A family orchard lights up the Hudson Valley with a festival


There’s nothing quite like summer in the Hudson Valley. From hiking, biking, fishing, exploring and seeing great views, there’s something for everyone.

The views of the Hudson Valley are unlike anywhere else in the world. Sometimes I drive past hills with a red barn and can almost picture that exact scene in a timeline. From blue skies and green grass, every day can seem like something out of a painting.

A beautiful flower orchard hosts a festival in the Hudson Valley.

Which flower do you consider the happiest? Sunflowers are bright and cheerful, they are a perfect gift to give someone or even to experience for yourself. Imagine having the opportunity to be in fields of sunflowers for a day?

Barton Orchards hosts its 4th Annual Sunflower Festival in Poughquag, NY.

This family orchard lights up the Hudson Valley every year. You may have spotted a photo of their sunflower fields on social media or you were lucky enough to experience it for yourself. Barton Orchards is known for many things, but most importantly, for being a 175 apple orchard that also has an on-site vegetable farm. From wagon rides to their famous apple cider donuts, an adventure in the sunflower field, a visit to their petting zoo and air-conditioned tap room, there’s something for everyone in the family. There will also be live music on site.

Did someone say Slip n’ Slide?

The Slip n’ Slide will be open, weather permitting. In their air-conditioned bar there is a wide variety of local craft beers, wines and ciders to try. Food options are available on-site and be sure to stop by their craft vendor stalls to stock up on goodies. They also have a farmers market that offers local produce and produce for purchase.

Looking for something to do this weekend? Barton Orchards has over 100,000 sunflowers to view.

There are around 100,000 sunflowers to see, cut your own and take some Instagram-worthy photos. Barton Orchards is also dog friendly, be sure to bring your furry baby with you as well.
