Kite Day is a perfect time to explore the farm during our spring festival. Spring on the farm is one of the most beautiful and exciting seasons. All is ready for the bountiful growing season. Bring your own kite or choose a ready-made kite from the wide selection in the store. Or better yet, make a "guaranteed to fly" kite. Whichever you choose, test fly your kite in our wide-open 10-acre pasture with all the farm animals looking on.
The farm will ring with country music and entertainment all weekend. The whole family can tour the orchards and fields while riding in a tractor-drawn farm wagon. The sheep will be shorn on Sunday and the children can take home a piece of real fleece. There will be special activities and games for children in the barnyard. For all those hungry kite fliers, we'll have lots of good country food. The whole family will enjoy Terhune Orchards' famous apples, cider, donuts, pies, country chili, hot dogs, our own fresh and grilled asparagus, salads, soup and all kinds of cookies and goodies.
