Taves Family Farm
Taves Family Farms Applebarn is open for its 27th year, and celebrating with two new festivals, the Apple Celebration and Pumpkin Celebration. The Applebarn has become a fall tradition for families. As more people recognize the importance of shopping locally and understanding where their food comes from, along with desiring meaningful and engaging experiences, the Applebarn has seen its popularity soar. Go early as both parking lots were full by noon. We parked on the side of the road nearby! A big highlight are the u-pick orchards where people can harvest non-gmo apples, pears, and pumpkins. This year, apple varieties include Jonagold (the Taves' signature apple), Alkmene, Ambrosia, Fuji, Gala, Honeycrisp, Gravenstein, Spartan, and Elstar.
Other returning favourites include the Corn Quest Maze, pumpkin patch, farm animals, corn gun, pumpkin cannon, massive jumping pillows, hay rides, pony rides, and farm-fresh apple cider.
