Please leave pets at home.
While we LOVE our furry friends, too, pets are not permitted on farm property per regulations set by the State's Health Department.
Birthday Parties & School Tours
While we don't offer formal packages, please enjoy the farm for your celebration or outing. Feel free to reserve children's picking bags or pre-purchase family-size bags approx. 72 hrs in advance as tickets become live. Option to pre-order cider donuts for pick up in the farm store is nice but not necessary. We are donut making machines every single day all fall!
We accept cash, credit, debit and apple pay. We accept SNAP benefits in the Farm Store.
We welcome photographers and their clients to utilize the farm as a backdrop to family photos. All photography must happen during business hours 8 am - 6 pm. Orchards all close at 6 pm so please plan accordingly. Anyone entering the orchard must purchase a picking bag including families here for photo sessions. This works out well though as it's a nice option to have your families able to pick apples on the way out or as part of the photo session.
