West Elementary first graders recently spent an afternoon under the apple trees at the apple orchard at Iowa Lakes Community College in Emmetsburg.

Landscape and Turfgrass Technology Instructor Kevin Fehr and his students helped the boys and girls pick up apples shaken from the trees. The apples were then washed and placed in a cider press, releasing their juice.
