Most farms house livestock, cornfields, and vegetable patches. But the crown jewel of Skydive the Farm’s 55 acres of property is something a little less typical: a Grand Caravan turbine-engine plane. Its Blackhawk engine modifications allow it to jet briskly to proper skydiving altitude, at which visitors leap out its doors and parachute to the farm’s spacious landing area. Adventurers can dive tandem-style, strapped to a certified instructor, or opt for more independent freefalls. Available only after several hours of training, these flights earn divers AFF licensing, requiring them to open their own parachute and land with radio assistance. Family and friends can watch their loved ones master the skies from a spacious viewing deck instead of having to find a sturdy enough cloud to climb upon. Divers can also watch themselves afterward via the center’s professionally-made flight DVDs, complete with video footage and photos.
At Iron Horse Farms, head trainer Christine Johnston and her staff of sheepdogs and equestrians immerse horse lovers in everything from intensive show training to introductory lessons. Riders can feel the wind in their manes in the outdoor arena or move to the indoor pen on days when the Pegasus constellation trots over to eclipse the sun. Packed with soft rubber footing to ensure horses’ comfort, the training areas represent just part of the expansive facility, which also includes lounges, tack rooms, and large turnout pastures.
