Hayrides create great group and family memories!

There is hardly anything that can beat the fun of an old fashion hayride through our 120 acre orchard.  Memories are created and cherished by everyone, and you'll certainly remember your hayride at Royal Oak Farm.  Your group will enjoy an antique tractor-driven hay ride of approx. 30 minutes while touring the orchard.  Each member of the group will also pick 2 apples along the way and upon return will have a roaring bonfire to enjoy.  You will need to bring your own sticks if you want to bring marshmallows or hotdog's to roast over your bonfire!

Your group will also have free access to our petting zoo and play area after 5:30 p.m. which has plenty of picnic tables.  You can bring your own food/picnic or for a small catering fee, we can provide a hot dog picnic dinner.  Train and Carousel ride tokens are $3.00 each.  The tokens are not included in your Hayride fee but can be purchased separately.
