Where are we going today?
Two words: Farming fun! Do you ever wonder where your delicious fruits and yummy vegetables come from? Well, now you can!
At Paulus Orchards you can pick delicious blueberries and ripe peaches in the summer, sweet juicy apples and soft yummy pumpkins in the fall....
If you are looking for something to do on weekends in September and October, the whole family can come and enjoy fun wagon rides, a super fun corn maze, slippery tube slides, bouncy inflatables and zooming pedal karts, and in October, get lost in their flashlight maze!
You can pick Blueberries in the summer, and Apples and Pumpkins in the fall. Check out our website for more info.
There is a tasty Farm Stand open all week during the in-season too.
Keep an eye out for any fun festivals that are scheduled. Blueberry festival...Peach festival...all paired with crazy colorful face paintings, pancake breakfasts and great musical entertainment. A great day out for the whole family that benefits local charities - so a good cause too!
Little Farmers Classes are a great hit for kids. A different theme each week will encompass super farmtastic activities such as crafts, story-time, games, science experiments and playtime.
So pack your farm hat and empty stomach, and head to the farm!

Paulus Orchards are happy to accommodate school tours, which are available weekdays during the fall. The kids will enjoy fun tractor-pulled wagon rides, get out into nature and pick fruit, have fun learning about bees (and check out the super cool beehive!) and other creatures that make up farm life, and so much more. There is a beautiful picnic area for lunch also for the students. They can also provide teachers with free resource materials. .
There's nothing quite like the fresh food found on a farm! During the fall they have delicious homemade soups, plus yummy lunch options such as BBQ sandwiches, turkey, hot dogs, wraps, ice cream, the favorite peanut butter and jelly for the kids, and very milky milkshakes!.
Deliciously healthy turkey wraps, along with peanut butter and beautiful homemade jelly sandwiches are available .
Any Top Tips?
Wear comfortable shoes so you can run and play without hurting your feet, and don't forget your sunscreen! We don't want to going home the same color as the berries!.
Need a little extra help?
The farm stand within the orchard is wheel chair accessible. The corn maze and u-pick are possible with a wheel chair, but worth noting its not a paved area..
Can I get one of those?
Fun t-shirts and gift items are available to take home, as well as the fun memories and delicious fruits you will have accumulated!.
Keep an eye out for the different activities and when they occur throughout the year as they change depending on the season. .
