Pennsylvania

Shady Brook Farm

 
Fall is our favorite time of year for field trips–the fields are bursting with pumpkins! Bring your group to experience the excitement of a real, working farm in Pennsylvania. The Fall Tour includes a wagon ride, a pumpkin that you can pick right from the field, barnyard animals, a giant corn maze, take a spin around the SBF 500 Racetrack, two Giant Jumping Pillows as well as other mazes and walk-through houses and more. Plus, in the fall we have bonfire inspired tours at night that can be used as a fundraiser. In the spring and summer we have lots of fun tours, which can include picking your own strawberries, blueberries, peaches, or participating in our "plant your own seed" activity. Fun is always in season at Shady Brook Farm!
