Apple and Pumpkin Picking Tours: Belleville & Grafton


Top St. Louis Field Trips: Apple and Pumpkin School Tours

There's no better way to teach kids about food and encourage them to enjoy the fresh air than by picking apples and pumpkins! Eckert's has designed a unique apple- and pumpkin-picking combination tour for schools looking for memorable field trip ideas that leave a truly lasting impression. Kids are invited to go on a special tractor-pulled wagon ride to the orchard for apple-picking and then to the pumpkin patch, where they'll get to choose one apple and one pumpkin to take home. They won't soon to forget this awesome experience!

Pumpkin and Apple Student Tours

Our patch and orchard tours are a popular pick for kids in pre-K through fourth grade, but are interesting for pickers at any age! We offer affordable combination tours with prices at just $7 per student and free admission for parent chaperones, students, teachers and aids employed by the school. Note that we do require a minimum of a minimum of a 1:5 adult-to-student ratio to ensure the safety of our guests and the preservation of our land. These unique combo tours are available at our Belleville, Millstadt and Grafton farms in the St. Louis metropolitan area and near Lexington, KY at our Versailles farm.

Generally speaking, our apple and pumpkin tours are best for school groups, because we only offer them on Wednesdays through Fridays during the schoolyear. However, we can certainly accommodate corporate groups, birthday parties and other gatherings if you contact us directly. There's so much to do at our multigenerational family farm, you can easily make an entire day out of a trip to Eckert's. And we're sure curious kids will eat up the experience!
