ABOUT "Meckley's "
During the summer the farm is a great place to just come and unwind. Take a stroll in the orchard or check out the animals in the live farm exhibit. Relax with a cup of coffee or tea and a fresh hot donut out on the deck while the birds tell you there day’s story. It’s our little slice of heaven that we would love to share with you. Things shift gears as we go into the fall. Every weekend is jam packed with family fun. We have hay rides, live entertainment, pony rides, 10 acre corn maize, hot dog roasts, the pumpkin patch and the animal exhibit. Watch cider being made the way it’s been done for generations. Enjoy the cool crisp air and beautiful colors that you can only find in the twisty back roads of Southern Michigan. Starting September 21st through October 31st, our fall festival will take place on Saturdays and Sundays. All activities are weather permitting and begin around 12:00PM and run through 5:00PM. Do not forget to stop at the token booth for tokens before beginning the days adventure!
DATE & TIME SCHEDULE
Meckley’s Flavor Fruit Farms in Somerset Center throw in weekend entertainment, hayrides, corn mazes and more to draw in families looking to spend a day on the farm. Meckley's is known for being part of Michigan’s growing agriculture industry. Agriculture is the second-largest industry in the state, contributing $71 billion annually to the economy, according to the Michigan Department of Agriculture. Agritourism — any operation or activity that brings visitors to a farm for a day of fun — is part of that. “It’s an active day out, with the kids really getting to use their hands and engage in different activities,” Bradish-Orta said. “It’s educational and just a great way to enjoy our fall weather.” It’s also often pretty tasty, with a variety of places offering doughnuts, pies, cookies, jams and more, along with apples and cider. While some places do charge for hayrides and corn mazes, many of the activities on the farms are free. Pumpkins, a must-have for autumn decoration or Halloween jack-o-lanterns, also abound. Several places allow families to head out into the pumpkin patch to pick their own. “It’s just a blast to watch young kids run around the pumpkin patch and try to pick out a pumpkin when there’s so many to pick from,” “We love to see families enjoying themselves.” - Address Meckley’s Flavor Fruit Farm 11025 S.
