Each year, Miller Farms is pleased to work with thousands of individuals and school children to show folks of all ages what happens on a real working farm. Many people don’t realize that their food comes from a farm or that it just doesn’t appear in their local market. Our fall festival gives everyone the opportunity to not only explore the farm, but to also harvest their own vegetables!
During the fall harvest, everyone takes a tractor ride to our fields with stops along the way to pick their own vegetables. They’ll get the fun and educational experience of putting their hands in the dirt, and the rewarding benefit of picking fresh produce to take home to their families. All of our activities and harvesting are included in the cost of admission.
Begin your day by navigating your way through our corn maze. Visit ‘Antique Alley’ and enjoy your lunch in our picnic area, where we’ve got dozens of covered tables set up for your convenience. We have trash barrels and washing stations throughout, as well as several portable restrooms.
Take our hayride through 180 acres of fields where you can pick your own vegetables—potatoes, carrots, onions, beets, Indian corn, squash, peppers, and the list goes on! You may even get your very own pumpkin to take with you. If you aren’t up to picking your own, we always have plenty of produce on hand in the roadside stand.
We also have our chile roaster going for a wonderful treat! We do offer snacks, drinks and other delicious treats with food on the weekends! Besides the hayride that takes you to the fields to harvest, there are tons of other activities for you and the kids. We have a giant “Croc-pit” (imagine thousands and thousands of chopped-up Crocs in a giant pile-o-fun), corn maze, kids play areas, antique tractors, peddle tractors, a hay pyramid, farm animals, and a unique collection of oddities and activities.
