Done for the 2023 Season

Need a fun activity for the kids on a bright summer day? 

Bring them to Weaver’s Orchard for Read ‘n’ Pick Story Time in the fresh air and sunshine! This is an interactive activity where children hear a fruit-themed story and take a hayride to go pick a container of fruit in the orchard.

Each child and adult will be able to pick a container of fruit! This event is for preschoolers, kindergarteners and elementary school children.


The cost per attendee (both adults and children ages 2 and up) of $9.25 includes an engaging story time, a hayride to the field and back and a container of fruit (which you pick) per attendee valued at $5+


Starting Monday, June 5th, 2023! Every Monday and Wednesday at 9:00, 10:00 and 11:00 June 5th through August 30th.
