Fall Activities

Things to do this fall at the farm:

To make your decision easier, we have packaged some of our special activities together for you this fall, to offer an “access it all” wristband. If this does not fit your needs, we still offer all of our activities “ala carte”.  If purchasing activities separately, tokens are $1/each, do not expire and are non-refundable. Please remember some activities have height/weight restrictions as well as time restrictions.  All activities are weather dependent.  Specials subject to change based on availability.
