The wagon will load at the Alumni House backyard. Tours will depart every half-hour.

Climb on board and join the wagon tour as it meanders around the orchards and farm. We ask that an adult accompanies small children. In case of rain, the Harvest Tour will be canceled. Please note: Outdoor activities of these kinds can be hazardous and carry some risk of injury. I mindfully accept the responsibilities of my participation/that of my child.
