When can we go?


May - October


Any top tips?

1) Bring your camera! 2) Dress for the weather-almost everything is outside. 3) Check out our Facebook page (great deals, contests...) 4) Create a new family tradition: pick you're own pumpkins! 5) There's a lot to do: set aside plenty of time. 6) Don't forget to visit our neighbors: Rainbow Ranch (horse riding), Oceana Winery & Vineyard (formerly Tartan Hill), Country Dairy, Double JJ Ranch-all located within three miles! 7) Weekends are busy, especially in the fall. 8) Please don't smoke in the barns - hay is very flammable. 9) Place food on your palm & keep your fingers straight (the animals can't see your digits!). 10) Bring a smile - leave with a bigger one!
