Yesterday, my youngest son and I enjoyed a day out at Linvilla Orchard‘s Garden Center along with other local Philly Social Media Moms. After being treated to lunch in the cafe area of the Garden Center, we checked out the new miniature golf, Fore!, set up in the back.
With a range of sizes for the clubs, everyone had the chance to play the 18-hole course, plus learn more about taking care of our planet along the way.
I was mesmerized by the beautiful plants in the Center, including these Gerber Daisies. I’d like to go back to pick up herb plants for a windowsill garden. If you want preplanted veggie seeds, you can pick up a domed pot with hot peppers or other varieties inside.
My son James took a little while to warm up, and then he had a great time playing golf. The course is great for 3 and up with parental assistance for the younger ones.
First the boys led the way in the maze with their yellow flag.
Then, Jessica of Delaware County Moms took over as we realized that we were lost. Yes, we saw the gazebo about a gadzillion times. Little ones disappeared in the trees. An executive decision was made. We cut through the trees, and found the 2 little ones watching the fish in the fish tank in the Garden Center.
Taking advantage of the beautiful weather, we ended our visit by feeding the animals.
Of course, no visit to Linvilla Orchards is complete without a bag of their apple cider donuts sold in the bakery section of the farm market. While you’re there, pick up some of the half price fruits and veggies, a winter special until mid-March. Throw in locally made jams and jellies plus Pennsylvania maple syrup and you have yourself a feast!
If you go:
Linvilla Orchards is stroller-friendly around the farm market, garden center, playground, and animal feeding areas. I wouldn’t recommend bringing a stroller for the pick your own during the summer. Linvilla’s policy is to drive its customers in a flat-bed truck to the picking areas.
The picnic area is between the farm market and the playground. During the summer, there are performances on the stage near by. The playground is free to use though they ask for a donation at the gate. There’s a small maze in the playground area good for ages 8 and up.

My opinions in this post are my own and not those of Linvilla Orchards. I received 2 free lunches and a cookie in return for attending this event.
