The arrival of fall means one thing at Terhune Orchards – apples! The Mount family has been farming in central New Jersey for 13 generations. Our tradition to start autumn with a celebration of the year’s apple harvest has grown into a fantastic weekend full of fun for everyone. . Apple Day on Saturday and Sunday, September 17-18, 2016 from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
This weekend is the first of our fall festivities. Fall Family Fun Weekends continue for seven more weekends in September and October. Each week, visitors can explore the best fall has to offer on a farm. The whole family will enjoy the view of trees laden with red, golden and green apples during a tractor pulled wagon ride around our permanently preserved farmland.
Little ones always love roaming through our corn maze. They’ll love visiting the barnyard animals or taking a pony ride. Pumpkin picking and apple picking are always a favorite past time here at the farm. Children’s activities include scavenger hunts, rubber duck races, pumpkin painting and many more ways for children to interact with nature here on the farm.
Each year our Adventure Barn has a new theme for children to explore. This year learn about the legend and lore of Johnny Appleseed. Take a walk through a unique, hand painted, life sized story book to learn about this man who dedicated his life to apples. That is something we know about here, too at Terhune Orchards!
Pam’s Apple Buffet offers our very own apples in apple cider, donuts and pies. Traditional lunch options that include hearty soups, vegetarian chili, pulled pork sandwiches, hot dogs and chicken pot pies can be found in Pam’s Food Tent. Terhune Orchards Apple Wine made from our own apple cider will be available in the winery tasting room along with our other 11 award winning, red, white and fruit based wines.
Throughout the season, explore our Farm Trail to learn about nature or settle in to listen to some live, old fashioned country music on each festival day. Daisy Jug band will be playing during Apple Day.
