There are so many things to do at Hillside Orchard...
You may Pick-Your-Own blueberries in July & August,
and your own apples in
September & October. (The apples are specific varieties, available
at specific times.)
Also in September, group field trips bring nearly 1400 students
to learn first-hand about how food is grown as they take hayrides
through the orchard, past berry patches and pumpkin patches and
melon patches, corn fields and rows of tomatoes.
Our annual “Harvest Festival” is held the second weekend
of October. Come, join the fun!
We grow tons of pumpkins: big & small, tall & short, and
as orange as the sun can make them. And, on weekends (except the
in October, hop onto one of our hayrides to the Pumpkin Patch to
pick your own pumpkin. G-R-E-A-T FUN!!
The month of December brings
snow and beautiful Ohio Christmas trees available for purchase
to the farm. And Mama Bear, Papa Bear and our worker Bears
beautiful gift baskets filled
with the finest fruits and goodies for your Holiday giving. In
the kitchen, Baker Bear is baking hundreds
of dozens of fabulous Christmas cookies - she even uses real butter
in them just like Grandma Bear did years ago!
After December 24th,
we Bears hibernate for the winter months. In April, we reappear
to bring you the most beautiful flowers & hanging baskets
to make your home & yard come alive again.
