Family Fun At Cherry Crest Adventure Farm

Cherry Crest Adventure Farm entrance

During our trip to Lancaster County a few weeks ago, we visited Cherry Crest Adventure Farm. I think this was the highlight of our trip. There was so much to do there and we had so much fun as a family.

Z.E.N. loved seeing  and feeding all the farm animals.

The 15 acre farm has opened its fall season on September 21st and will be featuring over 50 fun activities and rides through November 3rd.

The Amazing Maize Corn Maze will likely be the highlight of your visit. I so wanted to do the corn maze, but hubby was afraid I’d get lost and not come back. LOL!

Flashlight mazes are scheduled for every Friday and Saturday night through November 3rd from 6:30pm to 10:00pm. Even better, the maze admission also includes admission to the wagon ride and bonfire. Additional campfire and food options can be added for a fee.
