A hospitable horticultural staff oversees Warbington Farms’ thriving 300 acres, which sprout Christmas trees, seasonal activities, and families each winter. Quartets ramble through rows of firs ($48–$125) looking for the perfect tree, whose verdant boughs will elegantly shield carefully wrapped presents such as Santa’s fire-insurance policy. A tractor-pulled hayride glides through the farm’s winter scenery, with guests taking in the farm’s chilly charm while sipping steamy hot chocolates. Gooey bites of freshly prepared s’mores fuel tykes as they glide down the farm’s 28-foot inflatable slide, joyously learning about gravity without apple fighting with Newton’s ghost.
Patrons can also opt to take home some of the farm’s homegrown fare, including succulent peaches ($1.29/lb.), ripened corn ($0.50 each), or savory squash ($0.99/lb.).
Farm bells chime Wednesday–Friday from noon to 7 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m.
A hayride rolls across 50 of Warbington Farms' 300-acres. Riders peer over the side as the tractor turns straight into a pasture where cattle graze and autograph cartons of milk. At the end of this agricultural journey, visitors can enjoy walks through the crisp autumn air, pet farm animals, and stock up on fresh eggs, jams, and ciders. Though a working farm behind the scenes, Warbington Farms prides itself most on creating these sorts of experiences for visitors. In Autumn, Pumpkin Palooza fills the grounds with live music and fall activities, including an inflatable slide and a sandbox filled with corn. Winter brings Christmas trees and visits from Santa, and the spring strawberry festival lets visitors pick their own morsels of fresh fruit.
