Fall school tour announcement ....

Limited to September and October Only

Goold Orchards, Castleton, NY invites pre-school, daycare, and elementary school age children to see first hand how apples are harvested from the trees. Learn how apples get from our beautiful apple orchard to the supermarket.

We offer three different grade / age specific tours:                              

The tour cost per child, includes the tour, apple picking (5 to 6 apples in provided bag), and a snack of cider and an apple cider donut.

Preschool & Kindergarten: Sensory based tour with fun "hands on" activities! (approx. 20 min.)

Grades 1 & 2 : Follow the apple from the tree to the supermarket. (approx. 30 min.)

Grades 3 & up: Learn more specifically about an apple orchard as a farm based business. (approx. 30 min.)

The apple picking and snack take approximately an additional 30 to 60 minutes depending on the group size and age.

Groups may wish to "pick only" apples and / or pumpkins, however, the per child cost will include the cider and donut snack.

"KIDS CORNER": Inexpensive Items: It is helpful to our staff to know if the students will have additional spending money. (approx. 30 min.)

Please call (518) 732-7317 between 9:30 am - 3:00 pm to book your tour or pick your own (PYO) outing.
