Pick Your Own Hayrides
Take a hayride into the fields and pick your own fresh produce! The hayride is fun, and there is plenty of time to leisurely walk through the fields and pick your favorites!

Throughout the year, strawberry, sugar snap peas and cherries kick off the first major harvest of the year, during May and June. Mid-June through July, there are blueberries! Sweet corn and peaches or nectarines follow, in July, August, and into September. Apples—Fugi, Empire, Red Delicious, Golden Delicious, Staymen, Granny Smith, Pink Lady, Cameo and Gold Rush—are available (see the website for specific variety harvest dates) in September and October. Pumpkins are available September through Halloween! And popcorn, sweet potatoes, broccoli and cauliflower are in season and available for harvest in November.

Check the website for specific hours and harvest offerings. The cost for the hayride is $3.75 per hayrider. The cost for the produce you pick is different for each crop. When the hayride ends, the staff will weigh your pickings and charge you the flat per-pound price for that particular crop. When the weather is hot, they have “Pay the Temp Tuesdays,” Friday night Farm-B-Que and Car Shows, and the ice cream window is open until 9pm.
