  • Overview

    We are open 9 AM – 7 PM daily through November 8. The Farmyard* awaits your laughter and smiles, the Corn Maze is waiting to be explored, the Apple Market store is ready to welcome you, and our food venues are ready to tempt you. Come enjoy the fresh air and sunshine!

    (*We are sad to share that we will not have the Corn Pool this year due to our inability to frequently disinfect approximately three bazillion kernels of corn. We look forward to welcoming it back next year!)

    Our U-Pick orchard is closed for the year. Pre-picked apples are available in the Apple Market. Check here for current availability.

    We are reducing attendance each day in order to promote safety, so purchase your Farmyard tickets online ahead of time to avoid disappointment!
