Where are we going today?
It's so lovely when you find a farm that you can spend the day with your family on - playing with all the cute farm animals. But...it's GREAT when you find a farm that is so much more than cute animals, and is FILLED with other kids fun!
Welcome to Hill Ridge Farms! No need to reserve your spot here - just head on down and walk-in!. Everyone is welcome! Hill Ridge Farms have gone out of their way to create a fun environment for all members of the family.
Of course, there is the fun farm animal corral, where kids can experience those barn animals up close. Maybe they'll make a new friend! But there is also other fun activities to keep the whole family entertained across the day.
How about taking a fun train ride? Choo Choo the conductor's ready! There are hayrides to be enjoyed, and kids can even try their luck at gem stone panning - you never know what you'll find!
We're not done yet! Kids can try and take on the colorful maze, or get BOUNCY on the jumping pillow or in the bounce house!
There are slippery times to be had on the 80ft (yes we said 80 ft!) slide, and the corn playhouse is always a popular experience. With all that excitement comes energy, so kids can work it off on the swings, and have a run around the picnic areas. There are even fish to feed! Super cute fun!
Don't forget if you are having your birthday soon, it's a great place for kids to bring their friends so they can ALL have a great day with the animals. Small warning though - it might tickle when an animal eats from your hand - you've been warned!
Great farm fun on your family day out at Hill Ridge Farms.

My daughter had a blast, it was a lot of fun for us all.

Visited for the Christmas lights and had a great time with my family. Our two year-old didn't appreciate the high-quality Santa photo stop, but had a great time going down the dark slide that scared me a little. The hay ride and the train were fun, but be sure to bundle up if the weather is cold.

Hill Ridge Farms is a beautiful place and provides a great fall setting with a very relaxed atmosphere. The biggest issue I have, though, is how expensive it is. I can understand $10 for adults but it is also $10 for children over 2! It costs $40 for a family of 4 for about 2 hours of activity. In comparison, Marbles Kid's Museum charges only $5 per person. It is really unfortunate because it is such a unique place.

Clean, attractive, a lot of activities, and expensive.

To start off it was $40 dollars for just myself and my 2 children to walk in...Noticed right away that the bees were bad and they were every where. We were not even there an hour before my daughter got stung by one of the bees while in the Bounce House. A staff member came to me and asked if she had been stung and I replied "Yes" and she said "Your daughter needs first aid" and I said "I don't know if she is allergic to bees" she raised her voice at me very rudely. The owner came out and she was no help either. So to sum it up I spent $40 dollars...Read More

The owner came out and she was no help either. So to sum it up I spent $40 dollars for less than an hour for my kid to be stung by a bee. I would not recommend this place to anyone because the bees are so bad they are swarming every where and if your child happens to be allergic DON'T go there. Total waste of money.
