About 20 minutes from Cabrini College’s campus, Linvilla Orchards can be found. Approximately 300 acres of family farmland dedicated to agricultural, entertainment and education make up Linvilla Orchards.
“I used to go there twice a month because I loved it so much,” Julia Messemer, senior political science and history major, said. With the coming of new seasons comes new attractions and things to do at Linvilla.
Currently during the fall season the most popular activities and attractions are face paintings as well as a hayride with friends and family through the fields and orchards.
Linvilla is not just orchards and pumpkins; there is also the fully stocked Orchard Lake where catching a big fish is no small feat.
“There is a petty zoo for an adult child like myself,” Messemer said. “I love that because the animals are so sweet and supper fat because people feed them all the time.”
“Animals you can find in the petting zoo range from deer, goats, cows, ducks, pigs and emus. All animals are gated and able to interact with.”
“I love the food that they have,” Messemer said. “They have homemade pies, cobbler, cookies, cheese, salsa and pretty much anything you could ever imagine.” Linvilla’s bakery is open year-round and presents many seasonal specialties.
“Cabrini students should go there because it’s a nice escape from campus and the main line,” Messemer said. “If you are looking for some good home-styled food it’s a great place to go and get some,” Messemer said.
