I love picking peaches here! It is a great place to bring kids. they have a petting zoo and a little train for kids. They also have a garden you can pick from that is awesome and they do a fun pumpkin patch party during the month of October.

This was my families first time visiting Schnepf Farms. We took advantage of the pre-purchase deal at Fry's. As we walked in the entrance we immediately saw face painters. With a 11 and an 8 year old, we definitely liked this activity. Best thing is, we were able to tip the face painter what we thought was fair. The farm... More

I visited the farm this past Sunday 10/23, we were greeted by face painters who only asked for tips (not a thing wrong with that), I had already looked at the website and was aware that drinks, food, the train ride and a few other items would require an additional cost. We unfortunately didn't know our way around, so a... More

I have been to several pumpkin farms with my grandchildren and as a kindergarten teacher. This was my first visit to Schnepf Farms. After reading some of these reviews, I was hesitant to go. However, our experience was truly wonderful. We watched the pig race show, rode the carousel, played on the playground, visited the petting zoo, drove tractor bikes... More

Visited here with 6 adults a 6 year & 12 year old. Very pricey at $17 per person with no value. 6 year old had fun on the rides, but everything else was underwhelming. Run down and boring. Had more fun picking out a pumpkin at the grocery store.

I have been going to Schnepf Farms since I was a little girl. Naturally, I was excited to take my son for his first trip there with my husband and family! Unfortunately, it was quite a disappointment to see in just 2 years since I had been there last, the place has gone down hill, and fast. The entire farm... More

Sorry you were so disappointed in your return visit to the farm and it wasn't what you thought. We continually are putting money back into our farm, it just so happened the biggest chunk this year went to rebuilding our Farmhouse, since the fire in December. With no insurance, frankly, that took a big chunk of change that wasn't planned... More

Visited during their Pumpkin and Chili Party month, went Thursday when it was BOGO free coupon. $15 for one person. Still had to pay for the train and the food; the rock wall rules only let people 80lb and up climb, the new zip line for 10 years and up was closed as they were understaffed. New Jipsy show was...

Shnepf Farms is a cash grab...our nine year old daughter was very unimpressed. Everything once you pay to get in is extra. And I do mean everything. Entry is about 18.00 per person, so you would think you might be getting something interesting and fun. We found that the corn maze was pretty good, but everything else was really disappointing....

Hi Jennifer, I appreciate your review, but I must clarify some things just so people know that information was incorrect. Yes, there is an $18 admission at the gate, but pre-purchased tickets are also available at any FRY'S grocery store for $15 and on Thursdays SRP offers 2 for 1 coupons that you can bring to the farm for that...

Huge farm with rides, pumpkins, corn maze, etc. Just cannot fathom the amount of water that is needed to run this place, to the point where it is not okay. Animals, play grounds, good for a family adventure. Would recommend if you have little ones.

Thank you so much for the kind review, and we do use about 400acre feet of water a year...a lot of growing on the farm. Thanks! More
