Every year for our Opening Weekend, we have made it a tradition to honor our local hometown heroes. This year, we are proud to partner with the Help4Kids Backpack Buddies Program! This non-profit organization is VERY close to our hearts as we see firsthand how they help our local children in need. All of the donations stay local and go directly to our children who are in need. Bring any combination of FIVE of the below items per person and get a FREE pass to return to our farm! Help us make sure no children in our community go hungry this season! The items are Canned Pasta, Canned Soup, Ramen Noodles Multi Pack, Individually Wrapped Crackers Multi Pack, Individually Wrapped Snacks, Vienna Sausages Multi Pack, and Single Serve Pudding Packs. 

Come out and enjoy our 6 acre Norma’s Play Area with ALL of our NEW ACTIVITIES for 2021, petting zoo, over 35 NEW farm animals, 6.5 acre corn maze, hay wagon rides, animal feedings, pony rides, food truck, and so much more while visiting with us on the farm! Don’t forget to grab your pumpkins and fall must haves before you leave! But most importantly- Let's Feed our Pumpkins!
