Kick off leaf dropping, pumpkin carving fun AND your near Indy pumpkin patch experience at Piney Acres Farm in Fortville. Piney Acres is less than 30 minutes from Indianapolis and has so much to offer for the whole family, teenagers too!
Things to do at Piney Acres Farm Pumpkin Patch
In the fall, there are so many things to do: a kid zone packed with play areas, a giant bouncy pillow, gem mining, pedal cars, corn mazes and a barrel train. On Friday and Saturday evenings from dusk until close, Piney Acres offers scary attractions including a haunted house and haunted corn maze.
We had an awesome visit to Piney Acres Farm this weekend. My kids are already asking to go back! We were there 2 hours but could have easily spent over half the day. There are SO many things to do:
Inflatables – There is a slide for kiddos that like to climb, and a huge Jump Pad for freestyle bouncing.
Pedal Carts – A winding track with 3 carts. Perfect for older elementary and middle school ages.
Tumbleweed Tumbler – 3-4 kiddos at a time can roll inside this big tube down a track.
Live Animals – Chickens, goats and a pig – Oh My! This is a great farm experience for the littles, and there is feed available.
Hayride – Take a hayride around the grounds. An activity the entire family can do. Tour the tree farm as it readies to open for the holidays.
Apple Cannon – New for this year. Great for ages 10 and up.
Mazes – a 7-acre corn maze, and 1-acre corn maze and a small rope maze for the younger kids.
Cow Train – Cars are made out of barrels and pulled by tractor. Super Cute!
Kitchen & Dining – Grab something hot, a caramel apple and a drink and sit and relax in the indoor dining area. There are also picnic tables outside for nice weather.
Don’t forget to pick out a pumpkin and check out the merchandise store on your way out.
Some tips: Piney Acres is kid/toddler/baby friendly but not necessarily stroller friendly unless you bring a stroller with large wheels. A wagon is recommended or baby wearing. The maze is not lighted after dark, so bring a flashlight if you are coming in the evening.
