School Tours and Field Trips On the Farm
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.
