When are you open? Our fall season starts in mid-September and runs through Halloween day. We are open 7 days a week from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. Last maze entries are at 5pm and the last wagon ride departs at 5:30pm on weekends. We no longer offer the corn maze at night.
How much does it cost to get into the farm? We do not charge an admission to enter our farm. Some activities are free, and others have a small fee. Visit our activities page for prices and more information.
Do you have a petting zoo? Since we serve food on-site, we feel it is safest for us not to have any animals (unless you count our awesome giant rocking animals). However, we still have many other activities.
What age are the activities for? We have activities for all ages from the corn box for young children to the pumpkin slingshot for older children. Our two corn mazes are designed to meet any age and adventure level. Wagon rides are a great activity for the whole family.
Can we bring in a picnic lunch? While we do not restrict carry in food for individuals, we encourage you to choose from our wide selection of kitchen items. We do not charge admission to our farm and provide many free activities because of your support of purchasing the products we sell. Groups, parties, and special events wishing to carry-in or cater food must rent a facility. Alcoholic beverages are not permitted on our property except with exempted private events.
When is the best time to visit if I just want to shop the gift shop or pick out fall decorations? If you want to shop our gift barn and farm and not fight the crowds, remember that our farm is open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. everyday from mid-September through Halloween. Fair weathered weekend afternoons in October are usually our busiest days.
Do you close in bad weather? We are usually open in all weather. Most areas are grassy or paved around our barn. Our corn mazes are typically packed down after our first week. It may be sticky after a rain, but you will not sink into the mud. Otherwise, we are open sun or rain, cold or heat.
What type of clothes should we wear? While we work hard to keep our farm as neat as possible, remember that you will be visiting a farm. You may want to leave your new expensive shoes at home. Comfortable walking shoes are great and dress in layers as the day may warm up.
Are you facilities wheelchair accessible?Much of our facilities are wheelchair accessible. Our barn has access ramps. Much of our grassy area can be accessed with some wheelchairs. Some of our past customers have pushed a wheelchair through some our corn maze, but this can be a lot of work. Our wagon rides require 4-5 steps to load.
Are you open at night? We close at 6 pm daily. Please note that we no longer offer a nighttime corn maze, but there is more fun than ever during the day.
Do you have any haunted attractions? No, our farm focuses on the fun of the fall harvest and we do not have any haunted attractions. However, we still have many other attractions that appeal to all age groups!
Do you do field trips or group events? Yes, we do field trips during the week and many other group events. Visit our fieldtrip or group party page for more information. We do not offer a special birthday party package, but our normal group rates and rental facilities are available for birthday parties with the qualifying number of participants.
Are pets allowed? Dogs are allowed in outdoor areas, but they must be on a leash no longer than 3 feet and under complete owner control at all times. Please be respectful of other guests and understand that not every guest likes dogs. Dogs are not allowed within 50 ft of any food area, in the store or bakery area, on playground equipment, or on the wagon rides. Please clean up any messes your dog makes. No other animals are allowed.
Can we use your farm for taking photos? Please see our photo policy.
How do I get to your farm? We are located about 3 miles southwest of Janesville. Visit our directions page for more information.
