The farm is now closed for the 2018 season.
Hope you will visit us in 2019.
Thank you for a great year!
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.
