Every year our first stop for fall fun is Harvest Farm Fall Festival & Corn Maze! This real working farm is a favorite for my family and holds a special place in my heart as it supports recovery from addiction and homelessness.
This farm is located in Wellington, CO just north of Fort Collins and features activities that will thrill all ages! Attractions include 10 acre Corn Maze Hay Bale Pyramid, Pig Races, Petting Zoo, Goat City, Roping Area, Wagon Ride, Corn Cannons, Toddler Area, Pumpkins, Concessions-Kettle Corn, and so much more!
This is our second year visiting Harvest Farm and it is still one of our favorites! Our 45 minute drive is absolutely worth the amazing experience my kids always have! For a little more history on this farm, as well as information on how it’s operation benefits recovery from addiction, click HERE.
With admission, guests have access to a wide variety of activities! You can view all activities HERE, however I will go over our family favorites below!
Our first stop at Harvest Farm is ALWAYS the pig races. The announcers have a blast and my kids love getting to bet on which goofy named piggy will take the bacon…so to speak.
YARD GAMES & CORN BOX COVERED WAGONS
Harvest Farms offers a wide variety of yard games to keep my kids entertained! Who would have though fake cows were so fun to ride or that corn was so fun to play in?!
Who doesn’t love a good corn maze!? We have never managed to make it through all three courses, but we always love getting lost!
My husband and kids could spend all day shooting corn out of these awesome contraptions!
My favorite spot to hang out is the petting zoo! I couls have stayed with this goofy calf all day!
NATURAL PLAY AREA
Out of all the things we love to do at Harvest Farm, we could spend the most time at the natural play area. This is always our last stop and we are here for at least an hour before we have to drag the kids to the car!
Proceeds from the festival directly support the New Life Program at Harvest Farm. An outreach of Denver Rescue Mission, Harvest Farm is a 100-acre rehabilitation program in Wellington, CO. The Farm accommodates up to 72 men recovering from chronic homelessness and addiction and helps return them to society as productive, self-sufficient citizens.
***Please note they are open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in October and offer special events every Saturday!!
