Gem Mining Company
If your youngster has a favorite collection of polished rocks or is crazy about fossils or sharks, your visit to Hill Creek Farms can include “Gem Mining” at the Gem Mining Company! This interactive experience is meant to be a fun and challenging activity to awaken your child’s curiosity about hidden treasures and the outdoors.
First, you will purchase a bag of sand in which we have planted a variety of beautiful polished stones, shark’s teeth, and more. Each bag is different! Next, take your child to the gem mining sluice, a trough where they will sift through their sand to find hidden treasures. While we don’t promise any precious diamonds, with a little patience every child will find something fascinating to take home.
