Reserved Evening Hayrides
Private Evening Hayrides can be reserved for any evening, all year long, weather permitting.
Evening hayrides offer groups a chance to enjoy the country for an evening of wholesome entertainment away from the fast pace of today's lifestyle. The tractor slowly pulls the wagon on an easy-going ride for approximately 30 minutes. Surrounded by rolling hills and tranquil orchards, the group can enjoy the stars, constellations and the moon away from the bright lights of the city. Following the hayride, your group will gather around a blazing campfire for 45 minutes. The campfire is perfect for roasting hot dogs or toasting marshmallows. Linvilla provides the fire, picnic tables, marshmallows, sticks & 2 gallons of cider per wagon. Feel free to bring hot dogs or other food. Food can be left in your cars during your hayride because the campfire is just a minute's walk from the parking area.
