School Tours

County Line Orchard is the leader of orchard tours in the Chicagoland area. In 2009, almost 40,000 students, teachers and chaperones visited our orchard for an educational and fun field trip. Over 95% of those teachers have already made reservations to come again this year.

We are strong believers in experience education and have been a leader in school field trips for almost 20 years. If you are veteran teacher then welcome back. If you are new to County Line Orchard school tours then we extend a warm welcome and hope you make us your fall stop for many years to come.
