Harvest Season at Fair Oaks Farm

Seasons in Indiana are all felt to the extreme, and Fall/Indiana Harvest season is no different. Unarguably, some might state that it’s the best season we get around here in Greater Lafayette, IN. Beautiful colors fill the trees and wooded areas, abundance of fresh produce comes in the form of apples and pumpkins, crisp mornings and evenings, and outdoor festivities galore are just a few reasons why Fall makes the top of this list. While most Greater Lafayette, IN Fall festivals have unfortunately been cancelled for this season, do not fret! Hoosiers all over the state are getting the creative juices flowing, and we can’t love it enough. Let’s begin with our friends at Fair Oaks Farm. Exploring their meticulously maintained grounds is a treat any time of year, but here are some simple things they’ve got up their sleeve for the 2020 Harvest Season!

The Apple Orchard

The main attraction. Come anytime during the week to visit the apple orchard at Fair Oaks Farm. Here are the apple orchard specs from the website.

We’ll be serving beer, wine, seasonal cocktails and non-alcoholic and kid-friendly beverages for all your apple-picking, nature-strolling, thirst-quenching needs!
Our Pub is located in the orchard, and open Saturdays and Sundays from 11 am – 5 pm (weather dependent). Enjoy social distancing with face masks required while ordering.”
