Some of the activities at Pond Hill Farm’s Fall Festival cost a small fee, but you can do a lot with your family that’s low cost, and free as well. In addition to all the activities, there’s a small shack outside for buying snacks and cider. They even have a s’more kit available for purchase that can be cooked up at the cozy bonfire.
There’s wine, hard cider, and beer tasting at the cafe, Tasting Room, and the Tasting Barn. You can get your drink “to-go” in a plastic cup so you can take it with you as you walk the grounds or while you enjoy a hayride.
