Adult / Senior Citizen Tours
Even adults leave our farm after a tour and can honestly say they’ve learned a lot!
Following the same general path as our school tours, our adult tours just take a much more in-depth look at what it means to be a fruit grower in the 21st century. Starting in our bee room, our adult tour participants get a close look at how the agriculture industry has changed over the years. It’s also good to review most of the basics – we’ve found that many adults don’t know how bees communicate with each other! See our working beehives up close and learn how we use different species of bees on our farm to do different kinds of pollination. Tour-goers will also learn about how we use Integrated Pest Management (IPM) on our farm to grow safe and healthy fruits and vegetables without harming the environment around us.
Adults will explore challenges facing the industry, like immigration, differences between conventional growing and organic growing, ecological footprints and the economy, and much more. But don’t worry – we won’t bore you! Adults get to tour the farm on our handicap-accessible wagon ride too, and you also get to do some apple-picking yourselves!
Cider and apple cider donuts are yours too. Shopping in our market is welcome and further exploration in our educational bee room is encouraged!
Have a group that wants to stay on their bus? No problem! We have a second route that stays on the back roads surrounding our farm – perfect for bus rides. See many of the same things, plus a few different ones not seen from our wagon route!
