Are all the hayrides horse-drawn?
The Treinen Farm’s draft horses are an iconic part of the experience, and we strive to make sure every visitor gets to enjoy the horses if they wish.
However, in the case of horse sickness, lameness, excessive heat, dangerously slippery conditions, or extremely busy days, we will put a tractor-drawn wagons into the rotation to make sure the horses are safe and not overworked, and that guests get to the pumpkin patch in a timely fashion.
You can always wait for the next horse-drawn ride if you wish, and definitely hop on a horse wagon on the way back if you ride the tractor wagon on the way out.

How long is the hayride?
The hayride takes about fifteen minutes each way. You load up in the barnyard and enjoy a ride on a tree-lined trail past the pond, to the pumpkin patch. Once you’ve explored the patch and picked the perfect pumpkin, hop back on the wagon to head back to the farm.
Pumpkin Patch Fun and Do-It-All Packages include the hayride as well as your choice of pumpkin.
How can my group visit on an evening you aren't open?
I'd like to schedule a visit for my scout troop / company picnic / girl's night out / etc. but it's like herding cats. What should I do?
We specialize in herding cats! Contact us for help in making arrangements — we have strategies for this kind of thing…
How do I get to the pumpkin patch?
- The Farm Fables Pumpkin Patch, with small to medium sized pumpkins, is an easy walk past the Molehill Mountain area. It is also possible to grab a wheelbarrow and walk to the Upper Main Pumpkin Patch if you’d like to peruse the selection of all sizes and shapes of pumpkins. These “walk-to” patches are included with all farm admissions.
- The Big Pumpkin Patch (on the far side of the pond) is only accessible by the hayride. Pumpkin Patch Fun and Do-It-All packages include the hayride to the Main Patch.
Additionally, we have a large selection of pre-picked pumpkins at the farmyard.
Can I bring our stroller?
All-terrain strollers work well at the farm, including in the maze. We cannot take strollers on the hayrides, however.
Is Treinen Farm wheelchair-accessible?
It depends on the wheelchair and on where you want to go.
- Farm – Most surfaces at the farm are flat, and are either gravel, grass, or mulch.
- Maze – The maze is hard-packed dirt, which can get slippery when wet.
- Hayride – We can get wheelchairs on the hay wagon rides, but this requires an advance reservation (and we can’t get wheelchairs off at the pumpkin patch.)
There’s so many choices for admission packages — how do I choose?
We want to make sure everyone has a great time at the Treinen Farm, so it’s kind of a Choose-Your-Own Adventure. Here’s some help:
Are you up for an hour or more of walking?
Are you looking for that perfect pumpkin?
