Does it get muddy when it rains at the farm?

Keep in mind, Harvestville Farm is a real working farm. Some of our walking areas are mulched or graveled, but most of our surfaces (including the entire maze) are dirt, which gets muddy after it rains. The safety of our guests is always at the forefront when we have recently had rainy weather, but it is wise to come dressed accordingly if the weather has been wet.

Sorry, we do not allow pets on Harvestville Farm's property, whether on a leash or in your arms.
