School groups are welcome Monday through Friday, by appointment only, for children preschool age to 2nd grade. Children’s outdoor birthday parties are also welcome, by appointment only, on weekdays during the season, and weekends from Aug. 18 through Sept. 16, and Oct. 20 through Nov. 4.

Please note that as of Sept. 17, there is very limited availability for school group and birthday  party reservations. We can still book school school groups for mid-Oct. through the beginning of Nov., and birthday parties for Oct. 21, Oct. 28, Nov. 3, and Nov. 4.

Apple package: For $11.00 each, each child will be able to pick their own bag of apples. This price also includes a scenic tractor-pulled wagon ride, a cup of cider and an apple cider donut, a walk through our corn maze, play-time in “Tiny Town”, and a visit with our farm animals in a safe and clean environment. Apple & Pumpkin package: For $13.00 each, this package includes all aspects of the apple package, as well as the child’s choice of a sugar pumpkin.

pettingThere is a minimum of 15 children participating in the school group and birthday party packages. Therefore, prices start from $165, which includes materials and activities for 15 participants in the apple package. Additional participants are charged $11-$13 each, depending on the package chosen.

We request at least one chaperone for every 5 children. Chaperoning teachers and adults will not be charged if they do not wish to pick. If they wish to purchase fruit or food available at our farm market and bakery, they may do so at a reduced rate.

A discounted rate will be given to birthday party guests for food and drink purchases at our barbeque, farm market and bakery. Picnic tables located near Tiny Town will be reserved for a two hour time block for birthday parties. Tents are available for rental for the two hour time block for an additional fee. Rental of a 20′ x 20′ tent with the use of tables and chairs is $150;  Rental of a 20′ x  40′ tent with the use of tables and chairs is $300.00.

Payments and Deposits: A $50 non-refundable deposit is required within one week of the event date in order to reserve your party’s date and time, and may be made by Visa, Mastercard, or Discover. The rest of the payment may be made the day of the party by cash, money order, Visa, Mastercard, or Discover.
