Claim your Christmas tree at our Fall Festival Bonus Weekend!

The fun doesn’t have to stop after Halloween!

We will be open Nov. 1-3 for a bonus weekend of our Fall Festival. This is also a chance to get an early start on the hunt for the perfect family Christmas tree. You can claim your tree in our fields with no money down and no obligation. We will also have the trails, mountain slides, swings and all of the other things you’ve come to enjoy on Snead’s Farm.

We will be open Nov. 1 through 3 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission on these days is $5 per person. We will have hayrides through the Christmas tree field, hot waffles and other goodies from Pälzer Mädel , and other delicious food including pretzels, caramel apples, apple turnovers and hot apple cider. Please, no outside food.

Pick-your-own pumpkins will be on sale during the bonus weekend for $5 apiece! We have a new field of sunflowers coming into bloom, and they will stay blooming as long as we have no frost. These make a great photo backdrop, and you can pick your own for $1 a stem.

From Nov. 4 through Nov. 28, the farm will be closed to everyone except professional photographers (see policy here). We will open Black Friday (Nov. 29) for Christmas Tree sales. After Black Friday, we will be open Saturdays and Sundays only through Dec. 22.

Fall Festival soft opening this weekend!

It’s going to be a beautiful weekend, and this is the last weekend before our Fall Festival opens! This is the time to get in to our farm and pumpkin and sunflower patch near Fredericksburg, VA, for $5 per person (children 2 and younger are free) and enjoy many of our farm attractions!

You are welcome to bring your own food or picnics to the farm this weekend only, since we will not have food vendors until Sept. 28. You can also enjoy all of our pumpkin, sunflower and play areas, including the mazes, creekside play, mountain slides, horse barn, hay barn, Modest Museum, sand piles and more. We have rabbits, goats (including babies!), horses, llamas and calves.

Our farm stand will close for the season on Sept. 27, so this is the last weekend to come buy raspberries, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, sweet corn, gala apples and eggs. At the stand (no admission required) we also have pie pumpkins available for $3 to $5 apiece.

When the full festival opens on Sept. 28, weekend admission will be $8 per person. In addition to current amenities, we will have hayrides every hour (included in admission) and a variety of food vendors. Get all the information on the festival here.

JUMBO pumpkins are ready to pick in our Tarzan Patch. These gourds weigh in at 200 pounds and up, so you’ll want to bring some friends to help you bring them home!

We are open for produce shopping and play ($5 admission) daily 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
