great outdoor fun

This was a highlight of our weeklong vacation. We loved all the neat outdoor activities and the carousel indoors.

This is a good place for a field trip! The highlights are a giant slide and a real carousel, which are fun for all ages. It's also fun to ride out into the pumpkin patch to pick your own pumpkin or find your way through the corn maze.

My daughter-in-law took my granddaughter and I to tea at Back Home on the Farm. It was wonderful. The most delightful small sandwiches, scones and desserts along with our hot tea. Such a nice way to teach about the use of china, silverware, cloth tablecloths, and manners. It was a delightful experience.

The owners were very friendly and accommodating. My boys enjoyed the butterfly sanctuary, the play areas, the carousel, and the tractor train ride. It was a large property to explore and a safe place to let the little ones loose. The adults (including parents and grandparents had a ball too). Highly recommend.

We stop in to look around , we did not have grandson with us. It would be a great place for family bonding with busy parents and young children. Lot of things to burn energy and learn about farming. If you are toy tractor and farm equipment a very nice collection.

There is so much to do here so don't cut your time too short. Our little ones didn't want to get out of the corn pit but loved the slide too. The pig race is cheesy but otherwise this is a great family stop.

Such a lovely place! They offered half price for grandparents, which was very nice. I don’t think enough places value the grandparents enough to do that. They offer a tractor ride to the pumpkin patch, and my nephew loved it. We rode the tractor a few times just because. They have a variety of pumpkins to pick from. My nephew... More

Our whole family really enjoys going to Back Home on the Farm every year! So much so, we had our sons 3rd Birthday party there this year, and it was a blast! There is something for everyone from the mountain slide, wagon ride out to the huge pumpkin patch, corn maze, cow train, antique carousel, little kid play area, corn... More

Tripadvisor reported this place was open from 10AM-4PM. M-F they are open 9AM-1PM. I was allowed to stay around to take photos. Enjoyed the whimsical displays in the butterfly house. Will need to go back to check out the activities in the Fall.

This is a MUST for families---especially in the fall! You have the traditional pumpkin patch, but there is so much more here! The tunnel slide is a highlight and can accommodate kids of all ages! (Meaning, mom and dad could play as well!) There is a carousel that is very popular with the youngsters. Well organized and lots of fun!
