Corporate & Large Groups

Group packages at Center Grove Orchard offer many interchangeable components allowing you to create your ideal event. Listed below you will find details about admissions, food options, gathering locations, and special accommodations. Complete the inquiry form at the bottom of the page so we can help you make memories that last a lifetime.



The more the merrier! Discounts for large groups are available when purchased in a single transaction. Admission vouchers are a great way to add a personal touch to your event. Each event leader will receive a customized voucher for their event that they will then pass out to each of their guests. For more information on admission vouchers, contact us by submitting your inquiry below.


Food Options

We strive to provide a memorable experience for each group. With a variety of food venues there is something for everyone! 

One way to offer individuality within your event is to provide meal vouchers for each member attending. Meal vouchers may be redeemed for any meal combo at the Hay Cafe*, Feed Bunk*, and Shucks.* Adult meal vouchers are $9.95 while child meal vouchers are $5.95. Meal vouchers are available for events when purchased in a single transaction. 

Vouchers can be customized for sweet treats as well! Contact us to create a custom voucher for your event. 

In addition to meal vouchers, we also offer catering.* Welcome Porch reservations have the capability to have their meal catered directly on the porch. Catered meals for events with 20 guests or more will receive a private line at the Feed Bunk.

If you are interested in offering meal vouchers or having Center Grove Orchard cater your event, please submit the form below to contact us!

*Menus and pricing will be available here in mid-summer.


Gathering Locations

We strongly encourage groups to have a “Home Base” for their event. Two available options are to reserve the Welcome Porch or a Campfire site. We do have picnic tables around the farm, however, we cannot guarantee availability.


Special Accommodations

If your group or event is in need of additional supplies such as tables, chairs, heaters, etc., please include that in your request below. We will do our best to accommodate your request.

Can I bring in my own food?

Yes, outside food and nonalcoholic beverages are permitted.


Does Center Grove Orchard allow outside catering services?

If you plan to use an outside catering service (i.e. you are paying someone to prepare food for and/or serve food to your group), you must register the caterer when booking your event. An outside catering fee of $200 must be paid in full prior to your event. Center Grove Orchard staff will need to be alerted so that they can direct the caterer to your site or deliver the catering to your site. Outside caterers absolutely may not drive to the campfire sites unless accompanied by CGO staff. 


Catering cancellations

The cancellation policy applies to the agreed upon price on the food for your event.

Weather-related cancellations will acquire the following fees:

We understand that life happens and weather can be unpredictable. Please understand that all cancellations and fees will be subject to management review and approval.

A 10% catering service fee will be added to any event that has 50 or more guests.


Can I request custom vouchers for items other than food?

Absolutely! We can provide vouchers for pumpkins, donuts, caramel apples, etc. Specify your request in the inquiry form above.

We are anticipating our Strawberry Season to last 3-4 weeks once the berries ripen at the end of May.🍓 During this time we will have many Farmyard activities open - including the Corn Pool! 🌽 “Donut” forget to grab a strawberry treat at the Hay Café and Country Store! 🥧


Strawberry Patch, Hay Cafe, Coffee Shop, & Farmyard
Every day from 9 AM to 2 PM
Country Store
Every day from 9 AM to 5 PM

Weather and daily picking activity will affect the Strawberry Patch’s operating hours. Depending on those two variables, the patch may need to close for a couple days to allow the strawberries to ripen. The Coffee Shop, Hay Café, Country Store, and Farmyard will stay open, even if the Strawberry Patch is closed. 

Please check our social media or website for the most accurate information regarding the Strawberry Patch.
