Hop Aboard a Hayride at Butler’s Orchard in Germantown

The leaves are changing color, there’s a little chill in the air, and the days are getting shorter. At Butler’s Orchard in Germantown, that can only mean one thing: it’s pumpkin season! If you’re ready to spend some time in the pumpkin patch, can choose one of two family-friendly ways to celebrate the autumn months in the fresh air. On weekdays from 9:30 to 3:30, you can reserve a space for a self-guided harvest day full of activities. For a fee of $7.50 per person, you’ll get a pumpkin, a crisp Butler’s apple, and access to the straw maze. On the weekends, $12 will get you everything available on a harvest day, plus a jumping pad, hayride, and u-pick apples.

Local families and school groups have been coming to this family farm for generations, so whether you’re carrying on the tradition or starting a new one, you’ll have plenty of company at Butler’s.
