Thank You for a Fun 2018 Season!

That’s a wrap, friends! Another season has come and gone at the Fun Farm, and we can undoubtedly say this was one for the books! There’s nothing we love more than having hundreds of families and friends from all over the Midwest region come out and enjoy the fall festivities at the farm! We were thrilled to see all the new and familiar faces join us for the 2018 season.

Fun Farm at Dusk

First thing’s first, we want to say thank you to all of our fantastic volunteers and hardworking employees who gave up countless hours and put in the hard work to ensure this season was a success! There were a lot of moving parts with new activities, attractions and operations — but it all came together smoothly. Again, thank you to those who were a part of making this happen. We couldn’t have done it without you!

Girl in Corn Pit

To those of you who carved out time in your schedule to treat your family and friends to a day (or two or three) at the Fun Farm, we’re so glad that you did! It’s always a joy getting to watch kids run around on the playground, jump on the jumbo jumper, play in the corn pit, pick pumpkins from the pumpkin patch or check out all of our sweet barn animals, just to name a few things.


This year, one of our highlights of the season were all of the priceless photos so many of you shared from your trip(s) to the Fun Farm. We couldn’t get enough of the smiles and sweet moments while doing all of the activities! If we had to narrow the photos down to one theme it would be…families having fun. These fun times and memories made are why we do what we do.


Pony at Fun Farm


Another highlight worth mentioning was naming the farm’s newest pony. In case you missed it, we opened it up to our Fun Farm community and asked everyone to submit names they thought would be most fitting for her. Spoiler alert: we went with Ginger! Our girl is healthy and getting bigger everyday. Thanks again to everyone who participated in naming her!

Family on Hay Bales

Who’s already anticipating the 2019 season? We have some exciting things ahead for the upcoming year that we’ll be sharing with you over the next few months. One thing you’ll want to stay tuned for is the rollout of our NEW website! As we’re always looking for ways to improve your experience and interaction with us, we thought a fresh, easy-to-navigate website was one way we could do it.


If you’re looking to stay up to speed on all that’s happening at the Fun Farm, now you can! Sign up for our email list for updates on how our barn animals are doing, progress on the website launch, what’s new for 2019 (and more). We look forward to keeping in touch with you!


Thank you all for making the 2018 season a year to remember! Can’t wait for the next one!
