Fall is aMAZEing at the farm!
We have new activities in the works, events on the calendar and new items on our menu!
The Corn is a-MAZE-ing!
We’re proud of being Harrisonburg and Rockingham County’s original corn maze! This year’s design is a surprise! Watch our Corn Maze page for the special announcement! We have about 5 acres of interactive fun, with a few games and puzzles thrown in.
Pick your own pumpkin from our 5+ acre patch — and because it’s a little farther down the holler from the rest of the activities, treat yourself to a hayride (handicap accessible) that will drop you off in the pumpkins! We grow about 20 different varieties, chosen especially because they make great jack-o-lanterns, they were pretty, or just too unusual to pass up!
Pig Races at Squealer Downs!
Our racing pigs put on a show every day — check the posted racing schedule so you don’t miss them. Choose your favorite pig to “root” for and enjoy the antics of our BossHog announcer and sidekick cousin, Cletus. There’s no end to this corny jokes in this performance ! Our porkers race for the fun of it, and a cookie, of course.
Our barnyard play area boasts a delightful Sound Garden for sprouting musicians of all ages and sizes! Meet Molly – the Milk Cow, take a ride on our Pedal Tractors, play a round of Barnyard Golf, or try your hand at the Rubber Ducky Races! We even have a Straw Maze for you to wander through. And don’t forget the slingshots! They’re one of our favorite activities!
Ride the Carousel!
There’s only one Virginia Carousel! Located in it’s own building at Back Home-on the Farm, this thirty horse merry-go-round has been lovingly restored and painted to feature famous Virginians, Virginia products, places and landscape.
