Evening, Private Bonfire Sites and Hayrides

Looking to have a fun, casual, outdoor get-together with friends, family members or co-workers?  A Private Bonfire Site at Butler’s Orchard is your answer. Add a private tractor driven hayride under the stars over the rolling hills of our 300 acre farm for more fun! You and your guests will enjoy a picture-worthy crackling bonfire where you can roast hot dogs and make s’mores!  Your group can socialize, enjoy the stars and the open night air at your own private space.

Each reservation starts with your own private Bonfire Site and goes from there!

There is a maximum of 50 people per reservation; if you have more than 50 people you must make additional reservations. If you make multiple reservations, we will work with you to provide a site area that can accommodate your entire group, you will not be split between sites.

You are welcome to bring your own food and beverages!

We have included enough firewood to last for 2-2 1/2 hours with your reservation. However, if you are planning to stay longer, we recommend adding extra firewood to your reservation to ensure that your fire will last throughout your event. Please make sure that you prepare to depart the Farm by 11:00 pm and leave your site clean. If you wish to stay past the closing time, additional time can be arranged and paid for before your reservation date. Regardless of what time your reservation starts, you can enjoy your private site until 11:00 pm when the Farm closes.

ARRIVAL INFORMATION FOR HOSTS AND GUESTS
Please plan to arrive at Butler’s Orchard 15 minutes before your reservation time to check in at the Farm Market parking lot. If your Reservation includes a Hayride, your ride is scheduled to BEGIN at your RESERVATION TIME. Hayrides will not be held to accommodate guests that arrive late. We have many sites on the Farm and you may not be the only group enjoying the Farm at the time of your reservation. You and your guests should check in 15 minutes before your reservation time using the name on the reservation; all will be given directions to the Site. We ask that you do not gather in the Farm Market parking lot but drive directly to your site.

Butler’s Orchard Policies

Cancellation and Rescheduling Policy:
A full refund is issued if you cancel 30 days or more before your reservation date; no fee if you choose to reschedule.
50% refund if you cancel 14-29 days before your reservation, no fee if you choose to reschedule.
No refund will be issued if you choose to cancel less than 14 days prior to your reservation. Rescheduling within 14 days of your reservation will be treated as a cancellation unless we are able to rebook your timeslot.

Weather Policy
Often, a rainy day will turn into a beautiful evening, so we encourage a wait and see approach when it comes to weather.  Wagons, hay and wood are all kept dry and ready to go!  We will typically decide on the day of your reservation if Bonfires and Hayrides need to be cancelled due to weather. If you have any questions concerning weather please call us. The Office is closed on Saturdays and Sundays, so please use option 3 to speak to the Market staff. If Butler’s decides your Hayride or Bonfire is cancelled on the day of your reservation due to weather, we will contact you and work with you to reschedule for another day or we can issue a full refund. If you do not hear from us, then the Farm is open and our staff will be expecting you. Refunds will not be issued if the Farm is open and there are no changes to the evening events schedule.

Butler’s Orchard reserves the right to request any individual or entire group to leave the premises.  Circumstances may include: behaving in a non-family friendly manner, endangering the health and safety of the Orchard’s patrons or employees, interfering/infringing on the rights of others, or damaging the grounds, its facilities and/or furnishings.

Group Hosts are responsible to restore any damage, other than normal wear and tear expected from the Guests activities, which you or your group may cause to any Butler’s Orchard property.

It is the Group Host’s responsibility to ensure that your event site is cleaned and returned to its original condition.  Groups will be charged an additional flat fee of $250 if Butler’s Orchard needs to clean after an event.  This is separate from, and in addition to, the above damages clause.

A Butler’s Orchard employee will extinguish all fires at closing time (11:00 pm) unless extended time has been pre-arranged through the office.
