Squeeze-Your-Own Apple Cider -Our Squeeze-Your-Own Apple Cider is a perennial favorite at Bill's Berry Farm. Buy a box of juice apples and jugs and use our grinder and presses to make 3 gallons of fresh squeezed sweet cider. Our friendly helpers are always on hand to guide you through the process, which takes about 30-40 minutes, and answer your questions. You will love the taste of fresh juice straight from the apples! $25 for a 40Ib box of apples and 3 jugs (makes approx. 3 gallons).
5 Acre Barnyard Mystery Corn Maze - Our Barnyard Mystery Corn Maze is unique to Bill's Berry Farm. It is a family friendly 'who-done-it' mystery similar to the board game CLUE. With your clue pass book in hand you will search our maze for the 6 clue posts to reveal which suspected Farm Animal kidnapped Farmer Bill, what Weapon was used, and Where on the farm the kidnapping was done. Make teams with your family or friends and race to see who can solve the mystery first! Fun for all ages! Admission to corn maze is included in the FarmLAND entrance fee.
Apple Scavenger Hunt - Pick up a clue sheet inside FarmLAND and search the farm for 10 clue signs to find our 'Which Apple Fell Far from the Tree'. Expert witnesses, such as the horse, the chicken and the dog will help you on your way. Complete the card and take it to the Farm Store or Fall Concessions for a piece of candy! Clues change each month so you can play in September and again in October. Fee: included in FarmLAND wristband.
