Each Saturday, tractor drawn wagon rides through the orchard and farm are offered from early September to mid-November (depending on weather). Tours of the orchard begin at 10:30 am each Saturday morning and continue until the last tour leaves around 3:30 pm. Tours begin approximately every 45 minutes. Children 2 and under are free. Children 8 and under must be accompanied by an adult. Tickets can be purchased at the Country Store or U-Pick Center.
The tour leaves the Country Store and travels along Appletree Lane, where apple trees were first planted in 1930. The scenery is spectacular with wide open vistas of the orchard and surrounding South Mountains.
Once the tour reaches its highest point in the orchard the wagon will stop and you’ll learn about the orchard’s history and how apples are grown. Questions are always welcome. Ask the guide for a story or two; he enjoys sharing local stories and our family’s history with orchard guests.
The tour continues through new apple tree plantings, along pastured hill tops, the farm pond, and through shady woods. With so many beautiful sights to see, remember to bring your camera.
The wagon tour is a great way for family members of all ages to experience secluded parts of our orchard and farm. After the wagon ride you may want to pick apples for yourself or pick up a bag in our Country Store.
