Cloud Mountain Farm

The field rips I have taken so far here in WA rule! Tuesday I went with the first grades to Cloud Mountain farm. I t was fabulous! They grew a whole bunch of different stuff but the apples are what they are known for. Sam's class have been learning a lot about apples and all the different varieties (2500!)
These are Kiwi but not the fuzzy kind. They were so good! I want to plant some in my yard now!


They had a two of these plastic covered rooms one was full of peppers and the other tomatoes. They said they have been picking both since June!

Some Peppers!

They got to pick an apple off the tree...lift, twist and pull!


then we tried 3 different varieties of apples...my favorite was the ellastar!
