Lehigh Valley Outpost

 
Lehigh Valley Outpost seeks to increase public awareness of healthy, seasonal and sustainable food by incorporating innovative farming techniques and agritourism activities. The ideal location for a group outing, students and scouts will be immersed in farmland exploration as they work together to navigate through Lehigh’s maze. Younger visitors can find a tricycle the right size for them and ride around the track, hop aboard the cow train, and enjoy a relaxing hayride. Groups may also take an educational nature walk through Deer Hollow and visit the outpost animals. Paint pumpkins, race ducks, launch pumpkins and launch corn; there is no limit to the fall fun at Lehigh!
