Have A Nice Fall!

Just wanted to let you know that our Fall season has started and runs through the month of October!!!

If pumpkins are what you want you may either pick your own or choose one from our display... anytime except Saturday and Sunday afternoon when you're invited to join us for Family Fun Days.

If you are wanting to add lots of fun activities to pumpkin pickin', come see us Saturday and Sunday afternoons from 1PM-7PM. Admission is $7 (children under 2 are free). Escape the hustle and bustle of city life and peacefully stroll our real life farm. Admire farm animals in the Critter Corral. Watch firsthand the art of rope making, hay baling, and apple cider making (when available). Kids 9 and under will enjoy or Pumpkin Playground. And there's more...
Root for your favorite duck in our first ever REAL LIFE duck races!! Watch our new Punkin Chunkin' Catapult launch pumpkins. Jump in the hay wagon and enjoy a scenic ride through the timber. The kids will want to board the Hickory Creek Express (our barrel train) for a jaunt around the farm. And don't forget to get lost in our corn maze. If just takin' it easy on a bench drinkin' apple cider, enjoying the fresh country air is your forte', feel free to do that too!!
Whatever you choose you will make memories that will last for a lifetime!
Speaking of making memories last, how long has it been since you had a family picture taken? Don Runyon with Treasured Images in Pittsburg is planning to be with us on October 16-17. He's got some great affordable packages and will be available to take your picture behind the barn!
So plan to join us this Fall!

What better place to have a family reunion than on the farm.
Begin planning now to meet up with your family at Hickory Creek Farms. There are things to do for every age group.

The grandkids can ride horses, ride on the train with Grandma, milk a cow and ride on a tractor...

While the aunts, uncles, and grandparents watch the fun!

At the end of the day you can all enjoy a hayide together!!

Come on out for some family fun!

Spring Season

We began our spring season with a great field trip. What fun having 27 lively, cute-as-bugs kindergartners from Garfield Elementary come to the farm! We watched chicks hatch and enjoyed the beautiful Spring day from a bouncing hayride through the timber.

Then the kids helped us plant pumpkins and pet baby ducks, turkeys, chicks, lambs and calves...Fun, fun, fun!!

Springtime Is Here At Last

There is so much going on at the farm already as we prepare for spring. We have put together a great spring field trip for you and your group here at Hickory Creek Farms.
Starting April 1 through the end of the school year you are welcome to join us for a fun time on the farm.

If you are planning to visit us, plan on about 2 hours for the adventure that you will take, then add about another half hour if you want to bring a picnic lunch and eat at our picnic area.

So much fun is waiting for you if you come to Hickory Creek Farms this spring. There are baby animals to pet, hay wagons to ride, horse rides to take, woods to take a nature hike through...

and of course, our famous train ride.

We can't wait to see you soon...don't forget to bring your camera to take a picture of the good time that your class will have as they get outside after the long winter indoors!
