Orchard Walk and Scavenger Hunt

015Once again I have made a fun map for you to take along on your explorations of the orchard.  One of the things on the map is the path for the orchard walk.  The orchard walk starts by the goats and emus.  Then it takes you by the Ginormous sunflowers – seriously – they’re huge this year!  Feel free to wander through them – it’s not a crazy big area so you shouldn’t get too lost ;) 

When you’re turn after the sunflowers be sure to look far to the left to see the trees we have on trellis’s (I’ll talk more about these later) and the pumpkin patch is sort of in front of you.

Then as you walk west along the path you’ll see apple trees and some random field’s my father-in-law planted.  He got a new planter this year so he wanted to try it out.  One of my favorite little sections is a mixture of corn, sunflowers, and broom corn (images shown on post).  I just think it’s a beautiful depiction of fall (even though it’s August). 

At the top of the hill you’ll be able to hang out on our Lookout Deck and look over all the fields in our area.  It’s the highest point around and truly a beautiful view.

If you like to have a challenge on your adventures be sure to stop by the store to pick up our Photo Scavenger Hunt Challenge.  There are 12 things to take pictures of and if you get 10 of those things photographed and posted to either our facebook page or our flickr site you can win a free bag of apples!  If you did the scavenger hunt during apple blossom days – no worries, I’ve switched things up a bit…
