Kite Day is a perfect time to explore the farm during our spring festival – Saturday, April 30 & Sunday, May 1 – 10:00 am – 5:00 pm. 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 sheep will be shorn on Sunday and the children can take home a piece of real fleece.   On Saturday Princeton Morris Dancers will perform traditional May Day dances. Enjoy live music all weekend. On Saturday the tunes of Tookany Creek and on Sunday, listen to Chickens N Such. 

Take a pony ride. Join in the fun of old-fashioned games and children’s activities in the barnyard such as Hopscotch, hula hoop the horse – have a great time playing on the farm. Our special children play houses will be open, Junior Mechanic Shop and Little Tots Farm Store.  Don’t miss having have a hop in the Hippity Hop Corral or taking a duck for Duckie Race. 

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. 

Adults can enjoy a visit to our Wine Orchard where Terhune’s own 18 varieties of wine are available for tasting under the 100 year old apple trees.  Tasting flights, wine by the glass and wine slushie will be available to toast Spring.

There is nothing like spring on the farm. Join us this spring weekend to enjoy our freshly planted fields, fruit trees and flowers blooming, the fresh air and beauty of all the season has to offer outdoors.
