Overview
More
We are a beef cattle farm that enjoys sharing the farm way of life with others. Our agri-tourism activities include a corn maze in the fall, greenhouses and fairy gardens in the spring, butterflies, 60 ft. underground slides, cow trains, historic carousel, country store and much, much more! We can keep kids of all ages busy for a full afternoon. Looking for a different meeting place? Consider our country tea parties held throughout the year. We do birthday parties, take rides to the pumpkin patch in season, offer field trips to schools and offer special activities for seniors as well. Most of our activities are handicap accessible.

The parents enjoyed the farm as much as the kids. The new additions were great. The kids loved the slides, feeding the animal, the corn house, and the rubber ducky race.

Came here on a warm summer day with our children and toddler aged grandchildren. Spent two hours here and still didn't have a chance to do it all. Carousel was fun and interesting for adults as well. Kids had a ball scrambling over things, sitting...More

This is a good place for a field trip! The highlights are a giant slide and a real carousel, which are fun for all ages. It's also fun to ride out into the pumpkin patch to pick your own pumpkin or find your way through...More

There is so much to do here so don't cut your time too short. Our little ones didn't want to get out of the corn pit but loved the slide too. The pig race is cheesy but otherwise this is a great family stop.
