  Tour Features

  • Educational chat with one of our Education Specialists about growing pumpkins, farm animals, and life on the farm. We strive to meet the GLE’s for both Missouri and Kansas for each grade level.
  • Wagon ride out to the pumpkin patch*
  • Fall decorative produce for each child**

Arriving back from the wagon ride, we will help organize your bounty at your storage/lunch tables which will free you up for self guided:

  • Visiting nose to nose with the farm animals at the Animal Corral
  • Exploration time in the Pumpkin Shed Maze, Noah’s Play Yard, Jumping Pillows (age 3 -12), and IMAGINATION BUS plus much more!

*We try to make our farm impervious to the weather. However, in the event of severe weather, we reserve the right to cancel the hayride and field access for safety reasons, and substitute another fun activity. Please call 24 hours in advance if you’d like to reschedule.
**Subject to Mother Nature: We will substitute other fall produce (Indian corn, gourds, etc.) in case of crop failure.
