Educational Events: On-Farm School Tours and Field Trips
Weaver’s Orchard offers many educational events. We encourage field trips and school tours on our farm. We know the value of teaching the next generation about agriculture. After all, we are a fourth-generation farm! We want children from preschool through elementary school to know that eating locally grown fruits and vegetables is healthy and delicious!
During the fall, our tours focus on the apple harvest. These ninety minute tours will show your class the apple trees, cider press and farm market.
In the springtime, our ninety minute “young farmer” tours focus on planting and bees.
Request an experienced, enthusiastic speaker from Weaver’s Orchard to come teach your students about agriculture and nutrition, lead fruit- and vegetable-inspired games and show an engaging video about our farm!
Find resources for creating your own agricultural lesson plans!
