We host Farm Field Trips!

We know the importance of agriculture to our community — it’s our heritage! We’ve been farming for 4 generations in Nueces and San Patricio Counties, Texas. Klepac Farms itself was established in 1981. (Read more about our history …) It is our good fortune to be able to share our working knowledge of farming with students of all ages. School field trips to the Rockin’ K Maze are educational, as well as memorable — for students, teachers and chaperones alike.
