Romeo's Westview Orchard, Cider and Corn Maze
Michael Bowerman began this Romeo farm in 1813 and his offspring--6th and 7th generation--proudly carry on the tradition. Brian gave us an awesome tour showing us the creek that his great great great great great great grand daddy would follow in order to trade with the Indians. They use underground irrigation to water their crops. We enjoyed the animals to pet, hay wagon rides, cider, honey, peach flips, ice cream, cheddar chive bread, a peck of apples, and apple cherry butter. Want a pumpkin? They have wagons out in the field for you to pick one out then pull it back in a toy wagon. Our favorite thing is their corn maze--actually they have three of them with one running at night, so bring your flashlight. This is a beautiful bicentennial farm!
