our brick and mortar store The Ranch Downtown is located in Wharton, Texas, slightly off the square. This has a private event space that can house 35 people. Field trips can also reserve this room for lunch.
Is the ranch will chair accessible?
Most of the ranch is wheelchair accessible. The gravel parking lot is wheelchair accessible and the outdoor grassy areas are fine for most wheelchairs. The inside of the barn is a loose dirt bedding which may be more difficult. If you have aides to assist with lifting, students may be transferred from their chair onto a ranch ATV for a guided tour when possible.
