Here's a cool, off the beaten path, place to take your family on a cool fallish day when the cool Iowa weather comes and leaves are beginning to change. Traditional rural Iowa setting with drama-free activities for folks of any age. Staff was pleasant, setting was well kept. Bring some cash as you'll want a pumpkin to bring home.

Waaaay too expensive. 5-6 years ago this place was cool. Now it's been turned into a money making machine. Good for them. But it's pretty expensive. Family of 4 will spend $200 easily

Went here in the fall for some cider. So yummy! Can’t wait to go back for the summer activities.

My husband and I took our infant daughter here with some friends who recommended it, but we had no idea what we were actually going into. This place is huge! We thought we were going into a regular old pumpkin patch to pick our own pumpkin, maybe try some apple cider, and head home. What we found instead was an entire theme park spread over acres of farmland with tons of family-friendly activities. While there was plenty to do with our little one and our friends, the stroller was hard to get around (understandably, we just didn't know what we were in for) and we thought in a year or two our baby girl will enjoy a lot more of the activities. Make sure to bring extra cash for the General Store on the way out. Had we known all of the great homemade and farm fresh goods available would be there, we would have planned to bring more money. It all looked excellent and we wanted to take home a little bit of everything!

This was a great orchard with lots of things to do. There were a lot of people there so we had to park farther away. A bit pricey but so are all apple orchards and pumpkin patches. I really enjoyed getting to pick my own apples. My group only had a few hours there so we weren't able to do everything that I wanted. Otherwise, it was a really great place and we had a great time!
