Pick your own apples, milk Buttercup the cow, see the pig races, or just sit back and enjoy the Bluegrass bands or clogging groups on the Hillcrest Stage. Jump for joy on the Giant Jumping Pillow and have fun at the playgrounds with giant slides. There will be pony rides, pedal cart and trike rides. Visit the Moonshine and Farmhouse Museums. Pet and feed  the baby farm animals in the petting farm. Hop aboard one of our tractor or mule drawn wagons for a ride through the orchard, over the giant catfish pond and through the woods to our new farm attractions, "Hillbilly Golf", a Cow Train and the children's "Apple Adventure" Museum.

If you've worked up an appetite, visit the Hillcrest bakery for fried apple pies, fritters and doughnuts. Stop by the food court for burgers, hotdogs, BBQ and pizza. Don't miss corn on the cob, boiled peanuts, fried oreos and funnel cakes. The large farm market is filled with fresh appes, cider, baskets, canned goods, local honey, and our own corn meal and grits.
