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.

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?

Will hayrides be offered in 2021?

Due to multiple horse and driver retirements, we sadly no longer be able to offer  hayrides.


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 900 foot walk along our scenic pond.

The Main Pumpkin Patch (on the far side of the pond) is about ¼ mile 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 $4 – $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.
