PLEASE  BOOK AHEAD AND BUY TICKETS AND PARKING ONLINE AT THE SAME TIME. Do not buy tickets without parking or vice versa. If you don't see your preferred time and date available, this means that the dates aren't available or haven't been released yet. We are allowing minimal drop-in but ask that you arrive at 9:00 am as we fill up very completely.

For the morning interval, from 9:00 am to 1:30 pm, please arrive before 10:30 am or you may not get in.  To claim your reserved parking pass, you must be here by 11:00 am or your spot may be taken.

For the afternoon interval, from 2:00 pm to 6:30 pm, please arrive by 2:00 pm. Parking spots will be held until 4:00 pm.  If you are not here by then, your spot may be taken.

Country Store Shoppers and Pumpkin Patch Guests: Please note FREE ENTRANCE is limited to 9:00 am to 10:00 am.  After 10:00 am, in order to reduce overall farm capacity, a $3 entrance fee applies.  This charge provides walking access to the new pumpkin house and path, the pumpkin patch, and the country store. Guests are able to park in our free quick-stay spots in our yard or just outside the farm for a maximum of 1.5 hours. Handicapped parking spots are also available.

We recommend arriving early. Customers coming to enjoy the paid attractions must park in Parking Lot A (lower lot). Limited drop-in space will be allotted where customers can purchase admission tickets through an on-site designated booth. You can choose between a morning time-slot (9:30 am to 1:30 pm) or afternoon time-slot (2:00 pm to 6:30 pm). Note: If a customer arrives past the 9: 30 am or 2:00 pm arrival times, the maximum time available to park in this area is still 1:30 pm and 6:30 pm, respectively. We highly recommend arriving on time so you can maximize your time at the farm.  Parking on weekends in the lower lot now costs $8 per time slot, but those who purchase a family pass of 4 or more adults, arriving in one, car will receive one free parking pass .
