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?

Online reservations are strongly suggested (and you save 20% by ordering tickets online.) Tickets are not guaranteed to be available at the gate, as we do sellout for popular times and dates.

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?

What is your mask policy?

Masks are REQUIRED in all indoor areas (retail areas, Haymow, Corn Pit, Little Farmer Area, Silo Area.)

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 may be limited  this fall.

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 $4 – $15. Save by purchasing a pumpkin voucher at the time of ticket purchase and get any pumpkin on the farm for $8.

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/etc.?

Yes, and we do have wagons for use bringing items from parking lot.

How many people can fit in each bonfire area?

If your group is over about twenty-five people, consider reserving more than one bonfire. We would locate your fires adjacent to each other.

Can we pick where our bonfire will be?

You can indicate your preference on the reservation form.

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?

You can pay online for your fire at the time you make the reservation. The bonfire fee is not refundable but the date and time can be changed at any time.

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.
