Attractions


Apple Cider Donuts
You will find that our second-to-none donuts are even better when we have added a few gallons of our locally pressed sweet apple cider to the batter for extra moistness and flavor. We have this delicious harvest tradition ready for you fresh every day. So bring home a bag and add some apple and cinnamon flavor to your morning routine!

Barrel Train Rides
Your youngsters will love our unique barrel-train ride through our orchards, sunflowers, and cornstalks. We’ve turned some of our colorful plastic barrels into sturdy one-kid train for trains upwards of 10 linked cars long, pulled slowly around the grounds. Barrel-train rides are held every weekend and you can book this for your child’s birthday party. And if you buy $20 of apples, the ride is free!

Cornstalks
Find beautiful dried cornstalks, gourds, and hay for your ideal autumn décor, just in time for Halloween. We grow a few rows of corn, visible from our kids’ barrel train ride, cutting them down them just in time for you to buy in October, a perennial South Jersey favorite that keeps people coming back.

Duck Race
If your youngsters enjoy games that combine a little workout with a fair challenge, try our Free Duck Race game next to the playground. Here, you race a rubber duck around a PVC pipe, cut in half so you can see the action, by flushing water into the pipe with a hand pump! May the best duckie win.

Farm to Table Dinners
Enjoy a once in a lifetime fine dining experience at one of our renowned farm to table dinner events. What makes Hill Creek Farms Farm to Table dinners unique are our chefs and the freshness of our own farm-raised vegetables and fruits incorporated into every meal we serve. This produce not only fresh, but pick for peak flavors and colors as determined by our chefs. Ideal for a fancy date night, family outing, or holiday gathering, our farm to table dinners are as unique as they are delicious. Feast on local meats, cheeses, and produce from the kitchen of our very own world-class Rastelli Market Fresh Chefs.

Firepit
For a chance to relax after a fun time of food shopping, kids’ games and rides, stay warm in the crisp autumn air by gathering on the log stools around our firepit for a sip from your sweet cider or hot chocolate. This is a family-friendly space as the roaring flames are surrounded by a low wall and safety barrier.

Fresh Made Apple Cider
It’s no great secret that visitors to Hill Creek Farms love our apples! Whether our guests are here to pick their own bushels, delight in our freshly baked apple pies, or indulge our farm to table dinner event, our apples are in everything. Our fresh made apple cider is no exception, which we press weekly at our FDA-approved cider mill, located only one mile from the farm. We pasteurize our apple cider in accordance with safe beverage standards, for increased shelf life and delicious flavor.

Gem Mining Company
A souvenir means more when you have to work a little to find it. Awaken your child’s curiosity and sense of adventure by panning for buried treasure at our Gem Mining Company! Buy a bag of sand and discover its secret contents by sifting through it in our fun outdoor sluice. Your little prospectors can find polished rocks, shark’s teeth, and more!

Hay Wagon Rides
Relax and savor the scenic South Jersey countryside on one of our free tractor-driven hay wagon rides held every weekend on our lovely grounds including rows of apple and pear trees. We run our hayrides often during the day for everyone who wants to get a turn, and this is a gentle, family-friendly activity evocative of rural living. Also, you can book rides during the week for birthday parties.

Local Wine
Indulge in a sampling of local wines from our partners at Auburn Road Vineyard & Winery, including our very own crisp, juicy Hill Creek Apple Wine. Purchase a bottle to bring home with you, or enjoy it at our lunch spot The Grille, or during our renowned farm to table dinner events. If you prefer not to buy a whole bottle, we sell half-bottles of two wines, Sole (white) and Good Karma (red), each equal to two and a half glasses of wine.

Playground
While you are enjoying all that our working farm has to offer you in apple varieties and more, your young children can romp safely in our amazing playground, free all day, every day, complete with tire mountain, fire truck slide, sandbox, moonbounce, bean-bag toss, and more. This is just one of several great family amenities to keep you coming back for South Jersey’s best apples and baked goods.
