Pumpkin Patch
Your farm adventure will include a tractor-pulled hayride down to our HUGE pumpkin patch! Each student will have a blast picking out their very own pumpkin to take home with them. Teachers and parents will enjoy our large selection of decorative pumpkins and gourds available to purchase. Don’t forget the camera, this is one of many great photo opportunities!

Corn Maze
Can’t see over! Can’t see under!
You’ll have to use the clues to find your way out.
It is a safe, fun, and unique adventure that is sure to please!

The 6 acre Corn Maze is carved from towering cornstalks. Can’t see over!  Can’t see under!  You’ll have to use the clues to find your way out.  It is a safe, fun, and unique adventure that is sure to please.  Our maze will have a different theme each year. 2015’s theme is the “Maze” maze. Trivia questions about the history of “mazes” are strategically placed throughout the maze.  If you can answer them correctly, they will help navigate your way out.    Do you think you can find your way out?  We’re sure you can, but not before a few detours!

Mr. Ray’s Horse Lesson
What a special treat! Ray Gilmer has trained nearly 50 world champion horses over is 40 year professional career. He is a member of the Tennessee Walking Horse Hall of Fame, and loves to share his knowledge of this wonderful animal with young people. This will include a live demonstration with a horse and a lesson on all things equine. History, anatomy, advances in veterinary medicine, etc. Mr. Ray will field questions from students and teachers following the lesson. This is always a favorite for students and teachers!

Petting Zoo
Your trip to the farm wouldn’t be complete without a visit to our petting zoo! It is filled with lots of fun, furry and feathery friends. You will have the opportunity to pet and feed some of the animals if you choose. There are educational signs about all of our animals in the zoo so that you can learn about each one.
