Stuckey Farm Orchard and Cider Mill in Sheridan, Indiana is spread over 4,000 acres containing twenty-seven different varieties of apples! I’ll let you dwell on that mind-blowing number for a moment.
With that kind of size, you know that this Indiana orchard is not located in the middle of a city. No, you are going to take a scenic country drive for this one–and love every minute of it!
Stuckey Farm Market Apple Picking List
Take the free wagon ride to the orchard. Fuji, Golden Grimes and Red Delicious, Jonathan and Jonamac, Honey Crisp, and Courtland are some of the varieties that could be available for picking at the time of your visit.

The Stuckey Farm Market website does display a list of what apples are currently ripe for the picking (literally) but do yourself a favor, and save a trip, by calling ahead of time to double-check if you have your heart set on a specific kind.
Kids, however, will flock to Adventure Acres, the newest addition to the Stuckey Farm. With a long, long slide, a tall hill, pedal tractors fit for kids (and adults), a corn maze, and bucket ride, this Sheridan, Indiana farm is a nice family-friendly way to spend an afternoon.
School Tours at Indiana Apple Orchard
School tours are available as well. Whether it is for a traditional school group or a homeschool group tour (who do receive a discounted rate), Adventure Acres is included. At the time of this writing, children under the age of 2 are free.
Autumn weekends bring the Harvest Festival. For a nominal admission fee, you receive all-day access to the farm. What’s that mean for you? You may purchase homemade cider donuts, play on the 25′ long tube slide, enjoy pedal cars and barrel rides, or the new life-sized board game!
You grab a spinner and make your way around the game. There could be flashlight corn maze hours. Now that sounds like harmless spooky fun! There’s always plenty of pumpkins and fresh apples. Other fruits, like blueberries or cherries may be seasonally available in the market.
Harvest Festival, Events, and More
Here’s a helpful hint: if you only need to stop at the shop, don’t do it doing the Harvest Festival, or you will need to pay the fee. Save it for any other day of the week or a weekend before it begins.
In 2015, they developed the Fruits & Veggies Club. It featured nine weeks of the freshest fruits and veggies for your family. It ran from July 3 to September 5.
