4. Herr’s Factory

Who wouldn’t want to taste super hot chips, fresh from the fryer? Pennsylvania has lots of great food factory tours, including the one at Krieder’s Farm, home of Pride of the Farm milk. Even though the Herr’s Factory Tour is free of charge, for most food factory tours, you’ll need to make reservations and the spots fill up! Call ahead to confirm operating hours and reservations. For a complete list of food factory tours, see this post at cookkosher.


5. Cherry Crest Farm

A day at Cherry Crest Farm is wholesome family fun. Besides for the corn maze (always an adventure), there’s lots of “booths” with fun activities, such as sliding down a giant slide in a potato sack or jumping on a huge air-filled trampoline-like balloons.
The last time I visited was also during a bein haz’manim time and there was even a set place for a minyan set up on the farm.
The farm is not open on Sunday or Monday; check the calendar before you go!
