Fall is one of the most popular times here.

Guests can make their way through a 5-acre Zinnia Maze, play on the Roly Poly and kiddie climb, or take a 25-minute narrated hayride around the farm while learning about its history.

Of course, there’s also an epic pumpkin patch with every type of pumpkin you could think of. They have giants, minis, and warty gourds as well as mums, corn stalks, and hay bales for sale.
