Murphy Orchards - Motorcoach Visits
We will do anything we can to give your tour group an enjoyable and memorable experience. Let us work with you to offer your group a perfect day.
Murphy Orchards is a working fruit farm, located about 30 miles north of Buffalo, 3 miles south of the Lake Ontario shore, and 25 miles east of Niagara Falls.
We are a recognized member of the National Park Service Underground Railroad Network to Freedom and the New York State Underground Railroad Heritage Trail. We look forward to sharing with you our history, our fresh picked produce, a serene meal in the Orchard Tea Rooms, our homemade jams and jellies, perhaps a guided tour, but certainly the peace and quiet and simple joy of true country living.
What We Can Do For Your Motorcoach Group . . .
For $1.00 per person,
When your group arrives, a guide will board the bus and give your guests a 5 to 10 minute introduction to our farm, our history and our facilities. While here, your group will be invited to:
Browse through our Country Barn Store, which features our fresh produce in season, and our wide array of homemade jams & jellies

Say hello to our little collection of farm animals
Stroll through our orchards or along our walking trails
Take Advantage of our rest room facilities (we're a farm, but our out-houses have real running water!)
Sit at a picnic table under a huge tree, and simply enjoy the serenity and our sweet country air
And we can also offer you, for an additional $1.00 per person,
A tractor-drawn wagon ride around the orchards. The ride lasts about 20 minutes, and will be available as long as you are here, so that your guests can take the ride whenever (or as many times as) they desire.

Or,. . .
We can offer a full meal. Lots of choices with varying costs.
And, as a sweet, final touch
We can provide you with a souvenir 5-oz jar of jam to give to each of your guests - we can even put a special, personalized label with the name of your company on each jar, for $2.55 each.
We tried to think of everything, but...
If there is something you would like us to do for you that we haven't mentioned, please give us a call, and we'll do our best to accommodate you, for the lowest possible cost.
