The Siemers Farm Tour is an Experiential Tour with a guide at every activity and is planned around a mini-curriculum designed so children and adults alike will become aware of the 5 Learning Goals.

The tour begins as you pick-up a numbered farm map, enter the Kingdom of Id, and walk along paths bordered by tall corn stalks and lush green shrubs on you way to the four-story Magical Castle. On the third floor of the castle you can take in a fabulous view of Green Bluff and mountain ranges. While gazing over the farm, use a treasure map to locate the Pirate's Treasure Chest, ("X" marks the spot), take your share of the loot, and don't forget to board the Pirate Ship as you leave the Maze. While on tour take a Train Ride, Pedal Car Ride and Slide Ride (weather permitting), then choose a Pumpkin, play the Feed the Pigs beanbag game, and watch an informative Pollination Video.

(#2) Simply grabbing some pumpkins & other fun things available.


(#3) All of the above!

*** Bring a sack lunch and remember to pray for sunshine!!!! ***
