Apple and Pumpkin Picking Hayrides
Our fall season kicks off with hayrides into our fields to pick your own apples and pick your own pumpkins.
Pumpkin picking and Apple picking season is our most popular time of the year. The first chill in the air paints our fields a lively shade of orange, which draws people from miles away to marvel at the many lumpy, smooth, round, and oblong pumpkins in our patch. Every picker is picky about their perfect pumpkin, and they enjoy the challenge of seeking it out! The real challenge is once they find it can they carry it? Don’t worry! We have wagons and strong hayride drivers galore to assist them in their quest. For over twenty-five years families have been flocking to our farm to enjoy the grandeur of finding that perfect pumpkin in our pumpkin patch.
Our Fall Festival Weekends include Live Music, Corn Maze, Moon Bounce, Pumpkin Picking Hayrides, and our Food Tent, which serves up tasty selections from the grill. There is also gourd picking and apple picking when available. Our Harvest Gift Shop, Animal Farm, and Discovery Barnyard are also popular destinations on a beautiful Fall day.
When you arrive at the farm, make your first stop the ticket shed to pick up your admission tickets for all of our Fall activities.
Don’t forget to stop in the Farm Market for a fresh baked Pumpkin or Apple Pie, a crisp Caramel Apples, and a warm bag of our famous cider donuts.
Our ice cream windows will be serving up our seasonal favorites of Apple Cider Slush and Pumpkin Ice cream.
