No matter when you visit, there’s always something to enjoy.
Fall Family Fun:
October brings traditional, no-scare family fun throughout the farm. A Corn Maze, Pumpkin Patch, and Hayrack Rides will appeal to all ages. You can also savor the flavors of fall—including apple pies, hand-dipped caramel apples and apple cider, pressed on-site.
Explore the Tree Adventure:
Discover something new every season at Arbor Day Farm Tree Adventure—an award-winning nature-themed attraction and the starting point of your Arbor Day Farm experience.
Travel the Tree House Trail:
Identify animal prints, take in the view from a 50-foot-tall treehouse, watch a hive of honeybees in action and enjoy a lovely walk among the trees.
Explore South Table Creek Trail:
This 2/3-mile wood-chipped trail leads you along South Table Creek and into the heart of the forest. Two rustic timber bridges help connect you to interactive exhibits, sensory experiences, scenic vistas and the Exploratory Tree House.
Play and learn in two Nature Explore Classrooms:
Have fun building, creating, and imagining. Then start a forest melody on a giant marimba big enough for 20 active hands. These carefully designed spaces help connect young children with the natural world through play.
Take in “Trees in the Movies”:
This enjoyable 15–20 minute compilation of 90 scenes from 66 classic movies in which trees have starring roles. And just outside the theatre, interactive tree-themed kiosks provide a fun and educational experience for all age.
