Dear Administrators & Teachers of Grades Pre-K, Kind, 1st, 2nd & 3rd
Greetings! We know that planning a worthwhile class trip can be challenging, so why not let us help you to make the most of your class trip experience. We have been proving highly educational field trips for over 25+ years and are proud to have served many schools and students from our Local Communities.
For the 2018/1019 School Year, we will be offering our Fall Tour and Spring Tour. Both Tours are approximately 2 hours. Spend an hour at our County Store and then an hour at our Family Farms. Each location has 3 stations to explore.
The Country Store portion includes a visit to our Fall Harvest Room or our Spring Strawberry Room. Students will participate in an interactive discussion on how we grow, cultivate and promote our fruits. The next station is with our Baker for a scrumptious pie making demonstration using our own fresh apples (Fall Tour) or strawberries (Spring Tour). The last station is in our Snack Room where your group will be offered a snack (cup of apple cider and an old-fashioned apple cider donut) and will learn about apples (Fall Tour) or how our tractor helps us through the seasons (Spring Tour).
Students will enjoy and outdoor experience at our Pumpkin Patch. This tour allows the students to pick their own pumpkin from our sugar pumpkin patch (small pumpkin). Then the students will learn about our corn field & hear “corny” jokes from our farmer. Last the group will take a scenic hayride which travels through our farm and corn field.
The Strawberry Farm will provide students an outdoor experience and they will be able to pick their own strawberries. The group will also take a scenic hayride which travels throughout our farm. Last, the students will be able to learn about honey bees and how they help us to grow our strawberries. They will see bee keeping equipment and learn interesting facts about our honey bees.
Fall Tour Season is the month of October/early Nov and the Spring Tour Season runs from mid-May to mid-June. Monday thru Friday, 10am – 12pm. The entire tour takes approximately 2+ hours. The cost is $10 or $11 per student. For more information, check out our website at www.wemrockorchard.com or call 732-431-2668 and ask for Lisa.
