Due to the ongoing Pandemic, only the corn maze, sunflower field, and pumpkin picking is open to the general public. This includes a Hayride to the Corn Maze and back to the parking lot. Our picnic areas, along with other activities are available for Birthday parties, family reunions, and other gatherings. Parties include a jump on the pillow bounce, pallet maze, tractor and truck playground, and corn cannons. But the fun doesn’t end there! Take a private hayride down to our all-new 5-acre corn maze, and walk through the sunflower field. You can also pick pumpkins for an additional fee.

Visit the friendly Witch's House in the woods. She tells stories, jokes and gives all of the kids a Halloween treat! Mon thru Thurs the hayride ends at a campfire.  Fri, Sat, or Sun no campfire will be provided.  Due to COVID we will not be offering marshmallows or cider.

Visitors are expected to wear face masks and practice social distancing. 

Every September, Peddler’s Village hosts a famous scarecrow display that brings visitors from around the world. For seven fun-filled weeks, scores of scarecrows grace the winding pathways of the sweeping, autumn-tinted Village property. Some are inspired by famous characters, some are humorous, some are meant to be scary – but all of them are carefully handmade and contributed by Philly-area residents and organizations

Pumpkinland is open from mid-September through early November and takes center stage at Linvilla Orchards. Larger than life figures and scarecrows illustrate the legends and lore of the harvest season, featuring local history and some of the many stories of pumpkins and apples.
