Group Tours 2018: Book Online

Group Tours for the 2018 season may be reserved online anytime.  You may book by phone Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, 9:30 AM to 4:30 PM (248-437-0150). The scheduling system is not available on Tuesdays. Reservations are processed on a first come, first reserved basis. Please scroll down to complete the online registration form.

The agriculture and farming business is always at the mercy of the weather.  Crop production and length of crop harvest is very sensitive to elements like rain, frost, wind, hail, heat, and extreme temperature shifts.  Because of these environmental factors, it can become necessary for Erwin Orchards  to harvest the apples from the trees and place them in bins.  If this becomes necessary, your group will select apples from the bins instead of picking apples off the trees.

Group Tours are available Monday through Friday:

Tours are scheduled Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, and reserved on the hour and the half hour.  Tours are offered September 17 – October 31.  We offer a variety of tours including Apple picking, Pumpkin picking, Mr. Bee’s 3-D Big Adventure, and Corn Maze packages. Please scroll down to view our offerings and complete the online registration form.
