Hey Y'all! Did you realize that we've only got three more weeks of regular fall activities left at HVO for 2023? Well, don't panic! Just keep reading to get the most out of your fall visit to HVO!
There's no better time than now to grab a cup of steaming hot cider from our market and head over to the pumpkin patch for an unforgettable hayride. For just $5 per person, you can enjoy a 15-minute ride that provides a fantastic overview of our farm and sets the perfect tone for your visit at HVO. Our hayrides are available exclusively on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and the final day to catch a ride on one of our tractors is October 29, 2023!
A visit to our market is an absolute must on your next HVO adventure. Our charming barn, with over a century of history, radiates its rustic appeal. Inside, you'll discover a treasure trove of fall delights, including fall decorations, jams, jellies, local honey, pickles, caramel apples, apple cider and a delightful bakery counter. To best serve all y'all, we source most of our baked goods from talented locals who create the most mouthwatering treats. Our kitchen, meanwhile, is dedicated to serving up our homemade chicken & dumplings, chili, and other savory selections.
Step into our taprooms, The Crate Room and the Olde Grain Bin (OGB), where you'll find a rotating selection of fall taps and special fall "Croptails" (our playful name for cocktails). Some of our staff's personal favorites include the Caramel Apple Mule, Cider Spritzer (as pictured on the left), and Bucks Bourbon Float!
Our weekend events are open to all, free of any admission charge. We've got balloon artists and face painters to keep the kids entertained, and don't miss out on the chance to top your own caramel apple nachos—a whole granny smith apple, cut up and drizzled with caramel and your choice of toppings! You can also savor delicious bites from food trucks, enjoy live music, and explore other themed treats. Be sure to check
out our upcoming events to plan your visit.
Relax by our cozy firepits, which are available for your enjoyment. You're welcome to bring your firewood if you like, but we also have a stack of firewood on hand, available on a donation basis. These spots are quite popular on the lawn, especially in the evening. If you're hoping to snag a firepit and stick around for live music on Friday or Saturday night, be sure to arrive early to secure your spot (we don't accept reservations). And remember to bring some lawn chairs, as our patio seating is limited.
Our delightful pumpkin patch is open for picking during any of our regular operating hours, and it's conveniently located right next to our grass parking area. On weekends, our friendly team members will be stationed by the field to get you settled up. If you visit us during the week, feel free to bring your pumpkin into the market barn, where our team will be happy to check you out and ensure you take home the perfect pumpkin for your fall festivities.
We've got one more workshop with our friends at Regenerate Garden Co. coming your way this season. On October 26, 6:30-8:30pm enjoy good company and interesting conversation as you build a beautiful piece of living artwork. Come solo or make it a date night or friend date!

We can't wait to share the remainder of the fall season with you, and we hope to see you soon at HVO!
