farm activities for children
A fun place for kids – lots to see and do!
Alstede Farms is a fun family destination that children enjoy visiting. In addition to Pick Your Own, hay wagon rides, and seasonal activities like our A-Maze-Ing Corn Maze and Evergreen Adventure Maze, we offer lots of fun activities just for kids: Pony Rides, Bouncy House, Wagon Train Rides, Giant Hay Pyramid, Toy Duck Races, Barnyard Lasso, and feeding our friendly farm animals. Your children will enjoy visiting a real working farm; they will see farm fields, orchards, and tractors. Please visit our Hours of Operation page for specific times of availability. For your convenience, we offer free parking, dining options, rest rooms, and a baby changing area.
Please note that there are height and weight restrictions on children’s rides.
One of our farm attendants will accompany your child as they experience the thrill of their first pony ride! Pony Ride tickets may be purchased at the admission shed.
All kids love to jump and our Bouncy House is a great place to get your wiggles out! Bouncy House tickets may be purchased at the admission shed.

Children enjoy sitting in their own “train car” as they are pulled along by one of our tractors. Tickets may be purchased at the admission shed.
