No vehicles will be allowed on the hayride roadway or in the sunflower field for everyone’s safety on July 16 & 17, 2021.

We are also doing ticketed admission to space out guest arrivals and limiting the amount of people able to enter each hour.
Q: Will there be handicap parking?
A: Yes, handicap parking will be available as close as possible to the barn. Just have your tag up in your rear view mirror and let the gate workers know you need a handicap space. Handicap spaces do fill up quickly and we will do our best to provide one for you if needed. If one is not available, we will try to park your car as close as possible to handicap parking.
