In celebration of the fall harvest, the BarnYard has a special theme for each weekend, offering families lots of variety and fun activities.
Of course, our BarnYard Buddies (farm animal area) are always here, and we have tons of activities going on in the BarnYard :
A variety of vendors will be on hand with tasty treats such as hotdogs, pulled beef, crab cakes, pizza, funnel cakes, french fries, and of course, our Milburn Orchards apple cider and yummy apple cider donuts and giant Royal Gala caramel apples!
Wagons available to rent for the kids (and your pumpkins!) or you are welcome to bring your own.
U-Pick Apples & Raspberries Adventures are normally available every weekend. There is NO admission charge for any "U-Pick" events.
Parties During Fall Festivals:
New this year is a beautiful new pavillion available for private rental, along with a smaller white tent as a smaller option. In 2-hour increments, you can rent our gorgeous new pavillion ($60 per hour) that can hold up to 80 people under roof, 120 total with surrounding tables. It is right smack in the middle of everything and there is also an electric supply. The white tent available for rent holds up to 40 people, no electric supply ($40 per hour) and is near the front of the FarmYard.
Unless your guests are paying their admission fees themselves as individuals at full price, both of these rental options require advance purchase of Fall Event Admissions tickets, which will be discounted 20% off the prices listed above if atleast 20 are purchased.
Both rental types are totally customizable and have these options available as bonus add-ons:
* Game & Activity Tickets $1 each (if you'd like to treat your guests to more options, such as face paintings, games, or pony rides.)
* Kids Goodie Bags (range from $3.50-$9.00 per bag...or you can further customize)
*Customizable Adult Take-Home Goodie Bags-You tell us how much you want to spend on each bag, and we'll come up with some good Milburn treats for you!
*Party Hostess $30 per hour...if you think you'll need a helping hand.
*Meal Vouchers for lunch or snacks on the Orchard View Deck. Meals start at $4.50, snacks include ice cream cones $1.60, or slices of pie $2.95
