Family Fun at Kelder's Farm in Kerhonkson

The Jumping Pillow at Kelders Farm opens in late April weather permitting

We always have family fun at Kelder's Farm on Route 209 in Kerhonkson. There are great U-pick farm stands along Route 209, but Kelder's Farm first appealed to me because it has a petting zoo and a bouncing area for kids. This "Jumping Pillow" is a big hit for my kids. They also have hayrides and you can milk a cow for $2. We bounce for at least an hour! There is no time limit. You pay $5 per person for a wristband, but you can bounce all day if you like.

It is a really beautiful place, so if you go, don't forget your camera! You can also pick your own fruits and vegetables in season at Kelder's Farm. I would definitely recommend Kelder's Farm for any child who loves to jump and bounce. There is also a small edible mini-golf course. The hardest part will be getting them off the jumping pillow! Also, just FYI, the restrooms are porto-potties so if you have a porto potty phobia, best to go somewhere else before you start the jump-a-thon.

I love pizza so I was very excited to find Pizza Barn, a laid-back, beautiful, rustic pizza place in Accord that makes gluten-free and organic pizza on Route 209, not far from Kelder's. All the pizzas here are made of organic ingredients and grass-fed, hormone-, antibiotic-, and nitrate-free meats. The kids loved the pepperoni pizza. We loved our square slices made with organic whole grain flour. We didn't get to try the gluten-free pizza, so we'll have to try it next time. It is really hard to find gluten free pizza in the Hudson Valley, so I was happy to find this one for all you gluten-sensitive folks.
