Fall Family Fun Weekends at Terhune Orchards – Throughout October at this Princeton venue, families can pick-their-own apples and pumpkins, visit the farm market for homemade pies, donuts and apple cider, enjoy pony rides and wagon rides, venture through the corn stalk maze and visit the barnyard of farm animals. Families can also enjoy a wide range of food and live music from some of the best local talent.
