The orchards are plentiful and provide an ample variety of apples like Empire, Cortland, McIntosh, & Macoun, to name a few. You can purchase either a 10lb bag for $17 or a 20lb bag for $25. Then you can set off on your own to pick your apples.

The kids' ride-on area has a bunch of mini-John Deere tractors inside a hay enclosure which is fun and a cute photo-op. The mini tractors now have mini implements the kids can connect and haul mini pumpkins and mini hay bales around the ride area. New this year, is a fun tractor/hayride shaped playscape with slides. A very cute photo op!
The jump house is a a great way for kids to burn off some of that energy after eating those delicious cider donuts.
You can also visit the farm's herd of farm animals: goats, sheep, ponies, chickens, guinea fowl, bunnies, and a Llama to stand guard.
