Throughout our off-season, we are keeping up on maintenance work around the farm for our equipment and various buildings on the farm. Also, we are devoting quite a bit of time towards new ideas to make our farm & fall festival a better experience for you and your family.

We are a great place for families to come and have a great fall day. Come enjoy the animals, watch a pig race, see our famous Pumpkin Eating Dinosaur, have some lunch and pick out a pumpkin. We have plenty of fun attractions for the whole family! Also, make sure to stop by the Red Barn Café & Bakery for some tasty treats, including our famous Apple Cider Donuts and Pumpkin cookies.”
