Art In the Orchard

Art In the Orchard, open all day from August 15 - October 31, 2015, is a walking sculpture trail which winds through our fruit gardens.  This third bienniel exhibition features the work of 28 selected sculptors. The self-guided trail is about a half-mile long.  A walk through the labyrinth adds about a quarter mile. Closed on Monday (except holidays).

  • Please wear shoes and clothing appropriate for walking around farm fields and trails.
  • Well behaved and leashed dogs may come to the sculpture trail but please no dogs in the PYO fruit areas.
  • There is no charge for parking.  A donation of $5 per person or $20 per family or group is suggested. The money is given to the artists as an honorarium and to cover their expenses.

The trail is a great destination for a family visit.  Walking in the good air, high-minded sculpture, exceptional views, pick-your-own apples.  Bring your friends from out-of-town and show them how we roll in the Happy Valley.  Many people make an afternoon of it, bringing a picnic basket, lounging among the trees.
