Christmas In The Country

Our base tour (which everyone takes) starts with a hayride up our mountain where children learn about the trees and what different types of fruit we grow. They are let off in our orchard where each child gets to pick two apples. We answer any questions they have & then head down to our farm stand and production building. Once there everyone is toured through our storage facility, our bakery, our grading room and our cider room, learning about each as they go along. The tour is changed slightly to adapt to the age of the children..

We have a playground to entertain the kids in-between tour segments if necessary and lunch facilities if you are spending the day.

There are two optional add-ons to enhance your experience. 1. A half peck of apples (approximately 5 lbs.) instead of only two. OR a small pumpkin and gourd. Both of these options have an associated charge.

We operate on a first-come-first-served basis. It is recommended that you book early as we do not over-book our tours. If your group is larger than 55 people, you will be the only group here. This policy gives you extra one-on-one time but causes us to book solid very quickly.

We book Monday - Thursday (Friday's are rain dates) in September & October.
