Fall School Tours

School Tours and Field Trips On the Farm

Abigail Kerner

Our fall tours focus on the apple harvest. These one-hour tours will show your class the apple trees, cider press and farm market.

Fall Elementary School Tours

Your elementary school class will:

  • Hike into the orchard
  • Discover how apples form and grow
  • Learn about caring for apple trees
  • Pick their own apples (one per student) to take home
  • Visit the packing house
  • Walk into our cold storage area
  • Watch the apple sorting process that prepares fruit for marketing
  • Observe the commercial cider press
  • End the tour with a snack of fresh apple cider and pretzels

Fall Johnny Appleseed Preschool Tour

The Johnny Appleseed Preschool Tour is designed especially for engaging the five senses of your preschoolers:

  • In the orchard, we use our eyes to see the colors of apples
  • When we pick an apple, we feel the softness of an apple bud and the firmness of the apple
  • As we walk through the grounds, we listen to the sounds of the lively farm
  • In the cold storage area, we smell the wonderful aroma of apples
  • In our old barn, we participate in making cider the old-fashioned way… just like in Johnny Appleseed’s day!
  • At the end of the tour, we taste a snack of fresh apple cider and pretzels.

Tour Price & Payment (Spring, Summer & Fall)

Each group must meet a $100 minimum for the Combo Package, and a $75 minimum for all other options.  Full amount must be paid before the tour by tour coordinator.
