HAY BARN: Kids can roam the hidden passages in the NEW Hay Barn and slide down the slide. FREE TO OUR CUSTOMERS! OPEN DAILY!
CORN MAZE: Find your way through the twists and tangles of our corn field. We made the corn maze big enough for your amusement and small enough so you can find your way back to us. FREE TO OUR CUSTOMERS! OPEN DAILY!

PICTURE CUT-OUTS: All of our attractions are a picture opportunity waiting to happen, but most especially our cutouts where you can be a sheep, cow, horse, just to name a few. Our cutouts were painted beautifully by Maria Burd.
PONY RIDES: Pony rides are offered by Windy Hill Ranch. There are ponies available for both adults and children. Pony rides run every Saturday, Sunday, and Columbus Monday (weather permitting) from 11am to 5pm. Fee: $5 per rider (cash only)
APPLE SLINGSHOT: : How good is your aim? Purchase 3 apples for $1.00 or 20 apples for $5.00. Shoot them out of a slingshot at various targets.
SEE CIDER BEING MADE: — Unfortunately, due to COVID restrictions and in an effort to enhance our sanitation practices we cannot allow anyone into the cider room for our 2021 season– Watch Gary Ritter make cider. See the whole process from the hopper, conveyor belt, grinder, the pulp being pumped to the rack, cider being squeezed from the pulp layered on the rack and being pumped into a refrigerated bulk tank where it is then poured into jugs. Get a free taste straight from the press or from the bulk tank. Educational and entertaining for the whole family. We usually press every Saturday and Sunday until 1:00 p.m. and during the week as needed. It is always a good idea to call to verify days and times of pressing cider if you want to see it being made, but the press is available to view during our seasonal hours and someone can explain how it works.
