Connecting Your Visit With an Orchard Walk:
Specifically designed to the level of your group's age, this is a great introduction to where apples are grown, the seasons of the year, how an apple gets its food and how apples taste (an apple and a drink of cider are included). The orchard is a very short walk from the Fest area.

Added cost: $2.00 per person
Added length of stay: one half hour

Recommended age: While the Fest is geared toward 2 – 5 year old preschoolers and elementary children, the orchard walk is best suited for 4's and 5's.
