Fun Farm Activities:

Adults are $6 + tax and children are $8 + tax  (children 2 and under are free!). You’ll be able to take part in all of the fall fun the farm has to offer: hay wagon rides, corn maze, corn pool, slides, water pump duck races, grain wagon hoops, and toss games.

Fields of Fun:

Corn Pools: It’s not a sand box, it’s corn! We loaded piles of corn kernels in a few bins and some sand box toys (like little tractors). With bales of straw around the bins, it’s easy for children to get in and out of the corn. Kids love it (parents too). On Festival weekends only!

Grain Wagon Hoops: Shoot some hoops inside our hoop-adapted grain wagon. Set the top farm score for making the most shots in a row! Some of the hoops are high enough to challenge adults, while there are lower hoops so children can join in too!

Corn Hole Toss Game: Try your hand at this classic American toss game. Choose up teams and toss away!

Pedal Tractors: Pedal around the activity area on several of our John Deere child-size pedal tractors.

Corn Maze: Stroll through our corn maze. Will you be able to find your way out?

Pipe Slides: Enjoy some good fun while sliding down one of two large pipe slides.

Hay Wagon Rides: Hay wagon rides are a favorite for everyone! Our hay wagons are pulled by restored antique tractors. You will travel around and through our orchard. It’s a great way to see the fall colors on the hillsides that rise  above the nearby Raccoon River.

Duck Races: Using hand operated water pumps, pump water down pipes to rush your ducks to the finish line!

Barnyard:

Our friendly barnyard animals (chickens, goats and 3 little pigs) will be there to greet you when you visit.
Come and say “hi” to our entertaining goats, chickens and baby pigs. The Barn Yard viewing is free.

U-pick:

Apple picking and pumpkin picking is open during festival weekends based on crop availability! For apple picking please refer to our apple availability chart. If you only want to pick apples or pumpkins or visit our store, there is no activity fee. But why stop there when there’s so much to do at Wills Family Orchard!

Fresh and Take-Home Food:

Fresh, handmade foods such as apple cider donuts, caramel apples, Queen’s Apple, sliced apple pie, and more.  Brats, hot dogs, and chips (or other lunch food items) are available beginning at 11:00 am on festival weekends only. Enjoy tasty homemade goods, and so much more!

Treats and Eats:

It’s made right here, it’s fresh, and it’s awesome! You will absolutely love our homemade treats. Beginning at 11:00 am on festival weekends, we’ll also have lunch food options like brats, hot dogs, pickle on a stick, and chips available for purchase.

Your mouth is probably watering just looking at these photos. Some of our signature treats are the apple cider donuts, Queen’s Apple Dessert, and a fresh slice of apple pie. We also have fresh apple cider and much more. There’s a sweet treat for everyone.
