A GREAT WAY FOR KIDS TO DISCOVER HEALTHY EATING

Rayner’s Orchard offers fun, educational days out for school children.

Most Kids don’t eat enough fruit and some kids don’t even like fruit. We help encourage kids to enjoy fruit by feeding them some of the best fruit they will ever experience!

Time and time again children visit our farm saying they don’t like fruit. We find if they are willing to try our fruit, they nearly always go home with a new found love of fruit.

EDUCATIONAL AND FUN PROGRAMMES

  • For all school aged groups.
