Fruit Ridge Hayrides offers horse drawn hayrides/sleigh rides year round for groups. Our huge Belgian draft horses, Zeke and Zoey, pull the wagon from the barn, down through the woods and back up through our apple orchard. The ride usually last about one hour and can be combined with a one hour campfire either before or after the ride. The wagon holds 20-30 people and is wheel chair accessible. The sleigh holds 10-12 people. Rides are offered during daylight hours only and they do depend on the weather. (Zeke and Zoey don’t like to be out in the rain any more than we do). If the trails are too wet or icy for the horses, you will be notified and your party will be rescheduled.
Get lost in our Maize Quest corn maze during September and October. You will find 10 acres of fun and farm education for all ages with three interactive games and hundreds of twists and turns to get lost in. A great team building activity for groups.
