We are prepping for a new year, book early to get your ideal time.

 

At George Hill Orchards, children will learn all about the friends and enemies of the apples trees in our one of a kind Apple Tree Theater where they are the stars of the show! For the littlest farmers, our Tree-mendous maze offers an educational adventure that seeks to discover who Farmer Hill's best orchard friend is - but better be careful to avoid some not so apple-friendly critters along the way! 

Mid-October brings the most vibrant new England colors to the orchard, and with them our cider season! Our interactive cider press program allows students to learn the process of making cider from picking the apples all the way through to the press. Each student ends the day with apples and a pint of cider to take home!
