High Flying Family Fun on Kite Day May 1 & 2
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, May 1 & 2 from 10am-5pm.
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. If we are in luck the apple trees will be in bloom, too.
Listen to the sounds of country music as your kite dance in the wind. Local bands will play from 12pm-4pm Saturday and Sunday. 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 – have a great time playing on the farm. Don’t miss having have a hop in the Hippity Hop Corral or taking splash in a Duckie Race.
Our sheep shearer, Joel Markevey, will shear our sheep in the barnyard on Sunday, May 2 at 2 p.m. Get to know some of our other animals in the barnyard while you visit. Meet our barnyard friends, dwarf Nigerian goats, donkeys and bunnies.
Hungry kite fliers will find farm fresh lunch and snacks at Pam’s Food Tent. Sample Terhune Orchards’ spring menu items including BBQ chicken, country style chili, salads and fresh baked pies. Our famous apple cider donuts and fresh pressed apple cider make every visit to the farm complete.
Adults can enjoy a visit to our Wine Orchard where Terhune’s own fourteen varieties of wine are available for tasting. Tasting flights, wine by the glass and wine slushie will be available to toast to Spring.
