Your Guide to Safe Outdoor Fun at the Farm on Saturdays, Sundays & Holidays!

Whether you want to Drive Thru and pick up some Apple Cider Donuts, or Enjoy the FUN Activities we have to offer, Hurds Family Farm has got you covered. But before you come on over, there are a few things you’ll want to understand to ensure you have the smoothest and fullest experience.

ALL of our activities are still open to enjoy, but we’ve put a few COVID-19 safety standards in place to make sure your visit is as safe as possible.

Apple Picking & Activities

Placing your Online Pre-Order (Requires Online Purchases):

In order to enter the farm, you must place an online pre-order the morning of your visit. Pre-Orders open at 8:00 am and are only valid for the day they are purchased. Due to COVID-19, limiting your visit to 2 hours would be appreciated, but you are welcome to stay longer if you want.

A purchase of $10 or more will grant you and your entire vehicle access to the Farm.

Note that these items may all be purchased at the Barn Market Cashier while you are here, however, the online pre-order is the only way to guarantee we won't reach capacity with our wristbands and hayrides (apple picking has no capacity).

Please note, the following add-ons are CASH ONLY at the Activity, not an online purchase.

  1. Cow Train

  2. Corn Maze (included in the Activity Wristband, but also sold separately)

We welcome friendly dogs all throughout the Farm, so feel free to bring them along!

October means it's pumpkin season! To pick pumpkins from our patch, make that $10 or more online pre-order of anything you'd like in order to enter the farm, then once you are here, you can pick your pumpkins. Small pumpkins are $5, medium pumpkins are $14, and large are $20. You can pay with cash or card.


How to Park and Get Going:

When you pull into the farm, you’ll meet one of our Friendly Team Members who will ask if you’re planning on staying for Apple Picking & Activities.

They will direct you to the left to one of our Welcome Cashiers who will ask for your last name to look up your online pre-order, give you everything you pre-purchased online, and direct you to the nearest parking spot.

After that, you’re free to enter through the main gate and explore the farm! (The barn is Exit Only this year). Take part in your pre-purchased activities or visit one of our food options that don’t require an online order.


Food at the Farm:

You’re bound to get hungry on your Apple Orchard Adventure, and we’ve got you covered. Here are all the places you can get a meal or a snack at Hurds Family Farm. Credit & Card accepted at all locations.
