  • This place is pretty great. We came on a Friday afternoon. Free admission. Free parking. $4.50 per ticket for the corn maze. There is no map available for the corn maze (which I think makes it more fun). Staff at the gift shop was friendly and talkative. Lots of walking! Corn rooms and lots of opportunities for kids to play. Tons of pumpkins to pick. Adequate parking on both sides of the road. Missing a star only because they don’t have roasted corn to eat! Food wasn’t available to purchase because it was a Friday but even so, no roasted corn! I also wish there was more interpretation about the history of the farm. Historic buildings have interpretive signs and there’s some old farm equipment out, but I was craving more information about the history! What they have is like a teaser! Which surprises me because the Dollinger’s operate the farm (according to staff at gift shop). Would love to know more about the past. Definitely recommend coming here whether you have kids or not. Most paths are gravel. Few are grassy. Fewer are paved. Great teepee and a ton of fall photo picture op. set-ups!
  • This was our second year going and it's become a family favorite.. it's not commercialized like other fall farms that are charging like $30+ a person.. it's FREE so you shouldn't come here expecting that at all.. and that's what we love about it.. a real family feel farm that's not overwhelming but enough activities to keep the kids happy.. plenty of photo ops, plenty of pumpkins, play areas, corn maze, hay rides and train rides, face painting, food and picnic areas, farm animals and a bit more.. all paid activities were under $5 each
