2020 Field Trips at Highland Orchards
Our Mission with all of our tours
We recognize that only 2% of the population is involved in farming and that most people have lost their agricultural roots. We want as many people as possible exposed to where their food comes from. 

Weekdays groups of 10 participants or more can enjoy one of our Field Trip options. Tours are tailored for groups of all ages. A Highland Orchards tour guide will lead your group on one of our tours!

Tour Info below.
