As Silverman's apple picking season ended in early October, many customers were discouraged at their fleeting picking season, but were equally as excited for the pumpkin picking that awaited them. Pumpkin picking is one of many fruits that can be picked at the farm including blueberries, raspberries, peaches, and apples.

Silverman's Famous Cider Donuts are always a hit in the fall season.

Many of these fruits and more can be found in their farm market, which also boasts daily desserts.
