An educational farming experiencethat you will never forget.
After 30 years I still use Dick's use of compost as a natural fertilizer and using plants as pest deterrents.

A visit to Apple Pond Farm "puts it all together." We saw the hard work and effort that the team at Apple Pond Farm puts into taking care of the area's beautiful natural resources. This is so much more than just a "petting zoo." I highly recommend a visit to Apple Pond Farm for the whole family.

I had no idea how easy making our own fresh ricotta cheese could be and all the things we could use it for – not just lasagna anymore.
I now make my own ricotta cheese whenever I can and we love eating so healthy and fresh. Thank you Apple Pond Farm!
