Every Weekend
in September and October

Saturday and Sunday afternoons the tractor and wagons run.   Catch a ride to pick a bag of your favorite tree ripened apples.

The children's play area will be open; including our ever popular three-story wire maze and fun glider swings.  There's even a real tractor you can pretend to "drive".

Beau, the donkey, and some of his pasture pals always enjoy a visit, especially when it includes a "handout".  The goats are especially friendly, but watch out, Beau likes fingers! 

Stop by the little white shed to see the young chickens, part of this year's Egg Factory.
