Our Table in the Orchard Dinner Series combines the experience of an orchard sunset with a 4 course meal prepared by our favorite local chefs, perfectly paired with our very own hard cider & local wines. Guests enjoy a full tour of our hard cider facility and orchard, then settle in for hors d’oeuvres and cocktails atop the rolling hills of Berks County. The table is then set, guests are seated and carried away on a culinary experience unlike any other, sharing the table with growers and cidermakers and culinary enthusiasts from all over the Mid Atlantic region.
Dinners are held twice per year, once during our summer peach harvest and once during our apple harvest. Reservations only. $125 per plate. Call or email for reservations!
Our Farm Market & Bakery proudly offers culinary classes during our season & off-season to teach guests the ins and outs of making our favorite bakery & seasonal items. Bread, pie, cookie and quiche making classes are a great way to learn from the pros to wow your friends & family during your next party or gathering.
Our 2 hours classes include instruction, creation, documentation, wine & hors d’oeuvres. Each guest leaves with everything they make and the recipes and know how to execute the given item again and again. Check out a full list of upcoming Culinary Classes at Frecon Farms below!

We host regular tours in our orchard throughout spring summer & fall to share the experience of a working orchard with schools & groups of all sizes. Each tour receives a 1 hour educational tour at the seasonal location of our choice, special cider, honey or fruit tasting and will be guided through the highlights of the harvest going on at that time.
From spring blossom tours and summer picking, to the very best of the fall orchard experience, Frecon Farms prides ourselves on educating kids and adults about what it takes to grow fruit here in the mighty Mid Atlantic. Our orchard tour programs are the perfect supplement to your educational, team building or field trip needs!

We’re often asked by homeowners and tree-fruit enthusiasts alike if we can help diagnose what ails their home & small scale orchards. After years of short phone calls and conversations-in-passing, we decided that helping folks preserve the tradition of growing fruit, whatever the size of your home orchard, was in everyone’s best interest.
So, we proudly offer Orchard Consulting services for those looking to learn more about our trade and will discuss or visit your orchard to help you get the most from your fruit trees for this season or next! Call or email to schedule a session with our growers.
