Come experience the old fashioned delight of flying a kite with your family during Kite Day on May 6 and 7 from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. at Terhune Orchards. This is the farm’s is unique way to welcome spring by taking over the skies with high-flying fun.
Children can make and decorate their own kites. We use a kite design that is guaranteed to fly. The farm store will be stocked with a fantastic assortment of pre-made kites in the fanciful form of dragons, birds and many more colorful designs. Feel free to bring your own kites from home, too.
Little ones can join lots more old fashioned, farm fun beyond kite flying. All ages enjoy playing pin the tail on the piggy, sack races and blowing bubbles. Climb aboard one of our tractor drawn wagons for a ride around the orchard and farm fields. If we are in luck the apple trees will be flowering. Keep your eyes on the sky to see the kites swoop and glide above you. Make the day extra special with a pony ride and a visit with the face painter.
On Sun., May 7 at 2 p.m., sheep shearer, Joel Markensey, will demonstrate how to shear sheep in the barnyard. Children get to take home a card shaped like a sheep with a piece of fluffy wool attached. Be sure to get to know some of the other animals in the barnyard while you visit.
On both days, local musicians will provide old-fashioned fiddling and fun. Ocean Country will play on Saturday and Tookany Creek will perform on Sunday.
