Picnic Area

We have a beautiful picnic area that can be reserved for private parties based on availability.  Four picnic tables, located under the trees, near the pumpkins and hay rides.  We ask that you dispose of all paper plates, wrapping paper, decorations, etc. before you depart.   Alcohol is not permitted at any time. We do not arrange for or provide food or beverage catering, but recommend the following catering options which offer outstanding quality, are close by and can deliver to meet your requirements (call to verify delivery hours).  

All guests are welcome to use the picnic area free of charge on any day, on a first come, first served basis, understanding that private parties may require the use of the space.
