County Line Orchard embraces guests with outstretched branches that hold more than 20 varieties of apples and a pumpkin patch flush with the warm and welcoming colors of the autumn harvest. Friends and families can traverse an orange-tinted wonderland with unlimited access to harvest activities of all sorts, from Moo-Choo tractor rides to fruit-picking excursions in the orchard. Those who attempt to navigate the two 10-acre corn mazes are well advised to fill rucksacks with butter, as even steadfast explorers must occasionally use their teeth to hack a path through the profusion of twists and turns. Bellies not filled with raw corn can make room for the bakery’s famous homemade donuts (not included in this Groupon) or an apple snagged from one of five U-Pick fields to which Grouponers enjoy unfettered access. Pumpkins available for purchase make ideal jack-o'-lanterns or catapult fodder, though honey farmers beseech guests to aim all launches away from the orchard’s active beehives.
Gardeners Bruce and Aimee Johnson channel their shared passion for landscaping into Woodland Gardens' verdant acreage, which abounds with beautiful flora selected to appeal to both the avid collector and casual gardener. The thriving nursery ships out a stunning array of hostas and charming daylilies bred to ensure a uniformly brilliant color that only enhances nature’s subtle variations. The plants’ reliable blooms often last long into the autumn months, and their excellent table manners make them ideal for bouquet centerpieces. Though the online store features a vast selection of hostas and daylilies, a visit to the nursery—where Japanese maple trees grow alongside a host of rare and interesting plants—is a gift in its own right. Selections appeal to avid hosta and japanese maple collectors, as well as casual gardeners.
