Alstede Farm is geared to all ages. From adults to small children, there is a lot to do when spending a day at the farm. The entrance fee for picking your own fruits and vegetables includes a tractor ride which transports you out to the fields. We arrived on a weekday (weekdays are Monday through Thursday) sometime between 9 and 11 a.m., whatever we paid for entrance to the picking field we got back as a credit toward the fruits and vegetables we picked. We visited in the summer and picked a variety of vegetables, peaches and apples.
Alstede has a variety of fruits and vegetables to pick depending on the season. On the website there is a list of what fruits and vegetables are ready to be picked. There are also lots of farm animals to enjoy petting and feeding such as horses, goats, donkeys, sheep, cows, chickens, ducks, turkeys, and rabbits. The pile of hay bales are lots of fun for kids to climb on. There are also plenty of picnic tables in order to enjoy a snack or lunch. When we visited there was a sunflower maze and it was very enjoyable. In the fall there is a large corn maze to navigate your way out of. The maze is included in the general admission for picking fruits and vegetables.
The moon bounce, tractor train ride and pony rides are fun farm activities for children that are not included in the general admission but can be paid for separately.
