Come out to The Orchard and Company and vote for Black and Orange’s scarecrow as the best scarecrow in the “Scarecrows for Charity” event. If our scarecrow gets the most votes, we will win $500 for Plain City kitties.

I want to thank Willi Rivenburg and Angie Austin for choosing Black and Orange as the charity they wanted to honor with a scarecrow. This is our super scarecrow team, featured with the B and O scarecrow, in the photo! Thanks so much for this awesome looking cat scarecrow (of course, who better to scare away crows than a giant cat!?).

The Orchard and Company is a family friendly destination that will be open this weekend, September 22 and 23, from 11am-6pm. The Orchard and Company will also be open September 29 and 30, and weekends the entire month of October.

The Orchard and Company features, not only an apple orchard and scarecrows, but also many exciting activities meant to entice visitors from Plain City and across the state. With a gift shop, bakery, and “Pigadeli Café” on site, shoppers and “foodies” alike will find seasonal treasures and edible goodies galore.

For children, there are tons of fun activities that will keep them on the move, including a pedal car track, tire climb, jumping pillow, zip lines, wagon rides, and more. If the kids aren’t tired after a day at The Orchard, they must be robots!

The Orchard and Company is currently hosting “Scarecrows for Charity” as part of their Fall Festival. Scarecrows, created by and for local charitable organizations, will be on display throughout The Orchard. Visitors can vote for their favorite scarecrow after viewing them on a tractor drawn hayride. The winning scarecrow’s charity will receive a monetary prize.

The Orchard and Company is located south of Plain City at 7255 US Highway 42 North, just a short, scenic drive from Columbus, London, Marysville, or Dayton. The Orchard and Company would also like to encourage bicycle aficionados to ride out and drop in for a bowl of chili or a slice of pie. The Orchard and Company is only a few miles from The Heritage Rail Trail’s endpoint on Cemetery Pike in Plain City.

An Orchard day pass is $8.00. The tractor drawn wagon hayride, as well as fishing in The Orchard’s pond, requires an additional $2. To see the scarecrows and vote on them, you have to take the wagon hayride. Children two and under and adults over fifty-five receive free admission.

The Orchard and Company can also accommodate large groups and parties. Contact The Orchard for a place to host school outings, birthday parties, reunions, weddings, company meetings, and other special occasions.

Thank you again to Willi and Angie, Ron Winn, and the staff at The Orchard and Company for choosing to make a scarecrow for Black and Orange. When I received the photos of our cool cat scarecrow, I was pleasantly surprised! You guys are great!
