Fall Season at the Farm!

Apple Cider Donuts! | September 7 – October 31

Our famous apple cider donuts are always a hit! We bake these warm cinnamon sugar donuts on the farm fresh, daily, beginning the Saturday after Labor Day through Halloween. These popular fall treats almost have a cult-like following! It is highly recommended you call ahead 618-893-2771 to reserve donut quantities by the 6-packs or dozens to take home or pick up in a hurry. Be forewarned, there are times when we run out towards the end of the day, so calling ahead or arriving before 3:30pm is often best if you must have your fix!

Apple Cider | August 23 – October 31

Rendleman Orchards’ fresh-pressed apple cider is available daily by the Gallon, Half gallon, and sipper cups beginning late August through Halloween! Our apple cider is UV pasteurized so you and your family can safely enjoy this seasonal must-have! UV pasteurization eliminates unsafe pathogens while not affecting the delicious taste you so fondly remember. Our apple cider is fresh-pressed, containing no added sugar or preservatives, making Rendleman Orchards’ apple cider the best around! By the way… did you know that you can buy several gallons of cider at a time and freeze it for use as you want it?

Apple Cider Slushies | September 7 – October 31, (Saturdays and Sundays Only)

Every Saturday and Sunday throughout the fall season Rendleman Orchards offers cold apple cider slushies by the cup to our visitors in our Farm Market. What a special treat it is to sip alongside a warm apple cider donut! This combo does not disappoint! We usually start our apple cider slushies the weekend after Labor Day and continue through Halloween.

U-Pick Sunflower Field | September 21 – While Bloom Lasts (approx. 3 weeks)

Opening day of the U-Pick sunflower field is generally late September and continues through bloom. Bloom is quite weather dependent so follow us on social media for most up-to-date sunflower field information. Our U-Pick sunflower field is open daily from 9:00am to 5:00pm Monday through Saturday, and 12:00 noon to 5:00pm on Sundays while bloom lasts. We invite you to take a small red wagon located at our Farm Market with you on a short walk over to our nearby beautiful sunflower field. In the sunflower field you will find thousands of gorgeous sunflowers of all shapes and sizes to choose from. Prices are by the stem. Bring your clippers or borrow from our scissor tree! You may pay for these beauties inside our Farm Market when you pick up some other fall farm favorites! No wagon ride lines or fees here! Our close-by and walkable sunflower field provides our customers an easy-going adventure where you set your own pace and timeline. Make it a quick trip or take your time at this very unique experience. Of course, this is a wonderful photo opportunity for all! We welcome photographers however, we currently do not schedule or charge for photo sessions in our sunflower field. We only ask that you are respectful to fellow customers and also come during our regular business hours: Mon. – Sat. 9:00am to 5:00pm, and Sundays 12:00 noon to 5:00pm. We are not able to offer any extended hours in our sunflower field for photos due to our already demanding harvest schedule.
