We invite preschools, daycares, school age children, scouts, adult organizations, and corporate team builders to see first hand how apples are grown and learn about farm life. Learn how apples get from our beautiful apple orchard to your kitchen.

We are pleased to welcome you to the 2022 season at Stribling Orchard. In an attempt to keep things fresh and working well for those of you who visit, we are constantly trying to improve our tours.

Tours are available Wednesday through Friday.

This year we will begin the tour by gathering for a short talk, approximately 20 minutes on growing apples. We will share information on apple trees through the seasons, life on the farm long ago versus today, and interesting facts about apples. Then we will send you out into the orchard to fill your bags. The animals are looking forward to all those hellos again this year. Parents and chaperones will have opportunities for some shopping.

When scheduling a tour, please let us know how many chaperones/parents to expect and whether your group is arriving by bus or car. This helps us prepare better for your visit!

The cost of the tour is $10 per student - this includes the tour and a 1/4 peck bag of apples that the students can pick themselves. Please note that Cider is not available until mid September and Pumpkins until late September. Please contact us with any questions.
