Apple Tasting: All Day
Were you aware of the many delicious varieties of apples and their uses? Bring your questions, because we will have the answers you need!
Some apples are tart and some are sweet. Some make good pies and others tasty treats! Our staff will be in front of Linvilla’s Farm Market all day to let you taste our many varieties and show you the several things you can do with apples all fall.

The Donut Game: 11:15am
This game is more for our younger guests. We will tie one of Linvilla’s famous donuts to one end of a piece of ribbon. The other end of the ribbon will be tied to a clothes line, the length of our stage. Each heat will have about 8 donuts hanging from the clothes line. The goal is to be the first contestant to eat the donut that is dangling in front of your face. The catch? You cannot use your hands! Each heat will be divided by age, just like the pie eating contest.

Pie Eating Contest: 2pm
Even if you do not wish to stick your face in some of Linvilla’s own pies, it is definitely a sight to see!
