ORCHARD TOURS

WE HAVE CANCELLED ALL ORCHARD TOURS THIS YEAR 2012 BECAUSE OF THE LOST OF THE APPLE CROP

We specialize in tours for small groups of preschool and up to 1st grade. The tours last about 1 hour, and we can handle 2 groups of 20 children with adult assistance at one time. Our activity is divided into two parts. Part 1: The orchard tour where they learn about the apple trees, how to pick apples, a visit with our "dinasour" (it is a self propelled hydraulic lift for picking apples), and our apple washer and sorter machine. Part 2: We let them taste some of the apples we grow. We peel the apples in front of them, using the same peeler we use in our bakery.

If we have two groups in the tour we switch them after each part. We charge $3.00 per child, adults are no charge, and the child get to select one apple from the group they tasted. We feel that the apple tasting is an important part of our tour, because it give them a chance to taste apples they might never taste from the store.

Please call for reservation for the tour. We conduct most of our tours in October when we have a good selection of apples to taste.
