A nice twist on a favorite Fall adventure! Call us today to sign
up for our Spring Home School Day on May 15, 2014. Home
School Day is a chance for small groups to experience a 4 hour
farm tour -- without having to meet a group minimum size!
You can sign up for just one person, or bring your home school
group. The cost is $10 per adult and $15 per child.
The activities are historical, educational, hands-on, and just
plain FUN! We'll be doing Corn Husk Dolls, Frontier Cabin
adventure (newly expanded!), Rope Making (with a drawing to
see who gets to take the rope home), Gold Panning, Hayride,
and Archery. The tour runs from 10am to 2pm, with a lunch
break in the middle. Your day begins with an interactive
musical introduction, where you & your child can help play
the instruments and sing along with Pa Riley!
Sharon's Country Store will stay open all day for your
shopping pleasure. Spend a wonderful day with us in scenic
& charming Oak Glen! Call 909-797-4061 to sign up. We are
also taking sign-ups for our Fall Home School Days (September
17, October 29, & November 6, 2014).
We are getting ready for our Spring farm tours / field trips, which
will begin in May. We'd love to host your group tour or field trip and
would be happy to take your phone call to book your tour. Now is a
great time to book your Fall tour as well. For more info, see our
School Tours page for more info or call us at (909) 797- 4061.
For U-pick, plan to come and pick berries in mid-July. As the time
gets closer, we will update the website with a definite date, so stay
tuned! The apple crop will be early this year, so the tart varieties
of apple should be ready by mid to late July. Apple Season will
begin officially on Labor Day Weekend (the first weekend in
September), so that is when our weekend activities begin (hayride,
archery, tomahawk, knife throw, BBQ snack bar, apple cider
pressing, and more!) U-pick apples for 2014 will probably end
early (sometime in October), so plan accordingly.
- Riley's Apple Farm is the original "Riley's" in Oak Glen! We are set on a cozy 3 acres in mile-high Oak Glen - California's own "Apple Country." We are not "Riley's Farm;" that is a completely separate business. Look for the red apple cutout that sits on top of our "Riley's Apple Farm" sign!
- We are a u-pick apple, berry, & pumpkin farm. U-pick is available only when fruit is in season (mid-July for raspberries & blackberries / late July to early August for apples / mid to late September for pumpkins.) End dates for u-pick vary depending on crop size, weather variations, and how many people come & how much they pick! Berries usually last until the first frost of the year, which can happen anywhere from late September to early October. Apple u-pick can end anywhere from early October to late November. It's always a good idea to come apple picking in September to make sure you get to do it!
- We do Fall & Spring farm tours for schools, churches, scout troops, seniors, and other groups. We let you design your own tour by choosing from our wide variety of activities, including Frontier Cabin Adventure, Gold Panning, Hayride, Apple Cider Pressing, Archery, Kazoo Making, Rope Making, Corn Husk Doll Making, Corn Grinding, & Johnny Cake Baking (in a wood-burning oven!)
