Tanners Orchard Family Activities Rock Island IL

Our family farm offers you acres of fun all located at one convenient spot. Where else can you go apple picking, walk a corn maze, eat, shop, snap pictures of sunflowers, and pick a good Halloween decoration at our pumpkin patch. Furthermore, the Back 40 Fun acres includes games, play areas, and other kids activities. Why spend big to stand in long lines in one of those crowded theme parks? Our fun is priced much more affordably.

We have welcomed families like yours to have fun at our apple orchard since 1947. Whether you are visiting for the first time or visit several times each year, we welcome you. For first-timers, look at this short video to learn more about the fun you can have at our apple picking farm. Contact us if you need more information or tickets to our special events.


Do Not Miss Out on Our Fresh and Great Tasting Apples

A trip to Tanners is not complete without a relaxing stroll through our orchard to pick the best tasting apples. In fact, you may find it hard to pick which of our 17 different types of apples you like the most. The 11,000 trees in our orchard give you plenty of options. Click on the link to our handy apple chart for help with your trip. It gives you information on each type of apple, when it is ripe, and how to best use it for baking. Our U-pick season opens the first Saturday in September and runs until there are no more apples to pick. Visit during one of our Festival Days to enjoy a wagon ride out to the orchard, one of our most popular family activities in Rock Island IL.

Pick Out a Pumpkin to Bake or Decorate

As the holidays near, our pumpkin patch becomes the perfect place to find a Halloween decoration or ingredients for a Thanksgiving pie. There are thousands of pumpkins from which you can find the perfect Jack-O’-Lantern. In fact, our pumpkin patch covers 20 acres where six different pumpkin varieties grow. Therefore, you can pick out the perfect one from all the available shapes and sizes. Trust us. We can provide you with a much better selection than you will find at a grocer or retailer. Come to Tanners to get the best pumpkins and enjoy other family activities by Rock Island IL.
