Hay Rides

Are you looking for a location for your family reunion, business picnic or organization´s activity? We have small picnic shelters and one large pavilion in addition to a barn and sugarhouse where groups can relax and enjoy an afternoon or evening in the country. These facilities are available from May through November with the exception of the large pavilion, which is only available spring and summer. Whether or not you choose a pleasant summer day or a crisp fall night, these gatherings in the country can be a delightful and easy way to entertain.

Hayrides at Patterson Fruit FarmIn all cases you bring anything from hot dogs and marshmallows to a catered dinner along with all the supplies you need to prepare the food you've brought. We supply the picnic tables, a lighted bonfire with additional wood for keeping the fire going, portajohns, and lantern lighting. A tractor will pull the wagons through a 1/2-hour trip around our farm. While the barn, sugarhouse and large pavilion are accessible by car, the smaller shelters are dependent on the hayride to deliver you to and from the parking area. That means you must all arrive and leave together in order to use one of the small shelters. Weather related cancellations can be made the day of the event. Return of the deposit depends entirely on weather. There is no specific time constraint to your event unless it bridges afternoon and evening. At that point we will negotiate. Evening events end at 11:30 p.m. Out of deference to our neighbors, there is NO music with amplification. Both music and the option of alcohol must be discussed with the Patterson's before the event is scheduled.

A deposit must be received immediately upon scheduling to guarantee your reservation. We accept Master Card or Visa, check and cash. Final payment is due at the time of the event. There is no refund for rainy weather events held in the sugarhouse or barn. Prices include everyone attending except infants two years old and younger who are free. A 5 foot charcoal grill is available for a $50.00 rental fee (you provide the charcoal). A mushroom heater is also available for $50.00. Clambakes cost an additional $50.00. Our areas close at 11:30 p.m.

We look forward to helping you plan your special event at Patterson´s! For information it is best to email nancy@pattersonfarm.com or call 440-729-9809.
