"I love the early mornings out on my tractor preparing the soil, checking the fields," muses Farmer Pete. "We care about this land, the food it provides, the visitors growing family traditions." That care is evident to anyone who visits Barton Orchards. The farm?lovingly maintained by Farmer Pete, his dad, Bruce, and a staff of experts?produces a wealth of pick-your-own fruits and veggies that range from summery peaches and green tomatoes to fall staples such as pumpkins and Braeburn apples.
But produce is just the tip of the spading fork. Each fall, Barton Orchards beckons visitors to its corn maze, which was voted one of the Top 10 Corn Mazes for Families by Kidventurous. The maze, also featured in the New York Post, winds participants through 5 acres of cornstalk artwork and quizzes as they immerse themselves in the theme of the year. This year's theme is "Mazes in Movies" and will make reference to Harry Potter, The Maze Runner, and Labyrinth. In celebration of the fall season, Barton Orchards also hosts a haunted house and a fun park with a football pitch, slides, and trains.
