The Kelsay Farms Farm Experience and pumpkin patch is open for the 2023 fall season from September 29 – October 29. Everyone is invited to come to experience the farm and learn while having a lot of fun at the same time!
This farm in Whiteland, IN has been owned and managed by the same family for 6 generations. Over 15 years ago, the property began opening its gates to visitors each fall, inviting everyone to celebrate the harvest season with some old-fashioned agricultural fun. Mark your calendars now for a day full of pumpkins, animals, sweet treats, getting lost in the corn maze, and more!
Things to do at Kelsay Farms Pumpkin Patch
No matter your kids’ ages and interests, they’ll find something exciting to do at Kelsay Farms this fall. The farm claims to “specialize in wearing kiddos out,” so consider a visit as your winning parenting strategy for the smoothest bedtime ever.
Animals, Rides, Sensory Play, and More
The Old MacDonald Petting Zoo is back again inside the former dairy barn. Kids will love seeing the animals and might even be greeted by the resident pets. Who exactly can you meet? You’ll find cows, rabbits, goats, sheep, pigs, a miniature horse, and even some bee hives.
The petting zoo is just one of many stops for fall fun on the farm! Ride the Moo Choo Train, an adorable tractor-pulled ride with kid-sized cabins painted in cow spots. You can also take a hayride, bounce away on the giant bounce pillow, climb Straw Bale Mountain, traverse the 7-acre corn maze, or play some corn hole.
Stop by the concession stand for a yummy grilled cheese sandwich or to slurp down a milkshake, which now comes in vanilla AND chocolate. Of course, the trip isn’t complete until you let the littles slide right into that corn crib. During select times, you can even enjoy live music and get your face painted.
At night, you can check out the 7-acre corn maze by flashlight. If your kids (or you) are easily frightened, you’ll be glad to know the maze is NOT haunted! Just bring your own flashlight.
Everything is Included in Admission
There are so many fun activities at Kelsay Farms, and they’re all included in your admission fee. The only exceptions are the pumpkins you pick from the patch and any food you choose to purchase.
My little ones spend hours in the play area filled with corn kernels and my school-aged kids spend hours on top of the hay bale mountain!
