It’s more than corn maze and pumpkin patch season. It’s the Niederman Family Farm harvest of fall fun!
Yeah, they have all the autumn fixings for fun, like a massive corn maze and pumpkin patch, but they’ve been in the family memory-making business for decades, and it shows. The 210 acres are like a fall amusement park filled with treats!
One of the hottest treats is the Niederman family’s fresh, hot, homemade cinnamon sugar donuts. But first, fill those tummies with all kinds of yummies at the Niederman picnic pavilion, which provides great sandwiches, drinks, and all your fall staples. Sip hot cider and enjoy fresh kettle corn, funnel cakes, caramel apples, apple butter, pumpkin butter, hot roasted nuts, and more.
Other Niederman signature offerings feature jams, jellies, honey, and a variety of coffees in the marketplace barn. On the weekends, many of these foods are also available at food tents and stands throughout the farm. Be sure to reserve a private bonfire area under the stars to pass around the marshmallows and S’mores.
Let the kids get tangled in fun racing around the Low Ropes Course to challenge. Navigate carefully along small floppy blue disc platforms suspended on hanging ropes. Dive into the side-by-side rope tunnels and try to crawl without falling through. Now, try walking a tightrope with no sides to help keep balance. Maneuver a rope net wall. These are just some obstacles to navigate along the way through laughter and a little competition.
The Niedermans have added all kinds of creative touches throughout the years. Bounce your way to side-splitting laughter under a barn on stilts sheltering a giant bouncy pillow. There’s also a spacious observation deck measuring 24 by 70 feet. Old-fashioned water pumps send racing rubber ducks back and forth. Families square off for tug-o-war contests. Race someone on adult-sized tricycles or bouncy balls. At every turn, there are activities and excitement for all ages.
Everyone enjoys the farm animal viewing areas featuring goats, turkeys, chickens, rabbits, and other livestock. This farm has it all: human foosball, climbing web, lil’ sprout route, climbing hill, ball zones, tetherball, pipe swings, and kids’ tractor play area and tiny houses. And sanitizing stations are plentiful.
No doubt daytime is only half the fun. Stick around because when the sun goes down, even more fall fun rises under the moonlight. Grab your flashlight and navigate the corn maze. Take a leisurely, starlit hayride. Gaze at the night sky and breathe the crisp autumn air. Again, reserve your bonfire pit and enjoy good old-fashioned storytelling with a weenie roast.
Niederman Family Farm is fall done right.
Of course, the corn maze and pumpkin patch are featured activities day and night, but plenty of other activities are also found throughout the farm, providing hours of bonding time between family and friends.
