Guests will be able to participate in activities such as peach picking, historical re-enactments, vintage car shows, and antique craft fairs. We grow eight different varieties that ripen at various times during May. Depending on the variety, some peaches are small, while others are medium, and still others are big. Prior to arrival at the farm, please be aware of the variety you will be buying or choosing. The selling of peaches is FINAL. Peach harvest dates will be determined by Mother Nature. Earligrand, Springcrest, Florida Prince, Florida King, Snow Angel, and Princess Schnepf are among the peaches on the list. Nectarines, as well. Plan to attend one of the special seasonal farm festivals, or simply stop by the u-pick garden to pick your own vegetables.
In celebration of its 80th anniversary, Schnepf Farms debuted Agritainment Park, a new form of entertainment. The Agritainment Park at Schnepf Farms is open now through April 25 and features over 25 different attractions for kids of all ages to enjoy.
A family favorite is the spooky train ride. It allows you to see the majority of the farm and all of the celebrations throughout the day. The ghosts and goblins come out at night. It leads you through a dark, dense forest with a graveyard and many live, eerie characters. It also passes through a tunnel of strobe lights and creepy decorations.
During the festivals in October, December, and February, admission is charged. In April, peach season begins. The farm is only open from Thursday to Sunday, and August is still closed.
With the pandemic going on, some of their Covid Safety measures includes; putting hand sanitizer or hand washing stations by every ride and food area, going cashless, limiting guests inside, maintaining social distancing and staff screening periodically.
