Meadow Ledge Farms

Enjoy a beautiful New England autumn day on a group tour at Meadow Ledge Farms. Tours start with a discussion on the flavor of the day, before a tractor ride out to the orchards! There, a picker will tell the group how to pick apples. Students and scouts will each receive a half-peck bag to pick their own apples, then will head back to view the observation hive, see a cider-making demonstration, and even get a taste of some delicious pasteurized cider! More advanced tours are available for older groups, such as culinary students or special interest clubs.
