Pumpkin Picking School Tour

There is nothing quite like visiting your local orchard in the fall. So grab your group and head out to our Millstadt Farm in September and October to enjoy all the things you love most about autumn.

There’s nothing better than spending a day outdoors, exploring and seeing how things grow. Everyone will ride our tractor & wagon to the pumpkin patch to pick the perfect pumpkin. There are so many to choose from ensuring each person will find exactly what they are looking for. Once back, enjoy a delicious sample of our freshly pressed apple cider. Make sure you save time to enjoy our fun farm. The attractions kids can’t get enough of include: Pig Races, Pumpkin Canon Show, 70-ft underground Slide, Push Pedal Trikes, and the loveable animals to name a few.
