Worth the Drive: Piney Acres Farm in Fortville

Piney Acres Farm in Fortville got its name because it started as a Christmas tree farm. But in the fall, it turns a new leaf and offers autumn-themed adventures and family fun all around its 73-acre farm. This year, the farm’s fall season is open to the public starting September 29, and goes through October 31, 2018.


New Attractions at Piney Acres

Families can expect to experience some new attractions this year, including daily duck races, an apple/pumpkin cannon and a new racecar track where young riders can zoom around on pedal cars. The “Barnyard Twister” experience is another new attraction, and will turn you around (and probably knock you off your feet!) as you try to make it through. Try not to get lost in the farm’s eight-acre corn maze, which is included in the general admission price this year.


Fall Activities

Piney Acres will also offer other fall activities, including hay rides that will give you a sneak peek around their Christmas tree farm, a barrel train for young children, a bounce pad, animal encounters, a gem min and, of course, a U-pick pumpkin patch to pick a perfect pumpkin to take home.
