About the event
During the Fall, Morning Glory Orchard hosts thousands of school-aged children for field trips. We provide a once in a lifetime opportunity to see a working apple orchard. The children get both an inside and outside tour. During the outside portion they get to see small baby trees less than a few years old, all the way up to 43 year old trees. We talk about bees and how essential they are in an orchard for pollination. The kids love walking through the orchard and seeing the apples which vary in size and color. Depending on the date of the tour, the children will get to pick an apple themselves--something they won't soon forget! During the inside portion, we show the children how an apple press works, we let them taste fresh cider along with the honey collected from our beehives. There might even be mention of Johnny Appleseed. Afterward, you are welcome to picnic in the designated area and enjoy the beauty of the land.
Our field trip is one hour in length and costs $10 per person. Each paid entry takes a goodie bag home with them. All children, parent chaperones and siblings in attendance are required to pay for admission.
