We love dogs and we welcome you and your canine companions to join us at the orchard for a dog dress up day on Sunday, October 13 from 10am - 4pm. Dog treats and water bowls provided. The Licking County Humane Society will be here with a few dogs that need loving homes and some education on the wonderful services they provide to dogs and our community. We only ask that your dog be on a leash and you clean up any messes that may occur ;)

You can enter our dog photo contest that runs from October 13 - 20 by photographing your dog in costume at the orchard and then tagging us, #branstoolorchards, on Instagram or Facebook for a chance to win a $25 gift card.
