Kite Day at Terhune Orchards

Event Date: 05/06/2017 - 05/07/2017

Event Time: 10am to 5pm

Event Description

Kite Day is a perfect time to explore the farm during our spring festival. Bring your own kite or choose a ready-made kite from the wide selection in the store. Or better yet, make a “guaranteed to fly” kite. Whichever you choose, test fly your kite in our wide-open 10-acre pasture with all the farm animals looking on. We will have old-fashioned children’s games set up in our barnyard. Kids can play pin the tail on the piggy, blow bubbles, go “fishing”, give our bean bag toss a try, and more. Children can take a pony ride or get their face painted. Visit our animals, including Mexicali the horse, our dogs Apple and Peach, our cats, geese and chickens. On Sunday at 2 p.m., watch as our sheep are prepared for spring and shorn by Joel Markevey. Children can take home a souvenir piece of wool! See spring unfolding on a tractor-drawn wagon ride through the orchards. Our fields will be planted, our asparagus will be sprouting, our fruit trees and flowers will be blooming. Enjoy live country music with bands both Saturday and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. For all those hungry kite fliers, we’ll have lots of good country food - apples, cider, donuts, pies, chili, hot dogs, fresh grilled asparagus, salads, soup and all kinds of goodies. A d u l t s can taste our own wine in the Terhune Orchards Winery Tasting room. Parking at the farm. Admission to the festival area is $8, age 3 and up. No admission fee to farm store, or winery.
