Tours and Groups
We very much enjoy visits from larger groups who would like to tour the farm or simply see our store. However, in order to accommodate the special needs and interests of a group, we request you phone ahead at least a week in advance of your intended visit. We especially enjoy visits from groups of children and can organize special activities, events and treats for them.
If you have a group and would like to know how to organize for a tour of our farm, and to get answers to the many questions you are likely to have, please go to our contact page and either write or email us. We look forward to showing off our farm to you.
Cider Hill Farm conducts apple picking and pumpkin picking
school tours for children in the pre-school to 3rd grade age group.
These tours consist of a hay ride, the picking activity of choice, a
maze adventure, and refreshments. The nominal time for each tour is
one hour, but groups larger than 55 are usually scheduled for more time.

We try to have something special happening here at Cider Hill to make your visit pleasant and memorable. However we are not an entertainment complex, so some days its just about the farm.
We have had a variety of events in the past, like bluegrass bands, a cellist, Asian chefs, bagpipers, clowns, and all sorts of things. We're not sure what we will have this summer and Fall, but stay tuned. If you have a good idea for an event, let us know and we'll see if we can host it it.
If you need to know what crops will be fresh and when, please go to our crop calendar.
Your trip to the farm can take some time, depending on where you may be driving from. many people can spend hours here poking about, watching the livestock, and picking their own strawberries, blueberries, peaches and apples. But if you want to make a full day of it, there are other places to visit nearby, with something for everyone. For more information, click here.
Farmers' markets :
Another great way to enjoy our farm fresh foods is to find us at a local Farmers market. These markets host farmers from throughout the area, each with their own booth and their own fare. It is a very old-world feeling, and a lot of fun to poke through the wares and hand-pick the exact vegetables and fruit for your table. We participate in several local markets.
