Things We Experience During Our Visit
We originally went for their Corn maze. We had heard such great things about it and we just knew we had to visit. The corn maze is amazing! It's tall and long enough so that you can't just see where the exit is but there are signs that tell a story with numbers to help you if you need the extra help. We let our kiddo take the lead and she followed the story signs which made it fun and a good challenge. Truth be told I would probably still be there if we had not followed the signs, I have a terrible sense of directions lol. This was a great way for our family to work together and get some cute fall pictures. Alexia was even super excited to find corn on the floor.
These pumpkin houses are amazing! They make for such cute fall pictures. A fall photoshoot here would be amazing during non peak hours. There was a line to get in but we didn't have to wait long. Theres was a pumpkin house line closer to the entrance and another one in the back. I suggest you head to the one in the back for a shorter line. The houses are the same and both take you through their flower garden.
Flower Garden Walk Through
After pictures with the pumpkin houses you get to walk through their flower garden. It's beautiful to just walk through and smell the flowers, enjoy the view or get some beautiful fall pictures.
Fair Games/Farm Fun
They had several unique carnival games to choose from but these are the ones we decided to try. This was the first time any of use had tried archery and the pumpkin blaster was also a ton of fun. We even came home with a new pet!
If you have been following us on social media you already know my daughter loves animals, so visiting their petting zoo was a must. They had so many animals and with every entrance into the zoo they gave you food to feed some of the animals. They had horses, donkeys, sheep, goats, pigs, chickens, peacocks, bunnies, emus, tortoise and a llama. There were so many animals to see and it was such a treat for us all.
Update 2022 New Highland Cows, Alpacas and more.
All the fun sure made us hungry and luckily there are many yummy options.
We had bacon wrapped hotdogs and some loaded corn. They also had tons of other options like Mexican food (tacos, nachos etc), BBQ Stand, and funnel cakes just to name a few. They had lots of seating available to enjoy lunch or dinner while being able to social distance. More on all precautions taken down below.
Pumpkins Pumpkins and more Pumpkins
This is a pumpkin farm so you know there were pumpkins of all colors, shapes, and sizes. You can pick your very own pumpkin from the farm or they have a stand with all of them picked for you and ready to take home. If you are visiting a pumpkin farm, getting a pumpkin is a given at least for us. Alexia looked and found the perfect one.
Admission prices vary per day. See calendar for pricing down below.
All Games, Rides & Attractions Not Included With Admission Range From 3 To 10 Tickets.
