Johnny Popper Farm Tours @ Davison Orchards
See for yourself how your food is grown!
Taking a ride through the farm on "Johnny Popper Train" is a fun, interactive way for you to experience our working farm.
Something new to discover in every season on the farm. The tour takes you by apple trees, plum trees and peach trees as well as tomatoes, peppers, corn, pumpkins and more. A traditional tour involves one stop where one of our farmers will show you the fields and the orchards and you can see, touch, smell (and sometimes even taste!) one of our in-season crops. The focus of the tour changes as the seasons do, but all year long our Farm Tours are a chance to have some fun while you learn the story behind your food.
Fun for all ages
Our tours have been designed with families in mind. Kids love to ride in the tractor drawn "train" made of apple bins. Parents appreciate the covered, padded seating and the fact that the kids and adults alike learn something new about their food and how it's grown.
Ticket Prices are $6 for adults (13 yrs and older), and $4 for children (2-12 yrs) and do not need to be reserved in advance - just come on up, buy a ticket, and enjoy your tour! We do recommend that groups reserve in advance to ensure enough seating is available on the tour.

Family Daze in the Corn Maze @ Historic O'Keefe Ranch
Bring the whole family for great fall activities at the O’Keefe Ranch. A brand new maze will be open and it's guaranteed to entertain with plenty of twists and turns and spooky scenes around every corner. Some of the historic buildings will be open and decorated and the General Store will be selling good ol’ fashioned Halloween candy. Kids can enjoy a run through the maze, try a pony or tractor ride, take part in an art activity, or a climb in the giant spider web. Grab a snack at one of the food trucks available to keep your energy going all day long! The cost is $10 per person or $30 for a family (up to 5 people).
This is a family friendly event – the corn maze is spooky but it does not have live actors, and the seasonal décor in the buildings is suitable for children to explore.

Deep in the heart of New York's ultra-orthodox Hasidic Jewish community, Menashe--a kind, hapless grocery store clerk--struggles to make ends meet and responsibly parent his young son, Rieven, following his wife Leah's death. Tradition prohibits Menashe from raising his son alone, so Rieven's strict uncle adopts him, leaving Menashe heartbroken. Meanwhile, though Menashe seems to bungle every challenge in his path, his rabbi grants him one special week with Rieven before Leah's memorial. It's his chance to prove himself a suitable man of faith and fatherhood, and restore respect among his doubters.
