Many are produced on Papa’s farm, and will be available for customers throughout much of the season. During each festival the farm will be available for farm educational and recreational activities. Wagon rides and walking tours to the vegetable garden, orchard and fishpond will be available. The children’s recreational area will be available as well as the hayride wagon, pumpkin train ride, and moon walk.
