The farm is now closed for the 2019 apple picking season.
Thank you for your visit. Hope to see you fall 2020.
Pack up your second grade students and come on over to Stepp’s Hillcrest Orchard for a HANDS-ON FARM EXPERIENCE and EDUCATIONAL ORCHARD-FARM TOUR. Your second graders will participate in an interactive educational farm lesson on the life cycle of insects specific to those found in the apple orchard; ride on a tractor pulled wagon; explore a corn maze; take a guided tour of the pumpkin patch; pick apples; drink a cup of local fresh apple cider. Take a self-guided tour of the Nature Trail.
Let us do the teaching for you as you trade your classroom for the farm . Your second graders will be excited about visiting our apple orchard while acquiring hands on learning that correlates with NC Essential Standards.
