My kids remember coming to Sonny Acres Farm in the '80;s, so we decided to come here instead of going to Goebbert's this year. What I didn't realize is, is that Sonny Acres Farm was established in 1883. Imagine, 136 years! As the weather worked...More

I was disappointed to see a huge TRUMP sign displayed at the farm. This country is divided enough. Leave the sign out of the pumpkin patch. Spoiled the day for us

Great place to get out and experience fall for all ages. I have been going there with my daughter since she was a baby. We've had birthday parties there, and just hung out on beautiful fall days. It has become a tradition for our family.

People obviously come here during the fall season and enjoy the haunted trails and haunted houses, but this place offers more all year long! From holiday decorations to baked goods, stop in anytime and see what new things they are cooking up!!
