Farming & Homesteading Field Trip

Gose Platz Grid

Gose Platz (goh-suh-plaht-ss ~ "Gose Place") is our homestead. It includes15 acres of thick forest, farm land, and a pond. We have enjoyed learning to homestead, grow, and build, and have a desire to share what we’re learning with other families. Our growing herds and flocks of goats, chickens, geese, honey bees, and chicks keep us hopping as we continue to discover the best way (and not so great ways) to tend to the land the Lord has blessed us with.

Listed above are the dates for our current 2017 field trips. Each Field trip is $6/person, with a $30 per family cap.

You may sign up for a field trip date as long as the Paypal link is active. (If it’s full, the link will not be "click-able.")

Our family hobby farm, Gose Platz is located in Milano, Texas. You will be directed to specific directions upon payment. No refunds are available, so be sure your dates are open to you. If sickness keeps you from attending on your field trip date, please let us know that morning, and we’ll put you on a future field trip wait-list.


All field trip events begin at 10:00 am and end at 2:30 pm. You are welcome to bring a picnic blanket and lunch, and eat near the fire pit after the field trip, and we’ll have some snacks and drinks available for purchase, to add to your enjoyment. We have three stations set up for your children’s enjoyment and learning. We feature chicks, eggs, hatching, and chickens. Our family enjoys animals of all kinds, so you may see more than we have listed here!

$1 purchases a feed cup that is permissible to feed to any of the farm animals or wildlife.


Here are the current Learning Stations that your group will visit (we open different stations on different weekends) Your students will receive a handy ring and a card for each station they attend and enjoy, so they can build a booklet/souvenir by which to remember their visit.

The fine print: The Gose Platz Property is personal private property. You’ll be signing a waiver when you purchase your field trip tickets via paypal. If your children do not respond to the safety rules, we’ll have to ask them to be escorted off the premises. There are poisonous plants, snakes, and dangerous obstacles on the property; not to mention bees, wildlife, and farm machinery. It is paramount that all children under your care on the property respond to the safety rules laid out in the Paypal ticket purchase.
