Patrons can sample vintages from various regions of New Jersey and Pennsylvania. For non-wine drinking music lovers, Flying Fish Brewery will be pouring their famous, craft beers.
Craft Artists will showcase their unique hand-crafted goods which include jewelry, fiber arts, original art, and wood working. A Culinary Grove highlights regional cuisine including specialty desserts, balsamic vinegars, and smoked meats. Guests are welcome to bring picnic baskets or can choose to indulge at the gourmet food trucks selling delicious cuisine ranging from BBQ to fresh wraps and seafood.
Parents can sample wines child-free by dropping off their children (3-13 years of age) at the Appel Farm Kids Camp, where the kids will enjoy activities such as arts projects, theatre games, and outdoor sports under the direction of our trained summer camp staff. With over 50 years of camp experience, kids will be in a fun, safe and caring environment that will let their creativity shine!
