2011 Farm Activities Include:

Hayride & Pumpkin Patch – Climb on board one of our hay wagons and take a ride in the country down to the pumpkin patch where everyone gets to pick that “just right” pumpkin to take home with them. This is also the perfect location for beautiful fall photographs.

Duck Races – Come propel your “rubber ducky” down the shoot and into the water trough by pumping an old fashion hand water pump while racing your friends!!

Cow Train – Hop on board, fasten your seatbelt, and get ready to ride one of our 10 cows powered by a lawnmower! You may choose Moo-Linda, Bessie, Sweet Pea, Big Bertha or one of the others but they are all guaranteed to put a smile on your face!

Steer Roping – Say you always wanted to be a cowboy? Well here’s your chance, and you don’t even have to worry about falling off of your horse!

Petting Farm – Visit with Bunny the Pony, Elvis & Pearl the Donkeys, Claude the Llama, Vanilla & Chocolate the Sheep, Cheese & Quackers the Ducks, AbraHAM & LINKon the Pigs, Henny Penny, Miss Prissie, and a host of their other barnyard friends.
