ACTIVITIES INCLUDED WITH ADMISSION
Find the perfect pumpkin in our pumpkin patch to take home with you.
Have fun running through the acre-sized hay bale maze! Perfect for younger navigators.
Ride along on a bale of hay through acres of corn and soybean fields, over the river, and through the woods.
Big & Little Critter Barns
Newborn goats and calves, pet-ably friendly chickens, a miniature horse, a draft horse, a sheep, a bunny, an ox, and more.
Find your way through our 4-acre corn maze, with images of a tractor, barnyard animals, and the big barn visible from above. It’s tougher than the Hay Maze, so don’t get lost!
Imagine a giant sandbox filled with corn kernels. Need we say more?
