Children’s Spring and Summer Read & Pick Program Begins at Terhune Orchards

Terhune Orchards unique, hands-on, Read and Pick educational programs will begin in May and run through early October. The events are perfect for children ages preschool to 8 years. A storyteller gathers the little ones around and reads a book about fruits, vegetables, pollinators or farming equipment. Then the children participate in fun crafts and activities inspired by the book. Afterwards the group will go out into the orchards and children’s garden to pick the fruit or vegetables they just learned about, take a tractor ride or interact with the animals in the barnyard.

Read & Pick programs are held biweekly on Tuesdays at 9:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. Each session lasts about an hour. The cost is $7 per child and includes the activity. Pre-registration is requested. Please register online on the calendar listing at or call (609) 924-2310.
