Apple Ridge Orchards

 
Apple Ridge Orchards offers student, scout, and homeschool groups of all ages a real life farm experience! Groups will pick from over 20 varieties of apples (specializing in dwarf trees so apples are easily reached) and/or select a pumpkin from our decorated patch. On the farm, groups will explore our breathtaking scenery, ride a tractor-pulled hay wagon, and more. Don’t forget to visit our friendly farm animals, which include ducks, goats, and llamas. Honey, homemade mixes, apple butter, fresh preserves, and other treats are available at the farm market for purchase. See you on the farm!
