We love to show pre-schoolers, scouts and small groups (up to 15 members) how our orchard operates. Any picking during tours or parties is limited to apple varieties available on given dates.

For 2015 we offer weekday orchard tours from Sept. 14 through Oct. 23, weather permitting.  Baking parties can be arranged year-round. For details, please email or call 860-738-2207 and ask for Donna.
