Fall season begins August (see website for date) when the orchard opens for apple picking (Sat & Sun only) and the aroma of fresh apple cider doughnuts, home-baked pies, fudge, pasteurized apple cider and hand-spun caramel apples from The Orchard Shop and Bakery lingers in the air. September 21st the west side of the farm opens for some down-on-the-farm-fun like The Maize Corn Maze, hayrides, farm animals, a haunted forest, tractor tire mountain, peddle tractor derby, nature walk, jumping pillows, pumpkin picking and much more. Be sure to catch the Pig Races and The Cowboy Randy Roping Show on the weekends. The Pumpkin Farm is a great place to host your child’s birthday party or visit with your Scout group (see website for package details). November and December at the farm is dedicated to the holidays with pies and specialty foods for entertaining, unique gifts for giving and of course, Christmas trees. Harvest your own right from the fields or select a freshly harvested Fraser Fir from our huge selection.

Benefits of a Real Tree
One acre of Christmas trees produces the daily oxygen requirement for 18 people. Young, growing trees produce more oxygen than older trees. Christmas tree growers plant three trees for every harvested tree. Tree farms stabilize soil, protect water supplies and provide refuge for wildlife. Real trees filter dust and smog from the air. Real Christmas trees are recyclable and are a renewable source. Artificial trees contain non-biodegradable plastics and metals. 98% of holiday trees come from tree farms. Real trees give off a great fragrance!
