Every Weekend
in September and October

Saturday and Sunday afternoons the tractor and wagons run. Catch a ride to pick a bag of your favorite tree-ripened apples.

The children's play area will be open; including our ever popular three-story wire maze and fun glider swings. There's even a real tractor you can pretend to drive.

Visit the giant bunnies in their different hutches. One pair has a secret tunnel. Can you figure out where it goes?

The donkeys, and some of their pasture pals always enjoy a visit, especially when it includes a handout. The goats are especially friendly, but watch out for your fingers!

Stop by the little white shed to see the young laying hens, part of our Egg Factory.
