Apple Picking at Sweetser's Apple Barrel and Orchards for the PS and MS

Our Petite Section and Moyenne Section went to Sweetser's Apple Barrel and Orchards this morning to pick apples. They visited the orchard and learned about apples and varieties, how to pick apples, how to protect the trees and their fruits from the hungry deer...

Then everyone got to choose and pick an apple...and of course, EAT it! This was some children's favorite part.

At the end of the visit, they came back to the store where they were shown how the apples are sorted with a machine, depending on their size. They were very happy to experience the whole process.

What a great way to start the week!
