Lookout Farm is a fun place to visit. You can pick seasonal fruit and enjoy a visit to the shop where they sell everything from meats to delicious baked goods, organic produce and gelato. Ride the trains, visit the Children's Play Area, see the animals (after September), climb on the hay pyramid, and more.

  • Note that Lookout Farm charges for entrance to the orchard. Worth the price for the adventure but surprising to some who don't expect it. It's more of an attraction than your average U-Pick farm.
  • For a quick stop or just to get a good feel of the place, you can park at the shop, get a snack or treat. Nowhere near the wonder of the full adventure but probably enough if you're short on time, just want some seasonal and/or yummy treats, and/or your kids are under 1-2 years old and can't yet handle the whole adventure.
  • In addition to many varietals of apples, they have Asian pears, peaches, blueberries, strawberries, and a limited supply of Rainier cherries available for picking. Not only is this great for anyone allergic to apples, but the trees are shorter so the little ones can participate more completely in the picking adventures. If this is important to your visit, check with the farm for availability before you go.
  • Weekends offer face painting, hourly children's entertainment, and, seasonally, camel and pony rides.
  • It's strongly recommended that you try to visit during the week or early or late in the season. Crowds can be overwhelming in the height of apple and pumpkin season (early fall). Particularly on weekends, traffic backs up both ways on Pleasant Street and waits just to get in to park can be upwards of 20-30 minutes. The wait for the snack bar (in season, weekends) can be long and may be difficult for young or hungry youngsters so consider packing a lunch or at least some snack to control your own destiny.

Have fun!
