Tours

We offer orchard tours for school field trips and adult groups.
Tours are flexible and can be customized for your group. They usually start with an informational talk concerning apple nutrition, how the apples are grown and general information concerning the orchard. Groups are taken on a wagon ride through the orchard in our new super-duper tour wagon. Sometimes games are played. Children can be given an apple, mini-pumpkin, donut, etc. and will be charged accordingly.

Please call us at 815/332-9696 to schedule your tour. We’re trying to come up with some MORE FUNNER ideas for the tours in 2016. Any suggestions? Remember tours may be customized to each age group – we try to accommodate.
