The Fun Never Stops!
The Farm is open every weekend from 10:00 - 5:00.
U–Pick season at Lookout Farm means more than apple picking alone. There’s a whole day’s worth of activities sure to entertain visitors of all ages. Ride our train through our orchards, spend the afternoon in our Children’s Play Area, have fun climbing the hay pyramid, see our farm animals, take a turn on the moon bounce, enjoy the live children's weekend entertainment, run through the burlap maze, get your face painted, take a spin on our Caterpillar ride, and enjoy our weekend pony and camel rides (September + October; additional charge).
Can you find your way through our handmade burlap maze? This challenging attraction is sure to be a hit, and your friends and family can watch from atop the Hay Play Pyramid to see who is winning the race. First one to the other side buys the gelato!
Let the kids take a spin on the Caterpillar ride, a rubber–tire train that takes you along a scenic path around the Children’s Play Area. This is perfect for 3–10 year–olds and each ride takes about 5 minutes. * Sorry, no adults on the caterpillar.
Hay is for horses. But this hay is for anyone who loves to climb! This safe play area, made out of 400 hay bales, is located at the Children's Play Area . To make it even more fun this year, you can watch those making their way through the new burlap maze from the tip top of the pyramid!
Our trains transport happy customers through our acres and acres of fruit daily during U–Pick season. These unique, environmentally friendly rubber–tire trains were imported directly from a company in Italy. Trains board at the red U–Pick barn, and our tour guides announce the different stops and what’s pickin’. You can get on and off as often as you would like; see our map for the train route.

Children’s Play Area
Tag — you’re it! From the slide to the seesaw sheep to the climbing area dubbed the “Wiggley Worm,” there are hours of fun to be had on this playground for the kids. Stop by the concession area to grab a hotdog or just a snack, then relax a little on one of our cozy picnic benches while the children have the time of their lives. In the fall, our full BBQ snack bar is available with hamburgs, hotdogs, grilled chicken and other yummy treats.
Our petting zoo (open September - October) is located by the Children’s Play Area. Our animals are all very friendly and love to interact with children. Kids (and adults) of all ages will enjoy spending time here! Meet and pet our rabbits, sheep, goats, donkeys and cows.
Pony and Camel Rides
It’s not as if U–Pick season weren’t enough fun on its own. But throw in some pony and camel rides, and the fun is over–the–top! All the ponies and camels are well–maintained and hand–lead. This special treat is perfect for children ages 3–10 years.
Each ride takes about five minutes, and young children may need an adult to walk alongside them. Pony and camel rides are available on weekends in September and October (additional charge) at Children’s Play Area.
