Frequently Asked Questions

And some questions you didn’t think to ask

If your question is “what is happening in this photo?”, the answer is “our horse, Jessie, dressed as a unicorn, is being pulled in a Lodi parade by a team of humans.”


Do I need a reservation?

In 2021, online ticketing and reservations are strongly encouraged. We will sell out on our busiest days, so purchase tickets ahead of time to be assured entry. Tickets are not guaranteed to be available at the gate.

What forms of payment does Treinen Farm accept?

Online ticket purchases require a credit card. At the farm , we accept all credit cards and cash. Sorry, personal checks are not accepted, although we can take business and school checks.

Do you offer group rates?

If you have a group of twenty or more and are paying with a single transaction, you can received $1.00 off per person. For groups larger than 100, or for vouchers to give out to employees, please contact us.

Can I bring my dog?

Sorry, no non-human animals (except for service animals) may accompany you on your visit. It’s a liability thing; trust us, we do actually love dogs just as much as we love people (okay, maybe a little more…)

Is smoking allowed?

Sorry — corn, hay, and fire do not play well together. The Treinen Farm is a non-smoking, non-vaping, fresh country air kind of place.

Are weapons allowed?


Do I need to pay admission to just get a pumpkin?

Yes, all visitors to the farm need to pay admission. Our farm has many hours of entertainment for all ages, and that is what the admission covers. Going to the pumpkin patch is part of the fun! So plan ahead and make sure you have enough time to enjoy all the farm has to offer.

Food & drink

Can I bring a picnic?

Yes, you may bring in food.   We have lots of picnic tables.

Do you sell food?

Our food offerings in 2021 continue to be dramatically affected by ongoing pandemic and supply-chain problems. Although we do have  bottled drinks and snacks, we do not have the boy scouts brat stand or food truck at this point. Cider donuts and caramel apples have not been available as of this writing (9/28/21.) We’re sorry to be such a disappoint on the food front this year! We encourage you to bring a picnic.


Will hayrides be offered in 2021?

Due to a combination of covid safety and various horse and driver retirements, we are not able to offer hayrides in 2021.


Where can I get a pumpkin?

 We have three pumpkin patches!

The Farm Fables Pumpkin Patch is an easy walk past the Molehill Mountain area.

The Upper Main Pumpkin Patch is a 5 minute walk along our scenic pond.

The Main Pumpkin Patch (on the far side of the pond) is about a 6 minute walk.

You can find pre-picked pumpkins of all shapes, sizes, and colors for sale in the farmyard as well.


How much do pumpkins cost?

Pumpkins are priced by size and are $3 – $15. Prepaid pumpkin vouchers (purchase with your tickets online) cost $8 and are good for ANY pumpkin. 

Can we carve pumpkins at our picnic table?

Yes, but let us know in advance so we can protect picnic tables with newspaper and make sure you have a trash barrel handy.


Where can I take our stroller?

All-terrain strollers work well at the farm, including in the maze. 


Is Treinen Farm wheelchair-friendly?

It depends on the wheelchair. Most surfaces at the farm are flat, and are either gravel, grass, or mulch. The maze is hard-packed dirt, which can get slippery when wet. 


Do I need a reservation?

Yes, reservations are required for bonfires.  Reserve a bonfire area here.

Can I bring food to roast over the fire?

Yes, please do!

Can we bring coolers/chairs/misc household items?


Can we pick where our bonfire will be?

If you’ve been here before and have a strong preference, you can let us know on the booking form and we’ll see what we can do.

Do we need to pay for the bonfire reservation in advance?

Yes. Your reservation can be transferred or changed to another date/time if necessary.

Does everyone need to pay admission or can some people in the group just come in to sit by the fire?

Everyone must pay admission.
