Ride Through an Orchard Full of Apple Blossoms in a Horse-Drawn Carriage

Come enjoy a one-hour horse-drawn carriage tour at Silvershire Farm just a 15 minute drive north of downtown Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.

Ride with us through the picturesque countryside landscapes and orchards of Adams County.  In the spring witness the beauty of the orchards as the trees begin to blossom.  In the fall view the majestic colors of the mountains and surrounding hills as the trees change to yellows, ambers, and scarlets of the fall.  The rest of the year enjoy the beauty of the rolling hills, countryside fields, and orchards as they begin to fill up with various fruits and crops in preparation for harvest.  Enjoy the leisurely and relaxing pace of your carriage as it is pulled by two gentle giants, our Shire draft horses.  Along the way you will also see an Elk herd as well as a variety of other animals.  We will narrate your journey with a history of the area during the Civil War Battle at Gettysburg, as well as that of the orchards and the history of the Shire horse.  At the end of your one-hour ride, you can meet and take pictures with your team.   If you choose, you can meet the rest of the horses on the farm and feed all of them treats. Kids and adults like this part of the tour.
