Busy Barns Adventure Farm happily invites you to come enjoy Acres of Adventures! Make plans to spend the day in the country as you interact with a variety of animals, play in the corn box, jump around in the hay mow, race through the obstacle course, dare to defy our 20-foot tunnel slides, take a trip on a hayride, enjoy puppet shows, animal demonstrations and much more! Our spring season welcomes baby animals born on the farm and special seasonal events. Fall ushers in harvest time with our trivia corn maze, u-pick pumpkin patch and Harvest Farmer's Market. Concessions on site are provided by the FFA Alumni Feedbag, including snacks, sandwiches, hot and cold drinks, and sweet treats. Check our website for specific dates, times and special events. We look forward to seeing you this spring and fall!

The owner, Mary, has paid great attention to detail at this wonderful, child-centered farmette and wedding facility. Children can spend hours petting baby pigs, holding kittens, feeding goats and just enjoying being around animals they normally don't see. Then they can run, jump, and walk on tin-can "stilts". There is easy access and egress onto Highway 18 and plenty of... More

My cousin had his wedding here the last weekend in August. When we first drove up, I could not believe how beautiful the place looked. The lawns were meticulously mowed and weed wacked, and the expanse of the place was amazing. They had a outdoor ceremony which was lovely. Afterwards, we went into the greeting barn where everything was set... More

We just don't care for it. Lots of things to do, but over priced and my kids have more fun at other places. I always feel like it's walking into a germ factory lol!

Took our almost-two-year-old there for some fall fun and she loved it! There is a lot for kids of all ages to do (corn mazes, ride-on toys, games, etc.). We had fun watching her and engaging with her in many of the farm activities, especially taking the hay ride to the field to pick out a pumpkin. It was nice... More

This is a really cute clean place to take your kids for an afternoon of fun. It is a beautiful piece of property and they have a very nice petting zoo. What is new there is the Gathering Barn, you can book it for events. I attended a wedding reception there and it mostly had to do with the decorations,... More

Busy Barns is a great place to hang out with the kids. It's fun for adults as well. It is not only a place for fun but the kids can learn a lot about animals and farming. They do a lot of work with the local Future Farmers of America. My wife and I love to go in fall and... More

My family loves this place. We try and visit twice a year (fall and spring). Partaking in the animals and activities is a great way to spend an afternoon. The staff is very, very friendly and knowledgeable. My boys loved chasing the piglets, petting the goats and going through the maze. We'll be back!

Beautiful! Fun! Educational! We have visited both during the Fall and Spring. Harvesting pumpkins and trekking the corn maze are annual activities for our family. Easter egg hunts and baby animals bring us back every year. We also enjoy their mums and pie pumpkins.
