Flinchbaugh's Orchard and Farm Market regularly plays host to pre-schoolers eager to get an up-close look at pigs, bee hives and fruit trees.

This week the York County farm will offer the same front-row seat to everyone who visits the new stop on the annual Made in America tours.

"It's like a field trip for all ages," said Julie Flinchbaugh, market manager of the farm at 110 Ducktown Road in Hellam Township.

All guests will see the sights typically reserved for Flinchbaugh's youngest visitors.

Several features are part of the free, guided tours: various fruit orchards, active honey bee hives, commercial corn and soybean fields, tomato greenhouse production and pig-raising barns.

Flinchbaugh's is one of 27 local businesses that will open its doors to visitors during the tours.

Starting Wednesday: The Made in America tours will be held from Wednesday through Saturday and promote York's tagline as the factory tour capital of the world.

The four-day event typically showcased large manufacturers, such as Harley-Davidson's plant in Springettsbury Township and several local snack makers.

In recent years, however, farms and wineries have jumped on board.

"It makes sense to be on the tour because we are making things here," Flinchbaugh said.

It's also a chance for businesses to attract new customers.

"Hopefully more people will get to know us and visit again after the tours," she said.

New stops: Other new stops on the tours this year include Nuts About Granola at 237 W. Market St. in York City and Old Republic Distillery at 47 Cherry St. in Seven Valleys.

Nuts About Granola makes all-natural, homemade granola in several varieties and flavors. The company's products have been featured in Better Homes and Gardens, the Rachael Ray Show and inside Emmy gift bags.

Tourists will learn the company's history and how to make their own granola.

Old Republic Distillery is York's first distillery since prohibition. The tour will show guests how libations are made and include six flavors for sampling.

Many local companies participate in the tours to increase brand awareness, said Anne Druck, president of the York County Convention & Visitors Bureau.

"We've seen a boost to businesses during the event, and there's also a residual boost. Businesses get exposed to customers, and they remember those businesses," she said.

Most guests on the tour are primarily local or regional, Druck said.
