I got the chance to take my family out to Yesterland Farm over the weekend. US Family Guide provided 4 free tickets. Yesterland Farm is open September through November, and is currently running is Fall Festival. There rides for kids, a corn maze, corn & pumpkin cannons, pig races & more. We had never been before, and were excited for the chance to go.
The weather wasn’t exactly the best due to a massive line of storms…which had already forced the Rangers game to move up to a 11 am game instead of the evening (GO RQANGERS!). It had already been raining some when we headed out towards Canton, but it cleared up as we got to the farm. Aside from being very humid, it was very nice out. After going through the entrance, we slowly wandered around taking everything in. My daughter immediately started going over to random pumpkins, picking them up while we looked at the food hut & a few of the rides that were right there. We them made around way over to the pig races.
The pig races were a lot of fun, especially for my daughter who ended up in the middle of it. When the announcer guy asked if anyone wanted to get in the tub of water for the last race, she ran up to the fence with her arms waving. He asked if it was okay for her to help him out. She got to introduce herself to everyone, then got carried around by the announcer when the pigs ran around the trace. Once they got near the end, he put her down and she got to run the pigs into their pen. She took a huge bow at the end when he lifted her back over the fence. She had a blast.
Other stuff we checked out was the petting zoo & the corn cannon. The corn cannon was a lot of fun. We got seven shots and all took turns with it. We didn’t get to do the corn maze because the weather turned and it was getting ready to rain. We did pick out a pumpkin. They run $0.50 per pound, so were spent $4 for an 8 lb. Pumpkin. I also got a mug of birch beer (old time soda made form birch bark) from the Old-Fashioned Chuck Wagon soda stand. Great stuff.
Overall, we had a wonderful time. The photos on the website just doesn’t too it justice. I just wish we had been able to stay longer so that we could have done everything. General admission is $11.95, seniors are $9.95, and kids 2 & under get in free. Ride tickets cost $1 each, and you can get an unlimited ride pass for $15. The corn cannon is also extra. Right now, they are only open on the weekends. You can check out everything they have at their website.
I received free tickets via US Family Guide to help facilitate my review.
