Lebanon farm offers fall fun

September 18, 2017 by  

Lebanon’s Hidden Valley Fruit is offering a number of ways to celebrate fall in the coming months.

The farm, which was begun in 1951, comprises 70 acres, on which the owners grow vegetables, fruits, and over 38 varieties of apples.

During the period early September to early November, there are a number of harvest festivals and Family Fun Days held at the farm. Recently, visitors enjoyed the Apple Daze Festival, but those who missed it have a chance to go to the Ohio Cider Fest. At this event, the farm will be serving cider donuts, Dutch apple-flavor frozen custard, and so-called ‘Thriller’ apples, which are coated with caramel and then topped with peanuts and chocolate.

In addition to these treats, visitors can take a hayride through the farm, pick their own pumpkins, go shopping for handcrafted gifts from craft vendors, have fun in a bounce house, get lost in a corn maze, and see barnyard animals.

The Cider Fest is slated for the weekend of October 7 and 8. Admission is free at the farm, which is on State Route 48 in Lebanon.

Such special occasions can be enhanced if organizers work with a flyer printing company to create a handout for visitors, listing the various events, vendors, and rides, including where they can be found and when they operate.
