Frequently Asked Questions

Are kids welcome?

Absolutely!  We are a fourth-generation farm, and family is key.  In the summer, we have outdoor games and activities for all ages.  Bring the kids and let them run and play while you kick back at a picnic table or join them in a game.  In the winter months, we have winter paths to explore and a barn with an activity set up.

Are you dog-friendly?

Yes, we love our furry family members.  Well-behaved dogs are allowed outside on a leash.  Our farm dogs wander into the tasting room occasionally; however, we don’t let other pets inside. 

Do you have food?

We have a few snack items available in the tasting room. On most Friday evenings through the summer, we have live music and a caterer or a food truck on site.

Do you allow outside food?

We do. Feel free to bring a picnic or your favorite takeout.  However, out of respect for the food trucks that visit us, we ask that you refrain from bringing outside food on the days they are here. That is typically Friday evenings through the summer.  Follow our social media or check our event page to see the schedule.

Do you allow outside alcohol on site?

No. It is against our serving license, and if we see you with it, you will be asked to throw it away. 

Are your wines estate-grown and made?

Yes!  We grow the grapes here on the farm and make the wines on-site.

Do you have non-alcoholic drink options?

Yes. We have Northwood sodas and waters year-round, along with slushes in the summer.  Feel free to bring non-alcoholic drinks onsite.

Is your cider estate grown and made?

Our ciders start with locally sourced apples, and we make them on-site.

Did someone mention u-pick cherries?

Yes, we started as a cherry farm over 100 years ago and continue that tradition with our patent business, Shooks Farms. The picking season is in July.  Follow our social media and event page to find out when our U-pick stand is open and what type of cherry is ready to pick.

Do you have events or pre-planned activities?

We host a variety of events throughout the year, big and small.  Annually, we have an anniversary party, mini bikes on the farm, an end-of-summer bash, and a Christmas lights tractor parade.  Live music is a feature on Fridays throughout the summer, and we host other things, from paint and sips to farm yoga.
