The Great Candy Drop
When: September 12th, 13th, 19th and 20th – 10 AM – 6 PM. Candy drop will occur at 2 PM each day.
Where: Wickham Farms – 1315 Sweets Corners Road. Penfield, NY 14526.
What: Join Wickham Farms for The Great Candy Drop and fall apple picking!
Cost: Included with your Barnyard admission for the day. There will also be a candy drop site for those who are picking just apples too (no barnyard admission required for this candy drop).
Who: The Candy Drop is geared towards our younger guests (ages 12 & under). We would ask that our older guests simply observe the candy drop while the youngers participate. Guests of all ages are invited to enjoy all of the activities offered in the Barnyard besides the Candy Drop.
Join Wickham Farms on September 12th, 13th, 19th and 20th for the GREAT CANDY DROP and fall apple picking. If mother nature cooperates, we will also begin our annual HONEYCRISP APPLE CELEBRATIONS on September 14th. This year’s weather, however, has caused most apples to ripen about a week late so make sure to check back for picking updates on Facebook, the website, or the farm’s apple hotline (585-210-9871).
What is the Great Candy Drop? – Each day at 2PM (weather permitting), a helicopter will fly over the farm and rain down candy for our apple pickers and Barnyard guests. We will designate multiple “drop zones” to help everyone get a good shot at some candy.
Barnyard Admission includes our jumping pillow, jumping pad, miniature golf, three corn mazes, kiddie train rides, playgrounds, slides, *apple cannons, *hayrides (*weekends only) and so much more! Children ages 2 and younger are free. The Barnyard will also feature a magician from 1PM – 4PM on these dates.
Please check The Apple Hotline for Honeycrisp availability – 585 210-9871. We cannot control mother nature and Apples are taking longer to get ready this year.
HONEYCRISP APPLES WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE PRIOR TO 9/19.
PLEASE ALLOW ADDITIONAL TIME TO PARK, PURCHASE YOUR TICKETS AND WALK TO THE CANDY DROP SITE. WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND PURCHASING YOUR Admission ONLINE TO SAVE TIME AT CHECK IN! Save $1 and time by purchasing your admission tickets online:
The candy drop is geared towards our younger guests. We kindly ask that no one over the age of 12 collect candy at this event. Our first priority is the safety of our guests, staff and our pilot, if the weather is not cooperating we may need to delay or cancel the candy drop.
*Children ages two and under are free when accompanied by an adult with paid admission.
Unfortunately, we must ask you to please leave your pets home. PETS ARE NOT ALLOWED IN THE ORCHARD DUE TO FOOD SAFETY REGULATIONS.
