Dear Teachers and Group Leaders:
We at Pankiewicz Cider Mill would like to invite you and your students
to participate in the 2014 School Tour as we share the pride we have for
our farm with you. Ours is a family owned and operated produce farm, orchard
and cider mill. Here you will be able to enjoy what nature has to offer
in a quiet country setting, and will learn about our orchards on a guided
tour. We also offer a sheltered picnic area, snack bar and country store.
Your guided tour begins in the orchard, proceeds through the storage
and processing rooms, and concludes in the retail store. Your tour guide
will give a lesson in each area. After the tour, students will be treated
to fresh cider and donuts in the picnic area. There will also be time
for questions and answers, as well as learning some "fun" facts
about apples. Each child will also receive a thank-you gift as they leave
You can plan on the tour lasting approximately 45 minutes, with the largest
portion of time being spent in the orchard. Tours are given Thursday or Friday
from September 11th thru October 10th. Advance booking is required,
and cost is $7.00/person. Lunch programs are also available for a nominal
charge. Some classes choose to "brown bag" their lunch and enjoy
it in our picnic area along with their cider and donuts.
Students are asked to dress for the weather .. yes it rains in the orchard!
Sandals do not offer much protection from wet grass. It is also helpful
if teachers request a limit on spending money. There are many things children
can purchase with just two dollars.
To book a tour with Pankiewicz Cider Mill, please call the mill
from Thursday or Friday 10am-5pm to schedule your tour. We look forward to
the opportunity to teach your students everything we know about apples!
Stan & Sharon
