Sunflowers & Bonfires

Niederman Family Farm has end-of-summer and early fall entertainment planned day and night for families in Southwest Ohio.

Both are hot tickets, so book your fun in the sun or under the stars well in advance at

The sunflower field will soon burst with color with various sunflower types. It is expected to be in peak color by the end of September. Updates about this year’s bloom will be posted to Facebook. The photo ops and props will be plentiful. And, you don’t have to walk away with just photos and memories. You can take a bouquet of sunflowers home, too. Admission includes a wagon ride to the sunflower patch.

Afterward, 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.

As summer cools to fall, Niederman Family Farm settles into its most festive time of year.

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. 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 the weekends, many of these foods will also be available at food tents and stand spaced throughout the farm.

So, fill your late summer through fall with good times on Niederman Family Farm. Start with the sunflowers and bonfires, and then make way for corn mazes and pumpkin patches. Reservations are available at
