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.  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 4-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 3 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 1 free for every 10 paid.  
A 15 person minimum is reqested, and we reserve the right to combine smaller groups.
