We used to go often with our four children to pick a variety of fruit for jam. With the picking fee in place now for every time your pick we will be looking for a new place. I know we can use the token towards the purchase of the fruit but it means we would need to purchase 10+lbs each trip at the cost of $3/lb for fruit to make it worthwhile. They are already higher in price than many other local farms. So much for a family experience :(

Growing up as a child down the road from the farm, before they had the terrible fire, I always enjoyed all the activities there. Hay Wagon rides, bon fires, outdoor zoo, picking your own pumpkins or even their cooking classes. They have a well stocked produce selection, my fondest memories were picking out the pumpkins and pies for the holidays. I never could wait for autumn to come around the corner and run and watch them sort the apples for the apple cider. Everything is always fresh there. They have swimming pool memberships available with two pool clubs.

Very kid friendly, and great produce from their farm in season. We especially like their apples. We do not visit much in the "off" season as the produce is just as good and more affordable elsewhere. Recently we attended the car show and had a great time. It can be crowded, but they have plenty of convenient parking and the staff is very helpful.

There is always something to look at, buy, or do here. Plenty of parking, outdoor fishing is available in the pond, activities on scheduled days, but the prices can be a little steep. fresh is key here, nice produce, can pick your own berries, and homemade items to buy.

Linvilla Orchards has been around for the better part of a century. There are many and various activities throughout the year, from hayrides and produce picking to country fairs and cooking classes. We've joined the two pool clubs for many years. The century-old historic landmark, an octagonal barn, sadly burned down some years ago. In place, they've built a well-stocked produce market and garden center. These and the full calendar of family fun will keep Linvilla active well into the next century.
