Every October a fall festival is held here. We stopped in to visit the pumpkin patch. There are lots of carnival rides and food. You park in a field with many other cars so be patient. It's a fun way to spend a day.

We've done birthday parties and just been for the petting zoo. Always great family fun. Also the fall festival is better than any circus or fair ever ever been to.

We love the Octoberfest, from the pumpkin launcher, to the hayrides, to the corn maze, to the small plane aerial display (think crop duster) to the wonder food concessions, you have to at least see the 'FRIED EVERYTHING" trailer, they do fry everything imaginable in...More

I'm wondering why you feel that way. I went with my family and had an awesome time! $5 parking and $10 admission is not bad for everything they have for free! We saw all of their shows for free and it kept us entertained all day. We even went on the train which was DEFINITELY worth the extra $3. Plus kids 12 years and under are FREE! We spent the whole entire day at a beautiful festival for less money than we would have seeing a 2 hour movie.

Hi Rhubert23! I don't think that I gave Hunsader Farms a bad review, just my honest opinion. I stated that we all had fun, it's just not an event that we would go back to again next year.
is there an admisson charge ?
