Saturday Wagon Tours

Saturday Wagon Tours

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.
