Pick, Carve, Repeat.

When October began, we went full speed on pumpkin spirit, and we haven’t stopped since. We can’t help ourselves! One post just isn’t enough to spread all the good pumpkin news. Let’s rehash: So far we’ve told you about all the fun at our pumpkin patch, the important message we support from our partner Spookley […]

Pumpkin Spice Makes Everything Nice

We’re pumpkin crazy. Needless to say, it started long before this pumpkin spice business. Who knew a particular collection of complimentary flavors could ruffle so many feathers? It seems most people are either for pumpkin spice or against it. We don’t have an official position on the subject. All we’ll say is if it involves […]

Meet You at the Patch!

Are you as excited about October as we are? It’s a unique time of year because of its connection to farming. How so? Hayrides and pumpkins, of course. You can’t have either without a farm! We’re ready for a month of carving toothy orange smiles and makin’ tracks to the patch. Our pumpkin patch is […]

Fall Fun for Everyone!

Fall’s familiar coziness continues. We’re sipping hot apple cider, snacking on baked goods from the market, and smiling at all the children bounding through the pumpkin patch. As October comes to an end, we look forward to more fun at the farm. After Halloween, we keep the wagon wheels turnin’ with group bonfire hayrides. Grab […]

Come Visit Us This Fall!

So far September is comin’ through with fall goodness. Warm colors decorate the trees and cool breezes zip through the air. The apples are crisp, the dough is rising, and produce bins are overflowing. The farm is abuzz with preparation for all the upcoming fun. What’s in store? One more Bluegrass Weekend for the season, […]

Five Fall Faves

Is it just us or can you practically taste all the good cooking in the air? It’s that time of year. Ovens are fired up for bread baking and pie making. Jars are prepped for canning peaches and pears. Pots are brimming with soup and casseroles are bubbling over. Food is a uniting force. For […]

Crispy, Crunchy Apples Have Arrived!

It’s fall. The farm is bursting with apples. Lots of crisp, juicy apples. Eat ‘em raw. Put ‘em in a pie. Dip ‘em. Sauce ‘em. They love to adorn salads. They make a mean salsa. (Never tried apple salsa? Do it now.) They’ve been known to wrap up in a crepe next to a slice […]

Get in the Pits!

It’s August. It’s steamy. It’s the pits! Except the pits at the farm are ones you won’t want to miss. Confused? August is all about pitted fruits, also known as stone fruits: freestone peaches, nectarines, plums, and white peaches. We’re harvesting these beauties all month. Stone fruits are often overlooked for berries, which are more […]

Where the Buffalo Roam

We love our home state and try to celebrate its history and our heritage in as many ways as possible at the farm. The addition of a bison herd was one of these ways. These magnificent creatures represent the bison that were a natural part of the state’s fauna centuries ago. The first bison arrived […]

What a Family Farm is Made Of

The word family means a lot to us at Orr Farm Market. After all, it’s why we’re here. The farm and market you know today grew from a 60-acre orchard purchased in 1954 by George S. Orr Jr. After his passing, his wife, children, and grandchildren took over operations and helped guide the business to […]
