Spring Apple Blossom Tour

Spring Tour with Bean Seed Planting

April & May 2022

Take in the breathtaking beauty of over 30,000 fruit trees in bloom and celebrate new life on our farm while learning all about pollinators
(such as bees) and our sustainable growing practices!

Your adventure begins with an interactive and educational lesson about nature, its beauty, and how important it is to us!  We will dive into topics like blossoms, pollination, and learn how bugs (good and bad ones) impact the world around us and how the sun, rain, and snow affect the orchard. Have fun planting a bean seed & learning the importance of roots.

We will then board the Apple Blossom Express Train, take in the sights and sounds of the orchard.  Explore the Farm Park with our farm animals!  

This field trip is perfect for students in preschool through second grade.
