Hayrides & Bonfires

Looking for a unique way to get together with friends, family members or co-workers?  Then look no further!  A Hayride and Bonfire at Butler’s Orchard is your answer!  Enjoy a tractor driven hayride under the stars over the rolling hills of our 300 acre farm.  You and your guests will then gather around a crackling bonfire where you can enjoy roasting hotdogs and making s’mores!  Your group can sing songs, play games, tell stories or just socialize and enjoy the stars and the open night air.

Up to 30 people (under age 1 not counted).  It includes a 35-minute Hayride, a Bonfire with enough wood to burn for approximately 2 hours, a picnic table at your Bonfire Site and 1 crisp apple (September thru November) per guest.  Your site is yours until 11:00 pm.  $10/person for additional guests to join you at your bonfire only, they will not be permitted on the Hayride as the wagon accommodates only 30 people.  An additional wagon can be added for $375 ($425 Peak).
