What types of things will you hear about?

All year long our family is caring for the apple trees, pumpkin patches, and all the fun activities we have at the farm. Every Tuesday when you come for breakfast we will share our current projects with you. It may be about how we are grafting Granny Smith apple shoots onto McIntosh trees. Why we cross plant the corn field and map out the maze. How far along the apples are and how the crop is doing this year.

Can you go out into the orchard?

On most days you can take a walk in the orchard and see first hand what we are doing. Some parts or all of the orchard may be off limits depending on what types of activities the team is doing.

Can I bring my grandkids?

Thursdays are really the best days to visit with kids, but stay tuned as we may make some changes this summer. Please bring the grandkids to our Kids Farm School on Thursday mornings or bring the whole family to our Thursday Stay & Play evenings. 

Do I have to sign up?

Breakfast is served from 7am-12pm. Cash is easier, but credit cards will also be accepted. The Play, Craft, & Sips do require a sign up of at least 1 week before and earlier if you would like to save $5. If you have questions please call 845-883-7825.
