Steele Apple Orchard

We were able to visit Steele Orchard, a local apple orchard, with our homeschooling group recently.  The tour we went on was called The Johnny Appleseed Tour.  The kids were split up into groups and traveled from station to station.  They learned about Johnny Appleseed who the kids remembered.  We visited his birthplace in Massachusetts, which also happens to be where my grandparents live.  The kids also learned about pollination, how the apples are collected, and basic nutrition.  It was a really fun day that ended with a nice picnic.  We were able to go on this field trip with not one, but both, of the kids' grandmas!  They were very excited to spend the day with Gramma and Nana!
