The Group Farm Tour will take you on a tractor ride by the Hayfield, to the mountainous Orchard. Pick your own apples and enjoy a beautiful natural mountain setting on the tour.

You'll visit the Pumpkin Patch (the Pumpkin Patch is open beginning in late Sept. or early Oct.) and Flower Garden, then go back to The Red Apple Barn to enjoy an apple, a cup of cold cider, and an apple cider doughnut! You can also enjoy a picnic on the creek, walk across the covered bridge, and enjoy the playground areas.

We have folks from all ages visit our orchards. Babies pick their first apples and patients from assisted living centers come using their walkers. Other groups bring picnic lunches and have class reunions here. The girl scouts took a tractor ride, picked apples and had a picnic on the creek. Many of the groups come and just sit in the orchard for hours enjoying the peace and quiet and God’s beautiful scenery.
