Here are some helpful tips:

1. Dress appropriately! You definitely want old sneakers or boots and comfortable play clothes. Layer for the chill in the evening. This is a working farm and there is a lot for the kids to dive into (literally). The pumpkin field was a seek-and-find due to tall weeds this year. While this made the choice of pumpkins easier and the kids had a great time trying to find the pumpkins, you’ll regret it if you wear shorts.

2. Don’t buy pumpkins anywhere else! We went pumpkin-picking and got six various sized pumpkins for a TOTAL of $10! Prepare to carry a HUGE pumpkin to the wagon. Their pumpkins and flower costs are well below other pumpkin farms in the area, so you can go as big as you want in pumpkin size. Their top price was $12 per pumpkin. Also, you can have all the fun of picking your pumpkin out of the field, but then come back and switch it for one of their better looking pumpkins by the register. (prices may have changed)

3. Plan to stay a while with the whole family! Between the mazes, hay rides, slides, swings, corn pit, jump pillow and SO MUCH MORE there is plenty to  keep everyone busy for quite a while.

4. Bring a picnic. While they do have reasonably priced food, snacks and drinks at Thomas Dairy Farm, you can bring your own cooler and save some money. They want you to feel at home. There are plenty of tables and open areas to sit and eat. Pack s’more ingredients for the campfire that they start up at sunset.

5. Prepare to get lost in the 8 acre corn maze near Louisville…some have even resorted to cheating to get out! It’s challenging so if you love corn mazes, this is one to visit. There’s also a little corn maze for kids and the corn is shorter so you can see them. They have even added a sunflower maze. This year, they are designed after Alice in Wonderland for 2022! They games they have for the corn maze make it really unique and fun.

6. Bring warm clothes (jackets, etc.) and prepare to stay late and get scared…or not. They have a couple fire pits to sit around when it gets dark. The Zombie Paintball Hayride is not scary, but super fun to ride in the dark of night with the music blaring. But The Woods is not for children or faint of heart. Enter at your own risk!

7. Your kids WILL be happily gross when they get home with corn coming out of every pocket and hay stuck to everything. From the giant corn kernel tub, to the giant inflatable pillow, to the never ending corn maze, to the climbable hay stacks, your kids will come home dirty, dusty, and sweaty. Nice and tired, too.

8. PLAY with your kids. Our kids laughed so hard and cheered for us when we went down the slide. Kids love to see parents play too so don’t just watch. We all had such a wonderful day outside together, doing all of the activities, disconnected from our screens and simply enjoying every bit of the farm activities.

9. Prepare for port-o-potties. This is a working family farm so unless they are letting you into their home for a restroom break, port-o-potties are the only option. They do have a hand sanitizer station. Bring items with you to clean up! We always pack some baggies with soapy water and rags and leave them in the car in case we need them. 

10. They take credit cards. This place is so awesomely authentic but they are up to speed on mobile pay. So, you don’t have to worry about carrying around a bunch of cash if you don’t want to! For 2020, there will be opportunities to pay online before you go.
