Educational Tours & Jam/Jelly Making Classes



Tours:  1 1/2 hour tours divided into 10 minute stations/topics tailored to the age range or type of group. We will taste jelly and fresh or frozen berries (depending on the time of year) at the end.

Topics will vary a little with the time of year and what is going on at the farm, but basically the berries, the bees, and the bugs (good and bad) will always be topics. Pruning, picking, planting, irrigation, food safety regulations and issues, the high tunnel, and equipment are all possible topics. Please let us know if your group has a particular interest.

Pricing:
Groups : $4 / person
Families $10 / family, 4 family minimum
Schools:  $4 / person, supervising adults and teachers no charge

Price:  $75 / 1 person to make 1 batch of jam and one batch of jelly.  Additional family members, $15 each.  (For example:  One mother and one daughter together, make 1 batch of jam and 1 batch of jelly for $90.  The additional $15 does not cover a second batch.  One mother and 2 kids making one batch of jam and one batch of jelly would be $105.)
