There is nothing better than fall in Adams County. With the crisp, fresh air and great outdoor experiences, it is the perfect time to grab your family and friends and spend time outside. Check out these great open-air, pick-your-own opportunities for a fall you will not forget!
Looking for a place to kick off your fall celebrations? Head over to Fields of Adventure to pick out the perfect pumpkin for everyone in your family. If you are looking for even more fun, enjoy getting lost in their corn maze or adventure on to their zipline. You can even pick some sunflowers to take home when they are in season.
Known as Apple Country, Adams County is the perfect place to stock up on apples for baking, canning or just enjoying a snack. For a great afternoon date, start with apple picking at Boyer Nurseries & Orchards and then stop into Boyer Cellars to sample their award-winning wines and ciders. Families can enjoy a day of apple picking and get lost in their live evergreen hedge maze.
Nothing brightens up your day or your home like fresh flowers. Hollabaugh Bros. Inc. Fruit Farm and Market has cut-your-own flowers to help you create a perfect bouquet. While you are there, do not forget to purchase an apple cider donut milkshake or a delicious, homemade apple dumpling!
