When your tour group arrives you will be greeted and accompanied to our outdoor “theatre” where an experienced guide will give an entertaining and informative presentation designed specifically for your age group. Students will learn a brief history of the orchard and what it takes to grow apple trees. They will also learn how to properly pick an apple and discuss the variety of foods apples can be used to make. Afterwards, the children will board our tractor-pulled hay wagon for a tour of the orchard. The tractor will travel to the top of the hill for snack time (specific snack choice depends on what tour is chosen). Now it is “parent time” and visitors will have an opportunity to shop in the apple barn for homemade goodies, aromatic candles and, of course, apples.
The group will take a breif stroll down to the lower orchard play area where there are modern restrooms, picnic tables, a petting barn, a corn crib with giant slide, a large sand box, a giant wooden train and a hay mountain.
This will be a memorable field trip for your child. A non-refundable $50.00 deposit is required to reserve your school tour. This deposit can be paid by credit card or check and will be applied towards your final bill. No matter the weather, tours will go on, so please dress for the weather and plan to wear appropriate clothing for the day.
