Ginger Gold apples will be available first. After Ginger Gold we’ll be waiting on Gala Red and Macintosh to be ready. PYO will be available week days only. There will be no weekend picking at this time. Bring your walking shoes this year! In accordance with the new guidelines put in place by the CDC and Connecticut Department of agriculture we will not be transporting you by tractor. You’ll be hoofing it! Those of you who know us know that our orchard is not flat. So, bring your walking shoes and your “can-do” spirit! We’ll be with you every step of the way. For those of you who aren’t up for an orchard hike, we’ll be stocking the market and our weekend outdoor farm market with freshly harvested apples for pick-up.
Oink, Moo, Cock-a-doodle-doo, Our barnyard friends welcome you! Kids and adults all love to visit Silverman’s rustic animal farm! See, pet, and feed all sorts of unusual animals, including buffalo, llamas, alpacas, sheep, goats, fallow deer, emus, and long-horn cattle. Picnic tables are available in the park area. Washing stations and outdoor port-a-potty facilities are on the premises. There is an admission fee.
The farm market is always stocked with up to 16 varieties of our famous fresh-baked pies. Come taste our famous apple cider donuts, made daily with Silverman’s own fresh apple cider. Our Apple Cider has no added sugar. The only ingredients are our fresh-picked apples! Did you know that the taste of cider changes throughout the season depending on the blend of apples being harvested?! We have a delicious assortment of cookies and desserts baked daily on the farm. The country farm market offers many New England gifts and preserves, jams, jellies, specialty sauces, and condiments. Silverman’s Farm boasts a fine selection of local honey and syrups.
Pumpkin Patch (check back for 2020 updates)
Fall Fest is an annual tradition at Silverman’s. Fall foliage sets the backdrop for colorful displays of “New England” squashes, gourds and Indian corn. Haybales and cornstalks provide a vivid backdrop for unusual photo opportunities. Residents from the tri-state area have been coming to the farm for many years to win a free pumpkin! Before purchase, every customer may guess the weight of each pumpkin before being brought to the scale. If the guess is within 2 oz. either way, the pumpkin is free regardless of size. We give away thousands of free pumpkins each year! Don’t miss our famous “Cereal Bowl” for kids! Kids (and grownups, too) love our giant cereal bowl, where they get to play, explore hay-bale tunnels, and make “corn angels.” Each year the cereal bowl helps bring awareness to a worthy cause.
