Unlimited hayrides every day!
The Snead’s Farm 2021 Fall Festival runs from Sept. 25 through Oct. 31. Make plans to join us to explore the farm and pick our giant, heirloom pumpkins at some of the best prices around! We are open daily 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Admission is always free for children 2 years and younger. We accept cash, check and all major credit cards. Dogs on leash are welcome. As always, please do not come to the farm if you are sick or experiencing symptoms related to Covid-19.
**Please note that while the farm stays open until 6 p.m., we will stop admitting new guests at 5 p.m.**
We have not raised our pumpkin prices since last year. You can pick your own “very large” pumpkin from the large fields for $8. Our smaller pumpkins (fields are marked) are $4 apiece.

What can we do at the farm?
In addition to unlimited hayrides, admission includes access to all of our play areas, including four mountain slides, Whispering Pines play forest, sand pile, llamas, horses and other animals to see, creekside play, trails, hay barn and more. This year we have new hiking trails, and our sunflower fields will be in bloom (pick your own for $1 per stem).
Can I bring a school group?
School groups are allowed on weekdays only (with the exception of Military Day, Oct. 11). No reservation is needed. Payment of $9 per person (pumpkins not included) is to be made at the gate. We can direct you to bus parking if needed. Please call the farm to discuss whether your group would like pumpkins, or with any other questions.
We have a self-guided learning area with lessons on pollinators and the pumpkin lifecycle that teachers can guide students through.
Do you offer group rates?
Snead’s Farm does not offer special rates for groups, however we encourage groups to visit on weekdays, when admission is lower, crowds are smaller and you are able to bring your own food. We do not offer facility reservations, however, we have areas around the farm that can accommodate a group. While no appointment is needed, a call to the farm the day before is appreciated.
Do you offer a military discount?
Monday, Oct. 11, will be Military Day at the Snead’s Farm Fall Festival. On this day, we will have all of our vendors and weekend activities going on. General admission will be $12, but all current and retired members of the military and their families will get in for half-price admission. This has been a very fun tradition in years past and we look forward to seeing our military families again this year!
