Our store and café are on flat, level ground – easily accessible for those with disabilities. The petting zoo and kids’ area is also accessible down a slight decline on an asphalt path. Gravel and uneven ground, however, make reaching the orchard & pumpkin patch more challenging.
The Flying Monkey Cafe is now closed for the 2020 season. We look forward to seeing you next year!
