School Field Trips

During the fall fruit harvest (September & October), Friske Farm Market offers educational and fun school field trips at our orchard. 

Discovering daily orchard life with us will create lasting memories as you spend some magical time “on the other side of the apple!”

Field Trips include a guided wagon ride, orchard walking tour, agricultural & historical insights, feeding of farm animals, kids playground and snack time. Post tour shopping is popular and welcomed, but not expected. Bookings will become available in the late summer.


Friske’s is the perfect venue for a variety of events, including: rehearsal dinners, birthdays, business meetings and lunches, bridal and baby showers or casual get-togethers with friends.
Our warm, intimate spaces with a charming country feel are available year ‘round, Monday-Saturday (outdoor spaces May-Oct)


Each of our three unique options create a wonderful backdrop for both casual and more formal gatherings:

BBQ BARN: Rustic, enclosed on three sides. Seats 35-50 depending on seating arrangement

ORCHARD CAFE: Cozy indoor dining room, available for private parties after 3 pm. Open to the public during business hours. Seats 30-40

Our outdoor venues are picturesque and delightful during Summer and Fall.
