Plan Your Visit
Q: Are Dogs Allowed?
A: Dogs are not allowed in the U-Pick fields due to food safety concerns, however during Fall On The Farm, friendly dogs on 6 ft non-retractable leashes are allowed provided they are not reactive to situations found on a farm or in public places such as but not limited to animals, kids, dogs etc. Please note, we cannot allow dogs on the hayride due to the close proximity to other guests. We also cannot watch or “sit” your dog while you are “hayriding”.
Q:Are you picking today?
A: Strawberry season is Early/Mid May-Early June. During that time we post daily picking info here. Also, be sure to sign up for Berry Picking Updates and we’ll let you know when the crop is ready to pick!
Q: Why does your field close sometimes?
A: Sometimes we pick out of fruit and we need to rest the field to ripen for another picking tomorrow. We try very hard to manage the field for the greater good and sometimes closing a field that is picked out is the best option. This makes the most of your visit by ensuring when you come there are plenty of ripe, sweet, delicious berries to take home!
Q: Can I pick Blueberries?
A: We are working feverishly to increase our blueberry crop. By the end of 2018 we will have planted 4 additional acres of blueberries (4,000 plants). We expect our first harvest in June of 2021 or 2022. Until then we have just a few mature blueberry plants that we pick off of each year. To learn how to possibly get a picking ticket visit our U-pick page and scroll down to Blueberries. Be sure to sign up for Berry Picking Updates and we will keep you posted on the progress of our crop!
Q: Do Adults need to pay Admission for Farmyard Fun?
A: We are very proud that adults have so much fun playing with their kids on our farm. Adults do need a paid wristband. This process also helps us better monitor our play area and helps keep it a safe environment.
Q: Do you offer Birthday Parties, Family Reunions or other Group Events?
A: Yes! We absolutely love our birthday and Family Parties! Scouts, religious organizations and other groups also enjoy booking an event at our farm. We even offer ice cream, popcorn, softdrinks and more to make it easy for you. Learn more and book here!
Q: Do you offer Team Building opportunists for my Corporate Group?
A: Absolutely! We book many corporate groups and NEW for 2018 we are working with a partner team building company that will work directly with you to help you develop your team! We also book outdoor space for corporate working groups, company picnics or other events. Learn more and book here!
Q: What should I wear?
A: Consider we are an authentic working farm with uneven terrain and are of course susceptible to recent weather conditions. Gym shoes are always recommended over flip flops or heals but hiking boots are really the best especially if it’s rained recently or you plan on going in the corn maze etc.
Q: Are you wheelchair / stroller accessible?
A: We are working on becoming more wheelchair accessible but currently wheelchairs need to navigate turf and gravel. In the Fall, it is very difficult to take wheelchairs or strollers in the corn maze.
Q: What if it’s raining?
A: We are open and operate in a lite rain or mist but will close down attractions during inclement weather
Q: When do Sunflowers Bloom?
A: Our Sunflower field is planted to bloom the very first weekend or two of Fall On The Farm. In 2018 we’re trying to plant for a bloom starting Sept 22nd but weather often can move bloom forward or back. Always check our Fall On The Farm Page for current sunflower info. If you prefer, sign up for Sunflower field updates.
Q: In the Fall, what time is your last hayride?
A: 1/2 hour before close
Q: In the Fall, what time is the last corn maze entrance?
A: 45 min before close
Q: Is lunch available?
A: On the weekends in the Fall, concessions offers burgers, brats & hot dogs. The burgers and brats are from local, naturally raised animals. In the Fall, during the week, we may have pulled pork sandwiches available on busy days in the Market Barn.
