Fall Fun by the Bushel at Cherry Crest Adventure Farm – Thomas Family Reporting

Kimberly No Comments

Recently, the Thomas Family (FtF Charter #46) went on assignment to Cherry Crest Adventure Farm in Lancaster, PA.  Here is their report about the agritainment experience.


We had the pleasure of visiting Cherry Crest Adventure Farm in Lancaster, Pennsylvania recently and absolutely enjoyed our experience.  The farm, which is open from May through November, is situated on over 15 acres of pristine land and there are over 50+ activities – there is truly something for everyone in your family!

We visited on a busy Saturday ~ there was already quite a crowd at 11am, but parking is free and extremely well organized.   We quickly parked and made our way to the gates.  There were two small lines at the entrance that moved quickly and before we knew it, we had our bracelets on and we were ready for our adventure!

What an amazing place Cherry Crest Adventure Farm is.  We were greeted with the sights and sounds of happiness!  Colorful signs, maps and staff pointed us in the right direction…The only challenge was trying to agree on what fun activity to try first!  The farm has a great “flow” and even though there were many families enjoying the day at Cherry Crest Farm, we never felt rushed or crowded.  Almost all of the activities encouraged parents and kids to play together!  We loved this aspect of the farm adventure– instead of watching from the sidelines, we were able to participate right alongside our boys.  From pedal kart races to the “Music through the Decades” themed corn maze to the Farm Tour Wagon Ride, we smiled and laughed all day!  We even made butter at the Discovery Barn!  We especially enjoyed the interactive (and educational!!!) exhibits throughout the farm and really appreciated the fact that the farm had so many activities for our tweens.  It was refreshing that all age groups had been considered when planning this farm experience and that many of the experiences really got our blood flowing!  My boys (11 and 12 years old) could have spent the next two weeks playing in Corny’s Ball-Cade (think soccer, baseball, basketball & footballs flying!)  We will be going back soon to ride the Strasburg Railroad Steam Locomotive that steamed through the farm while we were visiting.  It was so cool to see and hear the train power through the field!

Cherry Crest Adventure Farm has really thought of everything!  There was a wide variety of food concessions to choose from throughout the farm and prices were reasonable.  (Our family discovered the Apple Cider Donut Shop and it was love at first bite.)  There are wagon rentals, a roomy picnic area, shady spots to rest and regroup, and also plenty of restrooms.  They have a Pick-Your-Own Pumpkin area and they even rent out Gathering Barns for special events.
We would wholeheartedly recommend Cherry Crest Adventure Farm to anyone who is looking for a fun, educational, and active adventure this fall!
