If you look at the lineup of staff members at Butler's Orchard, you'll notice that most of them have something in common: their last name. That's because the family business that George and Shirley Butler began straight out of high school remains in the family today. A lot has changed since that first small farmstand, which only sold peaches, but the Butlers continue to carry on the family tradition of offering fresh produce, plus some family-friendly activities.
Come to the farm market if you're looking for fresh produce, baked goods, and locally sourced grocery items year-round. Depending on the season, you can also pick your own fruits, veggies, and flowers. Currently, the main crop at Butler's Orchard is the pumpkin. In fact, its 37th Annual Pumpkin Festival will unfold every Saturday and Sunday now through October 29th. From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., the orchard plays host to tons of autumn activities, from pumpkin picking to hayrides and pony rides.
