“Do not go to Pumpkinland”
Reviewed October 25, 2012 via mobile

I went with a group of preschoolers yesterday and was very disappointed with Pumpkinland. After a boring hay ride that didn't keep the kids interest we were dropped off at a spot that had pumpkins in large bins similar to what you see in a supermarket. The fun of walking through a pumpkin patch to find your perfect pumpkin. You don't get that here. So if you are looking for a fun place to get a pumpkin look somewhere else.

“Great way to spend an afternoon, but go during the week”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

Livilla has much to offer its' visitors. You can pick your own fruits and vegetables. There is a petting zoo on the premises. Gets very crowded on the weekends.

“Good Produce,- Animals' Pens are Disgusting”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

I took my daughter for a fall afternoon and found the choice of fruit and vegetables great and we enjoyed picking our own tomatoes and egg plants.

We also walked around the grounds and were dismayed by the horrid conditions that the animals are kept in. The fowl are wading in their own manure and the stench is unbelievable. It is really a shame and the owners and township need to either remove the animals or supply living condition in a humane manner.

“An amazing place to pick your own fruits and veggies!”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Im in love with Linvilla! Its an amazing place where you can go on the fields and pick your own fruits and veggies. There is a store where you can buy seeds to plant your owns or different healthy hand made food. And also, there is a playground where the kids can have some fun!

“Pick your own fruit and bring the kids!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Family friendly entertainment well suited to younger kids. If you are looking for a gentle Halloween activity for pre-schoolers, this may be for you. There are activities year round, petting zoo, and depending on the time of year, corn mazes, hayrides, cider, pony rides, face painting etc. Everyone in our family loves their dutch apple pie. You can pick your own, or buy baskets of fruit from their own orchards. Great place for live Christmas trees too!
