Fifer Orchards

This family farm is committed to high quality produce and farming practices that preserve a healthy and sustainable environment. A hayride and narrated tour of the farm with knowledgeable staff members can be arranged and lets groups see wildlife, native plants, trees, and crops. Groups can learn about the history of the orchard, the farm’s unique approach to pest management, and how different farming practices like cover crops and reduced tillage help protect the soil. After the tour, have fun picking (depending on the season) strawberries, apples, or pumpkins to bring back to school or camp for healthy snacks.

Farm Lesson Plan

FUN FACTS

The average American may eat 125 pounds of potatoes each year, but corn is actually America’s number one field crop, providing ingredients for cereals, peanut butter, snack foods and soft drinks. The average person eats 68 quarts of popcorn a year alone! Use a trip to an agricultural farm to find out where our fruits and vegetables come from. Compare organic, pesticide-free, and genetically engineered crops. Research the products made possible by crops grown in the U.S. (shampoos, crayons, and baseball bats all come from agricultural products, for example). Ask your local farm about the benefits of eating local or growing your own garden.
