We went for the fall pumpkin festival. Online I had ready that the hayride was $3 per person to the pumpkin patch and includes your pumpkin. Not true, it is $3 for ride (you are NOT allowed to walk to it) and then pumpkins are $3 for small and $6 for large. The field is not where they grow but a weedy, uneven field that is difficult for small children to navigate. It is next to apple orchards that have a large amount of apples that have fallen and are rotten along with MANY pumpkins that are rotten. We thought we found to good ones for our grandchildren but the mud caked on one disguised the rotten area on the pumpkin. The playground is another $3 and it does have a really cool large slide USE RUGS PROVIDED or you will surely get burned. There was one other cool thing to play on like a HUGE round wheel there are two on tracks and children are like hamsters on a wheel moving it down the track. Several climb on wooden structures that have slides, no mats provided to hot to use. animal petting area is another $3 and opportunity to purchase veggies, fruit and ice cream cone filled with feed or graham crackers (additional cost) to fee animals (one tiny little cup of feed included...no adult supervision in area with two bunnies and some geese and a turtle. Felt bad two bunnies where shaking so bad. Porta pots have a hand sanitizing dispenser attached to the fence. There was another opportunity to spend money at a wood working station..we passed it by, A few folding tables set up under tents to sit. the apple barn was extremely expensive, small bag of Honey Crisp Apples almost $12. Parking was great and close to the barn. I seen people have Carmel apples and ice cream, but I never seen where you could buy it. Overall it was an experience for grandchildren but not one I could recommend if you drive more than an hour like we did.

We had heard of the orchard but had never been there. There were apple orchards, peach trees and a pumpkin patch. They sell nursery and orchard items. We bought white pumpkins and a variety of bottled items plus apples. I am sure kids would have fun here. Friendly staff.

We took a 7 and a 4 years old to the Orchard. The kids loved feeding the animals and the playground. They also enjoyed the tractor pulling hay ride to pick apples & getting pumpkins. We walked up through a corn field too. We purchased many bottles of their preserves in the store. We went early morning on a Saturday to miss the crowds.
