This 300-acre farm is perfect for families looking for fun and educational field trips to take together. Our Media medical malpractice lawyers highly recommend visiting here if you’re at all a fan of farmer’s markets or orchards. Some of our favorite aspects of Linvilla Orchards include:
Fun Family Activities
Linvilla Orchards is overflowing with fun family activities. Some activities are seasonal and only come around briefly each year, while others are more permanent. Regardless of the season, you can be sure that they’ll be hosting something festive where you and your family can learn and have fun together at the same time.
Some of our favorite family activities at Linvilla Orchards include:
- Barnyard – At the barnyard, your family will have the opportunity to meet some of the farm’s animal residents. Their creature collection includes white-tailed deer, calves, goats, horses, sheep, and a pot-bellied pig. They also have a bird collection featuring chickens, geese, pheasants, quail, doves, ducks, peacocks, and guineas.
- Pick Your Own – Picking your own produce helps support local agriculture and provides fun memories and bonding experiences. Hayrides depart from 8 am until 6:45 pm each day. Available crops change depending on the season, but this summer the orchard has apples, blueberries, blackberries, plums, nectarines, eggplant, yellow squash, and much more.
- Indoor Mini Golf – This 18-hole mini-golf course, called “Fore! The Planet”, helps teach kids about environmental issues while they enjoy competing against each other over the course of a variety of challenging holes.
The Farm Market is always a must for us when we visit Linvilla Orchards. This is a great place to stock up on a variety of delicious fresh produce, baked goods, handmade candies and snacks, gourmet items, and more. The produce is all in-season and homegrown right at the orchards and is some of the freshest we’ve ever had. In fact, we frequently make the trip here just for the Farm Market instead of relying on a regular grocery store for our produce. The desserts, snacks, and other gourmet specialties are just as delicious.
