With the Covid-19 virus affecting our community, we have changed how we will run certain areas of the farm. The safety of our guests and employees (our family) is always our first priority, especially now. A visit to our farm in 2020 is going to look different than it did in the past, but we think you will still be able to have lots of fun and make some awesome memories! This year we have 2 corn mazes totaling 10 acres, 15 acres of nature trails, 3 pumpkin patches for 13 acres of u-pick fun! Patches are easy to walk to. Be sure to grab a wagon to haul your treasures back. You will find a 6 acre park area where we have a playground, farm animals, market, stream and socially distanced picnic tables placed throughout. Enjoy the outdoors, be nice, wear masks when social distancing can not be maintained and have fun.
We have to take certain things away for 2020 but never fear we have added some cool new things for 2020 that allow social distancing. Below are the things we have will NOT offer for 2020.
Hayrides will be at 50% capacity. You can book your ride when you arrive at the admission building. You will receive a ticket with your time slot on it. You are required to wear a mask while on the hayride.
MAZE GAME will be virtual.
Corn Castle will be closed for 2020.
Kiddie zip line will be closed for 2020 as social distancing is impossible for our staff and guests.

Our employees will wear a face covering when social distancing can not be maintained.

Hand Sanitizing + Hand Washing
This year we have added many more hand sanitizing stations. There will be sanitizer stations at every area throughout the farm. We have also added new hand washing stations near the animals.

We will have a designated attendant who will be cleaning all high touch areas of the farm including pumpkin wagon handles. Hayride drivers will be cleaning handrails between each ride.
We will be limiting the number of people allowed in a the market pavilion at one time. Market is an outdoor pavilion but certain times of the day it is busier than other times. We strongly suggest wearing a mask in the pavillion .
