Fred and Ranghild Bostrom planted the first fruit trees on Sun High’s 25 acres back in 1945. Today, kids can pick their own apples (starting in early September) and pumpkins (starting the last weekend of September), then relax playing checkers or Candy Land in front of a refurbished beehive oven, where fresh fruit pies bubble and bake. Weekend hayrides are a popular draw, as are visits with the farm’s inhabitants, including sheep, rabbits, ducks (and adorable ducklings in springtime), donkeys, and an alpaca named Jersey Gold. The farm’s on-site market sells crafts, fresh produce, baked goods, apple cider and homemade ice cream.
