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!

Fall Tours

Our fall school tours focus on apples. Your group will learn about an apple’s life cycle and get a back-stage pass to see what happens to an apple once it is ready to be harvested at Weaver’s Orchard.

Spring & Summer Tours

Our spring and summer group tours focus on planting and pollinators. These are perfect field trips for your preschool, kindergarten or elementary school class, homeschool group, scouts, daycare or day camp group. Topics can also be adjusted to accommodate older children or adults.

Fall School Tours

The fall tour experience offers a fun day at our beautiful orchard for your small group, pod, homeschool co-op, class, or family.

Tours will include apple picking and information about growing apples.

Parking is free and available at our tour parking lot. Please email Ashley (Ashley @ WeaversOrchard.com) with your interest, questions, requests, or more information!

We can work with you to customize the perfect package for your group.

Groups that wish to come pick fruit without a tour guide may do so any time the pick-your-own areas are open, provided children are supervised.  If you have a group of 25 or more for pick-your-own, we encourage you to call ahead with when you will be coming.

Spring School Tours

Our spring and summer group tours focus on planting and pollinators. These are perfect field trips for your preschool, kindergarten or elementary school class, homeschool group, scouts, daycare or day camp group. Topics can also be adjusted to accommodate older children or adults. On both spring and summer tours, participants will:

  • Take a guided hayride through the orchard
