Admission and General Info
Where can I get tickets?
You can buy tickets online (https://buytickets.at/richdalefarm) or you can buy tickets in person when you come to the farm.
What does general admission include?
The admission price includes hayrides, corn maze, apple cannon, barrel train, and other activities. Pumpkins and fall decorations are sold separately.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept all forms of payment-cash, cards, and checks, but of course prefer cash to help keep fees low.
Do I have to pay admission just to buy a pumpkin or eat at the food truck?
No, you are welcome to shop for pumpkins, mums, fodder shocks, and all of our fall decorations without admission. We do ask that you NOT participate in or visit the wrist band required activities and areas (corn pit, field activities, corn maze, etc.…).
Do I have to pay just to pick pumpkins?
No, you do not have to pay to pick pumpkins or fall decorations. The admission price is for the field activities including the Corn Pit, Jump Pad, Hayride, Corn Maze, and more.
Can I leave and come back?
Yes, you may leave and come back on the same calendar day. Do not remove your wristband, as that is your ticket back in to Fall on the Farm.
Is a pumpkin included?
Pumpkins are not included in general admission. Our pumpkins and fall decorations range in price from $1 up. Everything is marked in our pumpkin patch.
Field trip admission DOES INCLUDE a small pie pumpkin.
Do you charge for parking?
No, we do not charge for parking but we do recommend that you carpool when possible.
Do you offer admission discounts for groups or senior citizens?
We strive to be as affordable as possible for groups of all sizes and ages, so we do not offer a group discount. We do not charge for children 2 years old and younger during the public weekend hours.
Are all the activities open during the Flashlight Maze?
Most of the field activities are open during the Flashlight Maze hours. However, we do not run Hayrides, Barrel Train, or the Apple Cannon after 6:00 pm on those days.
If I come during the day, can I stay for the Flashlight Maze?
Yes. Our admission price is for the full day. So you can come during the morning or afternoon and stay through the late evening.
Can we bring our own food?
We welcome outside birthday cakes and food. We also have a concession stand open on the weekends and food trucks on Saturdays.
Do you sit on a chair, hay bale, or floor on the hayride?
Our large wagons are loaded with hay bales for you to sit on during the ride. For safety reasons, we require that you remain seated throughout the trip.
Can I bring my pets?
We know you love your dogs and other animals and you want to bring them to the Pumpkin Patch BUT we DO NOT allow dogs on the farm!
1) Our 2 dogs are working farm dogs. That means they instinctively protect our property and the livestock. It’s confusing to them when random dogs come on to the property. They think they need to protect but we tell them to back off. Currently our dogs are working every night to keep the coyotes away from the sheep, so we absolutely need them on point right now!
2) We are a working farm with a lot of livestock. That livestock doesn’t understand your dog is just a nice pet. They will get skiddish and stressed out with your dog around. Livestock is not cheap and if your dog attacked one of them, it would be a huge financial impact on you!
Thank you for understanding and respecting our request!
