Bring your class to the orchard, on weekdays, for a fun experience of apple picking. After checking in at the PYO stand in Lot A, you pay here and receive your picking bags - then it's onto the haywagon to the apple orchard you go!
The children will be given a brief talk on how to pick an apple and the growing of the apples. Our apple orchard for the school groups are dwarf apple trees, which only grow to 8 feet tall in full maturity - this is great for the children, everyone can easily reach and pick the apples themselves.
You will pick apples for your own bag and then load back onto the wagon then head up to visit with our friendly farm animals.
Our farm animals include: '3 little pigs', goats, sheep, chickens & roosters and bunnies. Fresh cider is then served to everyone at the picnic tables (cider donuts may be served with the cider, if ordered, at .50 each).
If you have opted for the package with the pumpkins, each child will then choose one from our pre-picked pumpkin selection in the picnic area.
