Our annual tradition to welcome spring at Terhune Orchards is Kite Day. This soaring spring festival is a perfect time to explore the farm during one of its most beautiful seasons, April 30 & May 1 from 10am-5pm. The fruit trees are in bloom and it is a magical time here on the farm.
Children can use their imaginations to make and decorate their own kites. We use a kite design that is guaranteed to fly! Choose from a colorful assortment of pre-made kits in the form of birds, butterflies, and more. Or bring your favorite kite from home. Whichever kite you choose, there will be a rainbow of colors in every shape and size floating through the air above our orchards. What great fun to run through the pasture seeing how high your colorful creation will reach.
Have a great time playing on the farm in beautiful springtime. Take a pony ride. Join in the fun of old-fashioned games and children’s activities in the barnyard such as Hopscotch, hula hoop the horse.
