Corn Stalk Teepee & Hay Fort: Many tears are shed by the little ones when parents tell them it is time to leave. Young children thoroughly enjoy playing in the corn stalk teepee and the hay Fort. Some parents even get upset when their little ones knock over hay bales. We think it is part of their childhood to be creative and enjoy their creativity. We only ask that those bales of hay be restored prior to leaving. It’s only hay!


Pumpkin Patch Hunt: Sometimes this is way more exciting than picking apples. Find the perfect pumpkin in a hay field where you can only find the pumpkin when you get real close to it. “Is this one better than the other one I just passed by or do I keep looking?” It’s a real hunt to find your pumpkin, especially in the tall hay. The attached picture is not the pumpkin patch. It’s only a small representative of pumpkins found in the pumpkin patch.

Meet the ‘Hay Family’: This was the original Mister ‘Hay Man’ in 2011. In 2012 we introduced him to “Hay Woman”. Last year unfortunately, they left the premise temporarily. In 2014, Mister ‘Hay Man’ and his family will be joining the orchard once again. They are amazingly tall and very photogenic. The Hay Family picture will be posted prior to the opening of “Pick-Your-Own” apple season.


The Corn Maze: It is not huge, but it is free and entertaining.
