The field trips at Colon Orchards offer a rich farming experience for kids of all ages.
Kids are taken for a walk through the orchard where they learn about the cycles of apple trees, irrigation, and how apples grow. We also teach kids about "good" bugs and "bad" bugs and other animals that make the orchard their home. Each child will get to pick an apple from a tree, (crop depending), and can enjoy their apple immediately or save it for snack time. Then we give them ample time to "get lost" in our one of a kind corn maze to burn some energy off. Then we set the kids down for a sample of our freshly made 100% pure apple cider before we take them to the pumpkin patch to pick their perfect pumpkin to take home.
We do hayrides and other activities depending on the weekend.
