Apple Picking & Tour at Appel Happel

The members of UHSG had the opportunity to go apple picking and tour the orchard at Appel Happel. The tour started off with a story regarding the legend of the Big Apple.





Then, the homeschoolers had to go out into the apple orchard to collect fallen apples that had fully ripened.

 
 
Upon returning with the fallen apples, the homeschoolers learned the process of making apple juice.
 


The day ended with apple picking and each homeschooler was able to pick five apples a piece that was included in the cost of the apple tour.  Many families picked a good amount of extra apples to take home and make apple goodies like apple butter and apple pie.
