Autumn on the Farm

Get Roped Into Fall
at Niederman Family Farm

Southwest Ohio’s autumn fun spot is Niederman Family Farm. It’s got all the traditional fall fixin’s but this season, it unveiled a mega ropes course.

Kids get tangled in fun racing around the new Low Ropes Course to challenge themselves mentally and physically, but most of all, to have a good time! 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. A rope bridge with mesh sides will text balancing skills. Now try walking a tight rope with no sides to help keep balance. Rings on the ropes above will test that jungle gym strength. Clutch a climbing wall to get from one side to another. Maneuver a rope net wall. These are just some obstacles to navigate along the way through laughter and competition.

Every year dating back decades, the Niederman family adds something special to its fall lineup of entertainment. Book your fun in the sun or under the stars well in advance at

Of course, the corn maze, pumpkin patch, and horse and wagon rides are featured day and night. Plenty of other activities are across the farm, too. Old-fashioned water pumps send racing rubber ducks back and forth. Families square off for tug-o-war contests. Kids enjoy 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, kids’ tractor play area, and tiny houses. You can even race someone on adult-sized tricycles or bouncy balls.

A day on the farm means time to eat. And the Niedermans have all the fav fall fixins’. Sip hot cider and enjoy fresh kettle corn, funnel cakes, caramel apples, apple butter, pumpkin butter, hot roasted nuts, and other fall treats. These and Niederman’s signature cinnamon sugar donuts, jams, jellies, honey, and a variety of coffees are available in the marketplace barn. They also work with a nearby orchard to bring pumpkins, apples, apple cider, and salsa. On weekends, many of these foods are also available at food tents and stands scattered across the farm.

Grab some shade in the pavilion for a picnic lunch before exploring the other attractions across the farm. These include a giant jumping pillow, ball zones, play cabins, and other activities to fill an afternoon.

Don’t forget to peek at the farm animals.

The privately reserved bonfire pits are set ablaze as the day goes to night. Groups can gather to roast hot dogs or make S’mores. People can cozy up under the moonlight for a good ghost story, take a starlit wagon ride, or navigate the corn maze with flashlights. There’s nothing like a crisp night on a farm.

So, fill your fall days and nights with good times on Niederman Family Farm. Reservations are available at
