The first grade classes at Elk Ridge Elementary School recently had a field trip to Milburn Orchards in Elkton, Maryland. The students toured the apple packing house and the walk-in cold storage unit. They also met a variety of farm animals and took a hay ride through the orchard. Before returning to school, each student got to pick an apple from the dwarf trees on the grounds.
