Butler’s Orchard is a working farm that you and your family can explore right in the heart of Germantown. They have seasonal events as well as year-round adventure ripe for the picking. Pun intended.
Strawberry Fields Forever at Butler’s Orchard.
Who doesn’t love fresh strawberries? The answer is no one. Everyone loves fresh strawberries and kids from preschool to third grade can enjoy one of the Strawberry Blossom Tours at Butler’s.
The tour includes a tractor-pulled ride through the fields where you get to see the strawberries in blossom, a trip to the pollination station, a visit with the barnyard buddies (Charlie the pig is mentioned. He sounds like a lot of fun.), educational enrichment about strawberries, and a strawberry plant for each person to take home.
Getting kids excited about agriculture and nature is a great way to spend some time over the summer!
These tours run from May 1st to May 11th Tuesday through Friday mornings.
