We specialize in wholesome homegrown fruit & vegetables & fun-filled family memories! Apples & Fresh Cider, Caramel Apples, Pumpkins, Corn Maze, Hayrides & more! May your time at Beasley's be long remembered!
Beasley's Orchard began in 1946 when Milton and Irene Beasley purchased the farm. They raised livestock (hogs, cattle and chickens) and grain. The family which included three children, Shirley, Sharon and John, also enjoyed gardening and tending a small apple orchard.
One year, an over abundant garden prompted sales out of young John's little red wagon, which was set up next to the nearest road, US 36. Over the years, the family business evolved from that first sale of tomatoes! Crops that are now produced each year for wholesale and retail sales include: Apples, Tomatoes, Sweet Corn, Green Beans, Cucumbers, Peppers, Eggplant, Squash, Cantaloupe, Watermelon and Pumpkins. The barn that houses the market was built shortly after the Civil War using classic peg and beam construction. It has been used for every aspect of farming including: hay storage, dairying, pork and poultry production, horses and now a retail market, apple packing and cider mill.
Special features of the farm include the "Heartland Apple Festival" held the first two weekends in October and a U-pick pumpkin patch accessible by hayrides every weekend in October. Customized fruit baskets and shipping boxes are available throughout the holiday season.
May your time spent at Beasley's be long remembered!

ABOUT "Beasley's Orchard"
We would like to introduce you to "Beasley's Corn Dog", our 2013 8-acre corn maze! Beasley's Corn Dog was created for fun and adventure, and to help bring awareness to Animal Rescue and Adoption. Hendricks County is home to eight animal rescue groups. Each of these organizations are dedicated to finding loving families for homeless animals. This year we have invited local animal rescue groups to join us at the maze during the fall season to showcase some of their animals and provide information about what they do. Being the insightful character that he is, Corn Dog presents you with a thought invoking question which is, "Who Rescues Who? ".
Maze designer Brett Herbst, the world's leading professional designer of corn mazes met this design challenge head on. He hopes to challenge the wits and determination of those seeking to find the one exit from his mind-boggling puzzle. The maze is navigated through a series of questions on a passport. If a question is answered correctly, you will be led in the right direction, however, if you answer a question incorrectly you will be led in the wrong (slightly longer) direction.
The maze can be navigated in less than half an hour, but it's not uncommon for most parties to take about an hour to find their way through the four miles of trails. The maze will be open for the season from September 20 to October 27. Hours of operation are 10 AM to 5 PM on Fridays and Saturdays and on Sundays from Noon-5 PM. Tickets are priced $8 for ages 12 and up, $6 for ages 6-11, and free for kids 5 and under. Maze Adventures can be scheduled for groups of 15 or more at a discounted rate. The maze can also be combined with one of our field trip adventures to the orchard or pumpkin patch for large groups.
"Who Rescues Who?", our Corn Dog asks. We challenge you to find the answer, along with finding a way out of the maze! Please come and join the fun this fall, and perhaps make a new furry friend, or even better, adopt one into your family for life.
Hayrides to the Pumpkin Patch run every weekend in October from 10am - 5pm on Saturdays and 12pm - 5pm on Sundays. Enjoy a scenic ride through the farm and pick your own pumpkin perfect for carving.
Cost for the hayride is $3.00 per person. Under age 3, free with adult. Pumpkins range in price from $2.00-$30.00, as they are priced by size. Most average Jack-O-Lantern types are between $6.00-$10.00. Be sure to dress properly for the weather and conditions. If it has recently rained, the field will likely be muddy in places.
During local schools' Fall Break we will offer hayrides certain week days, weather permitting. Please call ahead to check on scheduling.
