Live Bluegrass Music- This year 3 different Bluegrass bands are featured twice daily. Starting at 10:00 sharp and continuing throughout the day! You will hear some of the Best toe-tapping Bluegrass around featuring the Shepherd Family Band, Snaky Woods, and Whistler's Bluegrass. Bring your folding chairs and pick a good spot.
Climb aboard our historic railroad. It is a REAL TRAIN pulled by some of the most historic locomotives in America. The train runs throughout the day.
Weird Beard Contests- All day long we will have some crazy, silly, and downright weird beard contests. If you think your beard has got what it take to be a winner then sign up as you arrive. All you babyfaces get to set back and enjoy!
Hop on the tractor ride to a little town in the woods and get ready for a Family Feud in the theme of the Hatfields and McCoys, but it's the Beards Vs. the Babyfaces! That little town ain't BIG enough for both families so one has to go!
Spring Farm Babies Petting Area- Meet the Spring farm babies. This isn't your typical petting area, you can meet all kinds of critters including skunks that don't smell and racoons and possums that love treats.
Amusement Rides- Enjoy the farm's Italian Carousel, Antique Ferris Wheel, and other amusement rides!
Be sure to check out the Barbecue and other food options to fill your belly. *Food is additional cost.
