Omaha, NE- Ditmars Orchard and Vineyard got its start back in 1994. Owner Lyle Ditmar started from scratch planting each tree on the dozen acre property. Today the orchard is home to more than 28 different apple varieties, as well as peaches, cherries and pumpkins.

Over the years Ditmars has changed, adding it own vineyard wine and many specialty foods. Some popular items on the menu include apple cider doughnuts and cider slush.

There are plenty of activities to keep the kids busy all day. The orchard has a tractor tire playground and play houses, a corn maze, tractor rides, a pumpkin patch, and the option to pick your own apples. Ditmar says it's all about teaching kids about where their food comes from in a fun way.

The Good Life with Jim Flowers airs every Wednesday on Upfront at 4pm on KMTV Action 3 News. If you have an activity, event or business you think Jim should feature for The Good Life email us at
