The tour is given as a walk-through that takes you around our working farm. Tours last approximately 60 minutes.

Your students will learn about how we as farmers produce the food you eat.

Your students will have the opportunity to create their own pots and plant seeds to take home with them.

Your students will also have the opportunity to feed and observe our chickens.

Extra time can be added if you want your students to bring a brown bag lunch to enjoy inside our orchard picnic area.

Plan on arriving at least 15 minutes before your tour time – it helps us keep the herd together!
