As a child, trips to Linvilla Orchards was a great Halloween treat. We would pick out our own pumpkins, went on a hayride, and get a caramel covered apple from the market. You can still do those same things at Linvilla Orchards plus they keep expanding so you can do so much more! Linvilla Orchards is a great year round, go to place that every family should keep in mind. There is a great wood playground area, a section where you can feed the animals, a wonderful store with food and gifts, plus acres of land where you can pick your own fruit, pumpkins, Christmas trees and so much more.

My son and I last visited just before Easter as a play-date with my pregnant cousin, Alexis, and her son, Michael. As soon as we arrive, my son shouts “PUMPKINS”…clearly remembering our visit at Halloween with his little friends. The pumpkins have obviously been cleared in order to make way for everything Easter. Here are some pics from our fun filled play-date.
Our first stop was for a hayride to meet the Easter Bunny. You are driven through their expansive property and get to see all of the beautiful areas where you can pick your own…I never knew that peach trees where so beautiful.We sat at the front of the tractor and were the first to meet the big guy. Michael was eager to give the Easter Bunny a high five, while Gavin was a little leery of this gigantic bunny. (I was afraid of anyone in a costume as a child so he gets it honestly.) He was excited to get the goodie bag from the Easter Bunny’s helpful, which had yummy candy.
After was a little snack and trip to see the animals. There was a very nice family that was feeding this cow carrots and let us have a couple to feed her as well.Afterwards, little Michael had to take a nap so there was an adorable hug exchanged between the cousins and then Gavin was off to the play area.
Gavin loves the wood play area and darts from one area to another. I can not post images of all of the equipment because I did not get a signed release form for all of the kids that would’ve been in the shots. However, there are wooden airplanes, trains, tractors, ships…it goes on and on. Your kids will love it.
After the playground, we stop by the farm market, which has so many great treats. I picked up some fruits and vegetables for our house and had to keep myself from straying to some of the wonderful baked goods. Gavin likes to entertain himself while I shop with some of the great Thomas the Train toys.
The other part of the store that Gavin loves is the the baby chicks. Aren’t they cute?
The day end with a visit to see these lambs. The little sweater on the white lamb kills me.
There will be many more trips to Linvilla Orchards this year…esp since we moved so much closer. Our next trip will be to pick our own Strawberries once they are in season!
