The Corn & Peach Festival takes place August 23–25 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tickets are valid for all activities except pony rides. Corn & Peach Festival attendees can take a hayride (three tickets per person) or soar down the giant slide (two tickets per person). After depleting their ticket supply, visitors can chow down on roasted ears of sweet corn and treats made from fresh peaches, such as milkshakes, cobbler, and pie. See a full list of activities here. Some activities are weather permitting.
It was 1869 when the Lee family planted its first seed in the soil of Tualatin, Oregon. Today, three generations of the family still keep Lee Farms' lights on and its scarecrows vaccinated. They stock the country store with local produce, 18 flavors of honey sticks, and 17 varieties of jam. In the bakery, the staff hand makes pies each day, baking perennial favorites such as apple and seasonal flavors such as pumpkin.
To keep things fresh, Lee Farms rotates the selection of food and activities each season. In May a greenhouse surrounds visitors in flowers, and in October the farm transforms into a celebration of the harvest season, when guests can pick from 12 varieties of pumpkins. Lee's staff cuts down stalks to make a corn maze and drives visitors on scenic hayrides across the farm while they sample kettle corn and homemade cider.
