Pumpkin Ride

field trips

Fun combined with an Educational Agricultural Experience, Maureen Kercher’s 30 years’ worth of experience in leading school field trips shines through when you experience one of our many trips conducted each fall. She is a seasoned tour guide who knows her stuff and knows how to talk to kids of all ages. She will lead your group with a sense of humor and appreciation of what it takes to run a modern day apple orchard and farm.

Designed for School field trips. Mon-Fri only. Not available on weekends. Bring your own bag for all the goodies you will want to take home! Email Maureen for pricing. maureen.kercher@gmail.com

Apple Picking

Three apples each.

Hay Ride

Over hill over dale. Safe, fun, and a great farm experience (about a 15 min. ride).

1 Really Cool Gourd

Gourds come in all shapes and sizes – in this tour we let everyone loose in our big gourd patch to find their favorite gourd and it is theirs to take home. It is like a big scavenger hunt and the kids just love it. We plant little surprises along the way such as sunflowers and Indian corn.

One Super Cute Apple Sipper Cup

Filled to the brim with Kercher’s fresh, sweet apple cider.

A walk on the Corny Side

A walk through the cornfield with corny jokes and surprises along the way. A delightful scarecrow stands tall to make sure you do not get lost.

For the older kids

Grades 1 and up can watch an educational 20 min. video on just what does it take to grow apples and get them ready for the grocery stores.
