Meet the Machines and Summer Picnic

Looking for more cool stuff to do?
We've got tons more fun events and programs in your area – sign up for our monthly enews here!

Balers and bucket loaders and harrows, oh my! Pack a picnic and spend a summer evening at Appleton Farms meeting our machines. You'll get to climb aboard backhoes, check out manure spreaders and try out the view from our tractors. Afterwards, enjoy music and your picnic brought from home in the stone paddock. When you’ve gotten your fill of machines try your hand at some lawn games or get your face painted. Also make sure to say hello to our goats, sheep, and bunnies in the barnyard! Limited picnic tables will be available, but feel free to bring your own lawn chairs or blankets! We'll have free lemonade and water available for all. Ice cream will be available for sale.
