Herman's Farm Orchard, St. Charles
3663 N Hwy 94
St. Charles MO 63301
Amenities: playground, fruit picking, pumpkin patch
Playground ground cover: wood chips
This is a small orchard that is perfect if you have little kids and don't want to drive all the way to Eckerts. It's family owned and operated and they have a ton of fruits and veggies you can pick and/or buy including pumpkins, apples, tomatoes, sqaush and watermelon. We rode the wagon out to the orchard just for the fun of it because my 3 year old loved it, it was so close you could walk. They give you bags, answer any questions, and show you where everything is that you're interested in picking.
The kid area includes a big play structure with bales of hay (good for photo ops), 3 different slides, and ladders to climb. There is also an indoor covered area full of picnic tables and wagons and toy tractors for the kids to pull. My kids had a blast pulling each other in the wagon and there is also a plastic log cabin style house they played in as well. They have a little store where you can buy produce next to the checkout. I liked it because it was smaller than Eckerts and closer to home.
Thanks Angie for this review and the photos!
