Once again, students in Saskatchewan have an opportunity to observe and experience first-hand, science in its purest form. Petrofka Orchard continues its commitment to educating young people about farming in Saskatchewan. Our 15-acre fruit and vegetable farm provides your students with a new appreciation for where their food comes from and how it is produced.
We would like to design our tours to better suit your class. Our tours are age specific and content can be altered or changed to best suit your classroom learning goals.
May and June means blossoms, bees, seeds, planting and more. As our season gets started, your school year is ending. Petrofka Orchard is a great place to wrap up your class. Our tours are running and we can’t wait for the first visitors of the year.
September is apples and lots of them. You’ll learn how to pick apples, explore the facility to see how they are handled, stored and view the machines used to process them into sellable by-products. If apples are ready, everyone will be able to pick an apple to take home too!
COST: $5.00 PER CHILD (One teacher and two parent helpers are no charge) AND $3.00 (gst included) PER ADDITIONAL TEACHER/PARENT. Each person will receive a free bag of dehydrated apples (value $3.00).
