Woodside Orchards

At Woodside Orchards, student groups can visit for a fun and educational autumn day on the farm. They will receive a tour of the cider mill, and a lesson on how cider is made. They will then learn how honey bees help pollinate apple trees while also making honey, view inactive hives to discover how bees live, and learn the tools of the trade. No trip to a farm would be complete without a relaxing hayride through the farm, before each student and scout gets to pick a quarter-peck of apples.
