Fall Festival Weekends back in swing at Terhune Orchards

Fall Family Weekends will begin with Apple Day on Sept. 17 and 18 and continue every fall weekend through Oct.30. Every weekend at Terhune Orchards, there are opportunities to pick your own apples and pumpkins, listen to some good old-fashioned country music, paint pumpkins and take part in lots of children’s activities on the Mount Family’s 200-acre farm on preserved farmlands.

A full day of fun on the farm awaits the entire family. Get up close and personal with nature during a tractor wagon ride through our preserved farmlands or a walk on the farm trail or explore the corn maze. The Adventure Barn is decorated differently each year and tells the story of life on a farm. This year’s theme is about Johnny Appleseed. Walk through this life sized storybook to learn how he planted apples all across the land. The barnyard is always a popular stop to visit with the animals. There are pony rides, scavenger hunts, a rubber duck race and many more children’s activities to keep the little ones engaged for hours.

Pam’s Food Tent is open for lunch with barbecue chicken, pulled pork sandwiches, vegetarian chili, soups and more. Treats made with Terhune Orchard’s apples are also available. Enjoy your choice of our famous apple cider donuts, pies, muffins and freshly pressed apple cider.

Our winery tasting room is open to adult visitors to sample our red, white and fruit wines made with our apple cider.
