Sietsema Orchards offers school/group tours to those groups who would like to come out and experience the orchard and all that it has to offer. The tour will consist of a hay ride through the orchard which will be informative and fun. We will stop along the tour to explain different things that are done at the orchard: the varieties of trees planted, why trees are planted in rows running north and south, how we trim trees, etc. The students will also have an opportunity to pick one apple to take home. At the conclusion of the tour the students will have an opportunity to enjoy a glass of fresh cider and an apple. During this time the students may ask us any other questions they might have about apple orchards. We can also tailor the tour toward your current curriculum as well.
The tour will last 45-60 minutes. The cost will be $4.00 per student/person, but there is no additional charge for the classroom teacher. Please send us your information using the form below or Call Mandy Sietsema at 616-204-3616.
