Fall Play Date – Wednesday, October 24, 2012


Come meet other moms and their kiddos and have a day filled with pumpkin patch fun at Center Grove Orchard.  Spend a few hours or spend the whole day! The DMMB team will be there from 9-12 and we can’t wait to meet you. Bring your family,  friends, neighbors and join us as we celebrate our first of many play dates.

From 9-9:20 we’ll meet in front of the Learning Barn to get to know each other, but feel free to explore at your family’s own pace.

We’ll have GIVEAWAYS at 10 and 11 so stop back for a chance to win!


Weekday admission is $7.95 for adults. Kids under 3 are free. Be sure to let us know if you are coming so we can get a group rate.Email [email protected] or let us know here and we will add your name to our group.


The Grove offers a variety of food and beverages on site.  The newly opened Hay Café and coffee shop offer tasty lunches and snacks in addition to their famous bakery and general store. If you wish to bring your own lunch and snacks, outside food is permitted. Feel free to relax on one of the many picnic tables on site whenever your family needs to eat.  Our Team will ‘do lunch’ after the 11 a.m. giveaway and we’d love for you to join us.


The orchard offers plenty of activities for all ages. From hayrides to a huge corn pool, farm animals to a  jumping pillow, there’s plenty of fun for all.

Whether your kids are 2 or 12, we promise they’ll have a good time. Even if you’re Mom to an infant or young toddler, please come anyway and have some much-needed social time! Us moms  may have more fun than the kids anyway!
