Come check out the “most spacious farm” in Morris County!
Ort Farms located at 25 Bartley Road in Long Valley, New Jersey is the perfect choice for a fun and exciting family day. Ort Farms has both free and low-cost activities that the entire family can enjoy.
This October, spend the day at Ort Farms’ Fall Festival.
Free admission to the pick-your-own pumpkin patch is available 7 days a week from 9-7pm.
Hayrides to the patch are available weekdays from 12-6pm and weekends 9am – 6pm.
Here are the great activities you will find at the Ort Farms’ Fall Festival:
- Free hay pyramid for kids to climb
- Free mini haybale maze
- Free hay tunnel
- Great places to take pictures

- Food tent benefiting local non-profit organizations
- Antique Farm Equipment Museum
- Hayride to pumpkin patch – only $1/person and children under age 2 are free
- Train ride sponsored by the Long Valley fire company – $3/person (weekend only)

This year, Ort Farms has dedicated their corn maze to the rebuilding efforts after the storm that changed NJ forever, Hurricane Sandy.
Adults and children will enjoy finding their way through various paths that, when seen from an aerial view, say, “Stronger Than the Storm.” A portion of the proceeds from the maze will benefit a charity for victims of Hurricane Sandy. Farmers have a great understanding of how weather can significantly impact people’s lives. The farm family at Ort Farms found it important to express their empathy for those who have been impacted by this storm, and they are happy to give back and help the rebuilding efforts.
Another great event available this October at Ort Farms is their night maze and hayride.
Every Saturday night from 6-10pm, adults and children can bring their flashlights and enjoy these 2 great non-scary, family friendly events. I highly recommend choosing the nighttime package for $7.95 that includes the hayride, corn maze, a donut and hot apple cider. What night is complete without a yummy fall farm treat? If you prefer to pay separately, the hayride is $1 and the corn maze is $5.
Ort Farms is a six-generation family owned farm with over 400 acres of land used to grow amazing produce for families to enjoy all year. Ort Farms is a proud participant in the Community Supported Agriculture Program (CSA).
Ort Farms has 2 locations to purchase fresh produce and yummy homemade farm treats such as pies, breads, donuts, jams and jellies.
- Main Farm – 25 Bartley Road, Long Valley, NJ: Open year round 7 days a week from 9am – 7pm
- Country Corner Market – 6 E. Valley Brook Rd, Long Valley, NJ: Open May – October; Monday – Saturday 9am – 7pm and Sunday 9am – 6pm
There are so many reasons to love Ort Farms. It is a four season farm with family friendly programs and amazing produce and homemade baked goods to enjoy. We love Ort Farms for it’s beautiful setting and open space. Even though it is visited by hundreds of people, it never feels overcrowded or cramped. Families are able to spread out and enjoy the day! This is a unique feature not available at most farms in New Jersey. Ort Farms also has a great variety of pumpkins to choose from that can put a smile on any child’s face. I highly recommend getting the family together (call up those grandparents too), hop in the car and drive over to Ort Farms for an amazing fall day!
