The Russell family has owned their farm land for over 50 years, utilizing the ground for such operations as a dairy farm, pig farm, miniature horse farm and raising such crops as corn, beans, wheat, and oats. Over the years the family has worked hard to expand their operation to include fun activities for the public to enjoy! Admission includes all activities and kids 2 or under are free!
The Pumpkin Patch
Several varieties of pumpkins are grown at Russell Farms. Individuals, groups, or classes can take a ride on a hay wagon to pick their own special pumpkin.
There are two corn mazes this year, depending on the amount of time you are wanting to spend at the farm and/or level of difficulty. A smaller 5 acre maze with a scavenger hunt theme is available for anyone wanting to find their way around while searching for designated farm items throughout the maze. A larger 10 acre, scavenger hunt maze is available for those with more time and eager for a real challenge.
A country store is located on the farm, full of Fall decorations, fudge, apple butter, toys, candles, clothing, candy, apple cider, and much more!
Farm Exhibits and Petting Zoo
The Russell’s know that most children and adults come to a pumpkin patch to have fun and get a pumpkin! While doing so, almost every fun activity has an educational farm theme alongside it or an actual person to talk to and answer questions. While having fun everyone is learning a little here and there about the farm culture!
The farm animal exhibit has been enlarged for anyone wishing to learn the animals’ habits and usefulness on a farm. Visit the many boer goats, pygmy goats, turkeys, pigs, miniature horses, peacocks, ducks, chickens and more! Everyone can enjoy petting and learning the roles that these animals have on the farm.
