Linvilla Orchards is fun for the whole family! Each season brings more things to see and do at Linvilla. Take a hayride through our fields and orchards; pick your own fresh fruit and veggies, climb aboard our passenger train, get your face painted like a princess or pirate; visit with the farm animals in the Barnyard, go fishing at Orchard Lake and play in our Playland Playground.
Been going here since I was 9. I take my children as well. I love this place. We go just about every year if we can.

Linvilla Orchards operates two private swim clubs: Knowlton and Hidden Hollow. Summer Memberships are available.
In 1914, Arthur Linvill and his mother Lydia purchased a dairy farm with an eighty-foot tall octagonal barn. The Linvills shipped fresh milk and cream to Swarthmore, but Arthur wanted to grow peaches. So they planted orchards and then sold the fruit from a horse-drawn wagon. With the increased use of automobiles, people started coming to the farm where the Linvill family sold their produce from the front porch of the farm house.
As the produce became more abundant, the farm became more popular and the Farm Market opened in the Octagonal Barn. Over the years a bakery and gift shop were added which complemented the operation. Neighbors from all over the Delaware Valley have been coming back ever since.
In 2002, the picturesque barn was destroyed in a fire, but the Linvill family hopes to rebuild the landmark on its original site some day. Arthur's son Paul, his wife Peg, and their children and grandchildren continue to operate Linvilla Orchards — staying faithful to the tradition that has made Linvilla such a great place to visit for over a century. The Linvills hope you'll be part of the next great era in Linvilla history.
