Activities at Center Grove




The Farmyard

Step into the Farmyard at Center Grove Orchard for a day of amazing activities and fun. With more than 25 attractions, including animals, interactive activities, Corn Maze, Jumping Pillow, Super Slides, the CGO Express and more, this is the place to be for family adventure.

Apple Orchard

Experience apple picking in our 20-acre Apple Orchard! Purchase admission, pick up a U-pick bag, spend some time in nature and set out on a quest to find the perfect apples to enjoy at home.

Sunflower Meadow

A picture perfect spot! The Sunflower Meadow consists of 9 acres featuring 16 varieties of sunflowers, most of which grow to a height of between 5 to 6 feet. Varieties include not only a single, large yellow blossom but an assortment of options.

Seasonal Items

We don’t only have apples at Center Grove Orchard. Every fall, you can find pumpkins and other gourds in our 25-acre patch. We also offer peaches seasonally and festive items around the holidays.

Special Events

From September to December, Center Grove Orchard is a flurry of activity! Even when the Apple Orchard and Farmyard are closed for the season, there are special events to be enjoyed, especially around the holidays!
