2021 School Tour Information

Lynd Fruit Farm has been an education destination providing quality tours to children for over 30 years.  A honeybee observation hive, an interactive powerpoint presentation, and a packing line or Life Of Apple video  are all part of the tour teachers and students have enjoyed for years. The Lil Farmer Tour gives youngsters an opportunity to learn while they ‘harvest’ different Ohio agricultural crops and sell them to the ‘market’.  Pumpkin Tours will be offered, assuming we have a pumpkin planting which at the time of this update is not yet determined.  Tours run Monday-Thursday.

We welcome all classes grades K-3, pre-schools, homeschools, day cares and play groups (age 4-6) of 10 or more children. Registration is required and Bev will respond on a first come, first served basis.
