Tours are a regular favorite for visitors of all ages..
Oak Farm Orchard Tours are both fun and educational for
young and old alike. This is a great way to get a history
of our orchard and see the whole orchard operation. These
Orchard Tours are slightly different than our School
Tours and are designed for those who desire that extra
special additional experience while at Royal Oak Farm Orchard!
Starting in late August
after 2:00PM* we offer an antique tractor drawn wagon tour of the
orchard, weather permitting. Your tour will include a history
of the orchard, stopping to visit our 235 year old oak tree the
orchard is named for, learning how our bees are the orchard's
best friend, and you will learn about the 22 varieties of apples
we have at the orchard. Cost of the tour is $2.50
and requires a token to board. On
Wednesdays, we offer a Seniors tour only for $2.00. Each day's tour schedule is dependent upon the number of visitors we have to the orchard desiring the tour and the number of school tours and senior tours booked for that day. Call our office at (815) 648-4141, Ext. 4 for tour availability.
