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?

Yes, in 2020. In order to control the number of visitors to the farm at any given time, we are requiring reservations for entry times and advance purchase of tickets. We are selling out and thus not allowing any walk-ins on Saturdays and Sundays in October — so please plan ahead and purchase your tickets as soon as you can (ticket time/dates can be changed by contacting us.)

What forms of payment does Treinen Farm accept?

Online ticket purchases require a credit card. At the farm, we are primarily cashless for quicker, contactless checkouts with cards and mobile devices. There will be farm locations that do accept cash if necessary.

Sorry, personal checks are not accepted, although we can take business and school checks.

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?


Covid Safety

What is your mask policy?

Masks are REQUIRED in:

  • Entry tunnel
  • Ticketing/entry/exit area
  • Any buildings that we open, including the picnic pavilion
  • When interacting with our staff
  • Anywhere on the farm where it is not possible to EASILY maintain a minimum 6 foot distance from other guests or staff
  • Masks are recommended but not required for ages 5 and under
  • On weekends, we may require masks in the corn maze, playgrounds, and any additional areas we deem necessary.
What are your other covid safety policies?

See our covid safety policies HERE.

Food & drink

Can I bring a picnic?

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

Do you sell food?

We have snacks, bottled drinks, cider donuts, and premade sandwiches. Due to covid-19, the food vendors (brat stand, food trailer, and kettle corn)  are not at the farm this fall.

Can I bring in alcohol?

No, and we do not sell alcoholic beverages. 

Can we have alcohol at our private event?

Private groups should contact us in advance for alcohol policies.


Where can I get a pumpkin?

The Farm Fables Pumpkin Patch is an easy 2 minute walk just past the Molehill Mountain playground area.

The Upper Pumpkin Patch is about a 4 minute walk along the pond.

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

You can find pre-picked pumpkins for sale in the farmyard as well. We have 18 total acres of pumpkin patch.


How much do pumpkins cost?

Pumpkins are $3 to $10, with the average carving size being $7.  Even the really large pumpkins are only $10. Baby pumpkins (Jack B Littles and Baby Boos) and gourds are $1. Save by purchasing a pumpkin voucher at the time of ticket purchase.

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.  We cannot take strollers on the hayrides, however.


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. The ramp to the tunnel is gravel and is sloped.


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?


How many people can fit around a fire or in each bonfire area?

At this time, we are limiting groups to 12 people (or your household) for covid safety. Please contact us to discuss arrangements or if you have questions or extenuating circumstances. 

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.

Can we carve pumpkins at our bonfire area?

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

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

No, but please let us know as soon as possible if you need to cancel so we can open the site up.

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. See Plan Your Visit for admission options.
