Fall is one of our customers’ favorite seasons to visit Hicks. Take a picture with Otto the Ghost*, enjoy a hayride down a decorated trail and visit with the farm animals. And while you’re here enjoy our fresh picked apples, fudge, roasted corn*, popcorn*, apple cider, candy apples and other fall treats! Our animated children’s story, featuring Otto the Ghost, leads children and adults through a new story each year that focuses on friendship, family and Halloween cheer. In addition, we encourage children and adults to grow their own pumpkins to enter in our giant pumpkin contest. During the week, we will bring your school group through all of the exciting events and they leave with a pumpkin and a fresh picked apple. Call for details.
