Located in Yardley Pennsylvania, Shady Brook Farm offers fun activities for families all year long, but really thrives in autumn. During fall, Shady Brook hosts plenty of activities for all ages.


Fall is Shady Brook’s favorite time of year and is welcomeing people to visit for some good, old-fashioned farm fun.FallFest is at the center of Shady Brook’s seasonal entertainment with pumpkins, apple picking and more. Guests should purchase tickets ahead of time online and arrive during their selected timeslot. Once checked in, you are welcome to spend as much time roaming the farm as you desire.


Start your day by exploring the orchards to pick the perfect apples. Next, head to the pumpkin patch and pick out the pumpkin best for carving or as decoration.


Take a scenic wagon ride around the farm. Rides run continuously, day and night, during FallFest. After, head to the five-acre corn maze to see the family navigate their way out. For a little bit more of a challenge, visit the corn maze at night. Guests are encouraged to bring their own flashlights to find their way around the dark maze.


Make sure to check out this year’s new attraction, Eerie Illuminations. On weekends, experience the Halloween light show featuring Halloween displays synchronized to festive music.


If you are a fan of live music, visit at night during the weekend for performances from local musicians, delicious food and yummy drinks.
