About Fire Pit Picnic at Appleton Farms

Enjoy the sights and sounds of spring on the farm as you make s’mores and memories around a fire pit at Appleton.

Your ticket, good for up to 6 people, gets you two hours at one of our fire pits, complete with benches for seating (although you are welcome to bring your own seating as well), wood for burning and a kit with supplies for making s’mores. Food will be available to purchase, including a variety of homemade food items, such as soups or salads, fresh baked pretzels or breads, and an assortment of baked goods, all from our own Appleton Farms Kitchen. Bringing your own food is also permitted.

Each group must be one that is socially distancing together. Other Covid-19 regulations must be followed, including wearing face coverings when not seated at your fire pit and not coming to the farm if you are experiencing symptoms.
