During the tour, groups learn about the process of how an apple is grown, harvested, stored, sold, and eaten. Each participant receives a pack of apples to take home, a fresh candy or caramel apple made on the tour, cider and donuts, and a panini lunch.
When Leonard Oakes originally decided to found a farm in Orleans County in 1919, he ended up sparking a family legacy that would live on for decades. The third and fourth generations of the Oakes family still own and operate LynOaken Farms today, carrying on Leonard's legacy by continuing to grow and hand-pick bushel after bushel of crisp apples. The orchard features an all-encompassing spread of varieties, including numerous heritage apples. As different varieties ripen throughout the season, visitors can take advantage of the opportunity to savor anything from the crisp bite of empire apples to the honeyed sweetness of golden delicious apples. Guests can even experience the orchards firsthand by visiting LynOaken Farms in the fall and plucking fully ripened apples straight from the teachers' desks where they grow. The orchards aren't the only places to find farm-fresh goods though. LynOaken Farms' market also lures visitors with its selection of gourmet caramel apples, baked goods, artisanal cheeses, crafts, and other gifts.
