HILL CREEK FARMS - Grand Opening Event. www.hillcreekfarms.com
This is a great place. Worth the trip. Lots of expansion and improvements this year. The well-known Rastelli’s Market is now managing the store and it is jam-packed with food goods as never before, many made right in the kitchen at Hill Creek. HCF is now growing their own produce, filling the store. It is unlikely that you will find better cider donuts anywhere. A new year-round café with a full-service coffee bar and interesting menu have been added. Great food. There will soon be two Farm to Table Dinners every week. So come check it out. Eat in the café upstairs or get freshly prepared foods from the store to enjoy at a picnic table or dining tables under cover.
Primarily an orchard, during the season there are 12 varieties of apples, asian pears, plums, and cherries. The fruit trees are all dwarf varieties so you can pick without a ladder. Bring the kids. Lots of folks do. There is a playground, room to run around, kiddie tractor rides, hayrides, a fire pit, etc, and all are free during daytime events like this Grand Opening. When tree-fruit is in season, it’s easy to lift a child so they can pluck something right from the tree themselves
