Updated for 2020!

Please note: do not bring your dog to the orchards; they cannot allow dogs into the orchards and pumpkin fields per health regulations, so you'll have to leave your four-legged friend in the car.
COVID Updates: All individuals over 2 years must wear a mask. Please maintain social distance between your group and other groups. Hand sanitizer and/or hand-washing stations are available at all orchards.
