** because we don't have APPLES this year, we won't be
able to do field trips for fall 2012, but hope to do them again next year ... **
Every fall Easy Pickin's plays host to school children from around our area.
We invite the classes in and welcome them to our farm. We take a wagon tour around the farm. We stop at the pumpkin patch
to discuss how we grow pumpkins on our farm. The children then get to wander through the pumpkin patch and pick out their
favorite pumpkin to take home. We grow just the right size sugar pumpkins for the kids.
Next it's off
to the orchard to learn how the apples grow. We have fully-dwarfed apple trees that are trained to a four wire trellis.
Even the smallest child can pick his or her own apples from our trees. We teach the children how to pick an apple and allow
them to pick three apples from our trees, whenever possible, to take home.
Our tour ends back where we started and we
refresh the kids with a drink. Groups are encouraged to bring along a snack to enjoy with their drink.
Cost is $6.95/person
with one free for every ten paid. A 15 person minimum is required and we reserve the right to combine smaller groups.
