I live in the area, so I do have the ability to come here more often than city people. That being said, I know what it's like during the weekdays in their peak season.
It's $25 for 4 people and a 3 year old, who can't actually partake in anything aside from the wooden play area. Which, by the way is an absolute insane asylum of seemingly parentless children running amuck and constant fighting and shoving going on. It's total. chaos. Not the farms fault, but be prepared.
I have two small kids under 6 and this was a trip a friend wanted to take to visit on the weekend.
What you pay $5 per person for, is $0 Monday through Friday. You can't have your 3 or 4 year old partake in most of the things aside from seeing the animals which are always there.
If you want to wait an actual 35 minutes on line to buy cider donuts, this is the place for you.
They were already boxed up, by the way not being boxed right there and that's why it took so long.
Hay ride seems cool but you have 84,000 other people waiting for it, so there's that.
You can't get through the never ending lines of people waiting food or a beer outside the store because this place is so congested for what size it is. They have plenty of space to set up stands on the open field. It makes no sense. They are also super understaffed as far as helping customers go but you better believe that the security is there to make sure you're not stealing anything on your way out. Really just after the $.
It's so overpriced, it's insane. The "activities" they claim you get, you essentially get for free during the week. Yes, it's nice to hear live music and have the corn maze to do, but as I said, if you have small kids this is definitely something you don't need to waste money on.
You have to fight through people just to see the pumpkins in the front near the entrance.
I understand a lot of city people head this way for a fun day, but charging an admission for the things that are there which they call "activities" is just a gross way to make money. There's a wristband fee of $15 for some stuff for older kids that I can't even fathom paying $15 for.
They need more stands selling things, and to not have them all in one place so you have to fight through a small area with a sea of humans just to pass by. Really makes it a hassle instead of
a fun day out.
Make yourself and you family happy and just take a weekday off and come here.
Not everything is open, but you get what you want, which is the orchard and the apple/pumpkin picking. The store, too.
Don't give them more money than you have to, as they're getting pretty greedy by the looks of it!
The photo is just one of MANY lines you have to wait on just to get in. Then all of those people are in there! :|
