First Comes Work
Then Comes Play

Work can actually be fun! Kids don't get bored on this farm as they explore, discover and create their own fun all while getting daily chores done. See what motivates them into doing their work first and then letting their imagination kick into action.

Everyone works together to get the chores done. The kids quickly discover that if the work gets done efficiently, they have more time for fun.

Little Pumpkin Pickers

This day on the farm is packed full of pumpkin fun, for babies, toddlers and everyone.

We will see cows, kittens and a pig named Wilbur, as we cruise around the farm in a John Deere gator.

The kids jump on bales, enjoy clowning around and seeing every site on this dairy farm.

After swinging on the porch and eating their lunch, they pack up their pumpkins in each of their trunks.

Time to go home, but please come back, there's a lot more to see, you're guaranteed that!
