Plan Your Visit

The farm is always bustling with activity.  From baby animals, to culvert slides and outdoor games.  Bring the whole family to spend the day just because, or for one of our many special events.


Spring on the farm is all about baby chicks. Come take a peek at the goodness of life on the farm.

Our awesome culvert slides and picnic areas are open year-round, but now is a good time to come and visit our baby chicks in the brooder, as well as Atticus the pygmy goat (and companion goats coming soon). Grab lunch from our deli and enjoy it in the spring sun by the creek!

This year’s events kick off with the annual springtime Fantasy Festival. Put some Spring in your Wings as we invite guests out to welcome warmer weather with dancing pixies, face painting, performances, puppets, a costume contest, vendors, and much more!


During the summer months, our Big Barn is the happening place to be every other Friday night!

FRIDAY NIGHT BARN DANCES: Put on your dancing shoes and boot scoot on the dance floor to one of our esteemed local band favorites from 6-9pm! Many of the shows will begin with a square dance or other dance lesson. Admission is $7. HNG Catering will also have quite the spread available for dinner.

U-PICK: Starting in late June, our U-Pick berry orchard fills with organically raised blueberries, blackberries, and black raspberries in their respective seasons. Berries are finicky, and their timing varies from year to year, so give us a call to find out the berry status!


Autumn is a special time at the farm! We offer all sorts of fun activities for families and visitors of all ages.


DO AND SEE: Tear around the trike track, climb a hay pile, watch us press fresh cider, take a plunge in the corn pit, whiz down the culvert slides, visit with the baby chicks, piglets, goats, and calves, relax and eat lunch in our picnic areas, choose a pumpkin from our field or barnyard, hike the nature trail, and stock up on apples for all your fall culinary needs!

RIDES: Rides offered on Saturday and Sunday from 10am-3:30pm.  Hay Rides and Cart Rides are included with weekend admission.  Horse rides are additional and scheduled upon arrival.

Check our events page for fall events such as Renaissance Festival and Halloween festivities!


Shop our farm store while you warm up with a hot cup of cider, bowl of soup, or scrumptious sandwich.
