Apple Picking, Pumpkin Picking Hayrides and More!

Apple Picking Hayride – Mid Sept. to Early Oct.
Our baby Apple Orchard is growing fast! Last fall the branches began growing its first crop, this year the trees will twice as big and strong. That means MORE APPLES which is a great way to usher in a new season while still enjoying the outdoors. This tour includes a hayride to the apple orchard where a variety of apples await you. Each person will get to pick 4 apples to take home.
Pumpkin Picking – Mid Sept. to Oct. 31st
Our fields burst with pumpkins beginning the middle of September until October 31st. This is our longest running and most popular tour. We provide a hayride to our pumpkin patch but before you arrive there is “low key” corn maze to maneuver through. You enter into a bountiful beauty of color as you select just the right pumpkin.
Deluxe Apple/Pumpkin Picking Hayride – Mid Sept. to Early Oct.
Combine these two crops for a full FALL on the farm experience.
If one crop is not enough for your group why not do both? Learn how both grow and how to harvest while everyone enjoys the scenic hayride around the farm.
Immediately following our pumpkin season we begin to harvest popcorn. This tour begins November 1st and concludes right before Thanksgiving. This is a fabulous, educational tour. It begins with a hayride to the popcorn field & off to pick an additional crop either broccoli or Indian corn. Children learn how popcorn & cole crops grow, pick 4 ears & an additional crop to take home. Back in our historic barns we provide a hands on demonstration of how apples are pressed to make cider. We educate children on the history of our barns and show how farmers in the olden days shelled corn. This is wonderful fun and educational for both children and adults.
