Crumland Farms started off as a small dairy farm operated by a newlywed couple in 1940, and has become a one-stop shop for agricultural fun. The farm does more than sell produce — they educate children and adults about agriculture. But they make it so much fun. They offer birthday parties, corporate retreats, school trips and fall activities. You can make your way through the corn maze, play zombie paintball, ride giant tricycles and pick your own pumpkins from the pumpkin patch.
