We've been here several times and it's always great fun. There are animals to pet, an ice cream shop, candy shop and a gourmet shop along with produce and freshly baked items. You can also go berry picking depending on the season.

I would give this place 5 stars if it wasn't so busy and packed every time we go. There's a cute little petting zoo and a small corn maze. They also have an ice cream shop, an adorable little gift shop with all sorts of goodies, some of the best corn on the cob I've had in my life, and... More

In the fall, it's great for picking out pumpkins, in the winter, they have Christmas trees, always have great gifts all year around. In the summer tons of fun! Grilled corn on the cob, like a petting zoo,but no petting really. Lots of yummy goods and sweets.

We enjoy our trips to the Avila Valley Barn because they always have fresh vegetables/fruit and our granddaughter love the farm animals that she can touch and feed. The Farm is always set up for the different themes of the seasons and holidays. We also love the freshly baked pies and deserts that are cooked at the facility.

This is an amazing establishment that sells a variety of crafts as well as yummy food and fruits and veggies. In the Fall they have a pumpkin patch and a variety of activities for the whole family. You will love it! Be sure to stop, it's really worth the time.

A neat place to take kids. There are farm animals, a sweet shop to buy treats or lunch type food. There are fresh fruits and veggies available. It is a cross between a farmers market and gourmet shop. They also sell freshly made baked goods. We had a delicious peach and raspberry pie. We had a great time in spite... More

Fresh produce and baked goods are yummy and a bit pricey. The kids love it. They go all out for the holidays which is fun. Of course the big draw for the little ones is feeding the animals. You can buy bags of wilted veggies to feed to the goats, llama, etc. I can only stand so much of it... More

A must see when you come through town. This barn is more of a farm with local produce, canned items, fresh baked pies, seasonal items (pumpkins in the fall) with a gift shop and happy farm animals to pet or feed along the way.
