Storytime: Our Summer Read ‘n’ Pick Storytime

Story time

Looking for things to do with the kids on a summer day? Bring preschoolers, kindergarteners and elementary school children to Weaver’s Orchard for Read ‘n’ Pick Storytime, an interactive summer kids’ activity where children hear a fruit-themed story and then pick a container of fruit in the orchard.


Preschool to eight years old. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

$6 per child (includes a container of pick-your-own fruit; $5 per child if you are paying for two or more children). Purchase Tickets at one of our store registers.

Some activities and locations are not easily accessible by strollers. Stroller parking will be provided at our barn prior to departing on the hayrides.


Mondays and Wednesdays at 9:30 AM, 10:30 AM, & 11:30 AM   *Please arrive early to register and pay as sessions start promptly.
