Weber’s Cider Mill Farm in Parkville

For over 4 generations now, the Weber family has been growing and selling produce. Thing shave changed a bit since 1908 when their farm first started, though—now, you can find a huge variety of things to enjoy and explore! Autumn is a special time of year on the farm, and you can spend a crisp fall day going on a hayride, navigating a straw maze, checking out the Boo Barn, picking out a pumpkin, and much more. Pick up some fresh apple cider or a homemade pie to take home, too!
