October Harvest Festival

We celebrate the bounty of the harvest each October weekend from Thanksgiving weekend
till Halloween with lots of festive fun.  It’s pumpkin picking time!

Come on out; relax and enjoy time with your family. Get back to the basics - visit the farm animals, walk our trails, weekend wagon rides (weather permitting); play, laugh, learn.

Our main emphasis is to get outside and enjoy the beauty the countryside has to display.  The fall colors are brilliant this year, the air is fresh, and with our farm walks and scavenger hunts you can enjoy space and exercise.  There's lots of fun stuff happening on the farm.

Our pumpkin patch is amazing this year.  So many pumpkins its has Farmer Jim dancing.  Our pick your pumpkin patch is inside our admission area this year.  There will be a huge selection of picked pumpkins by our market, convenient and close to the parking lot for those who are short on time.  Come and find your perfect pumpkin.

  • It's Tradition! The last Sunday in October is Apple Cider pressing day.

    Come and get it hot off the press.

    The last Sunday of our Harvest Festival is traditionally our cider pressing day.  Come watch the Geissberger brothers as they press fresh apples into cider for us with their mobile cider unit.  The apples are washed, crushed, pressed and the cider is pasteurized all on the trailer.  A good chance to take home naturally delicious sweet apple cider with no preservatives or sugar added.

    Bonus - the cider keeps for one year without refrigeration.

    Enjoy the final day of our Harvest Festival activities.  A free pumpkin/family is included with your admission when you book online.
