There’s nothing really corny about Hee Haw Farms in October — except for maybe the corn box, corn cannon and corn maze — but that’s the type of corny we like to hear about.
Hee Haw Farms is now open for October bringing back all of your favorite family-friendly Halloween festivities including hayrides, hay jumps, petting farm, animal train ride and more. And that is all included in general admission. We also have pumpkins available for purchase.
“I can’t believe how this farms grows every year,” said Steve Aten, a longtime attendee. “From the new addition of the silo slide and the horse shoe pits added to all of the regular activities, there is something for everyone. I love to gather my family here and watch my grandkids enjoy the fall festivities. If I had one complaint, it would be there is too much to do and I have to follow the grandkids in too many directions. “
Also part of the $6 general admission is the bi-weekly Trick-or-Treat Hayride. On Saturdays from 12 p.m.– 3 p.m. and on Mondays from 5 p.m.– 7 p.m. grab your candy bag, climb in the wagon and prepare for costumed friends to throw treats into the wagon as you ride around the pumpkin patch.
For those with a spooky bone looking for something a little less eary and a little more eerie, the Haunted Hayride or Cornevil Night Terrors is the scary solution you’ve been looking for. After the sun goes down, climb into Hee Haws wagon and take a chilling ride through their 154-year-old barn or brave a walk through haunted corn, woods and around a creepy swamp for only an extra $5 (per haunt) added onto general admission.
Be sure to save the date for the annual Giant Pumpkin Drop on Oct. 25. Your jaw will drop as pumpkins demonstrate the laws of gravity dropping over 16,000 pounds of pumpkins on a target. Not only is this event wildly entertaining, but it is Hee Haw Farms way of giving back; the money raised at the Giant Pumpkin Drop is donated to the March of Dimes! A Dime a Pound for Babies. The drop begins at noon and ends at dusk.
Watch this and you won’t want to miss the drop!
