A recently discovered alternative to the indoors, going "outside" offers adventurous explorers exposure to things such as wind, sunshine, and the naturally occurring mazes found in corn fields. Leave the indoors with today's Groupon: for $20, you get unlimited pony, hay, and train rides for six individuals (up to a $30 value) and a $10 produce voucher at Hee Haw Farms Farmers Market in Pleasant Grove (up to a $40 total value). You may use your produce voucher at a different time than your ride passes until Monday, September 16. The Farmer's Market is open on Friday's from July 8 to September 16, and admission for children ages 2 and younger is free.
Hee Haw Farms celebrates all things husbandry, producing acres of veggies and bushels of fun activities and barnyard rides. Families, groups of friends, or superhero cadres hop aboard any of Hee Haw Farms’ agricultural excursions. Noble ponies serenely transport youngsters (ages 1–12) in fun-filled circuits, and hay conveniently bales itself into bench format for the wagon ride. After a trip on the animal train, helmed by trained piglet conductors, caper about in the petting zoo, where you can play with adorable baby barnyard critters. Agronomists hawk their wares at the Hee Haw farmers’ market, where produce enthusiasts and people who eat can peruse a cornucopia of fresh vegetables. After September 23, navigate the labyrinthine corn maze, or take home a gorged gourd during the farm’s pumpkin-patch season to serve as a Halloween jack-o’-lantern or an emergency mannequin-head replacement.
The market is held on Fridays from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. and runs from Friday, July 8 through Friday, September 16.
Hee Haw Farms
Upon entering Hee Haw Farms, kids and adults surrender to their senses as feet crunch through fallen leaves, cheeks are warmed by the sun, and nostrils fill with the aromas of warm grass and fresh produce. A plethora of outdoor activities entertains families during the warm months, including pony rides, baby-animal petting zoos, and pig races. Other attractions shift with the seasons, such as a corn maze and haunted hayrides in the fall, sunflower planting in the spring, bushels of fresh veggies for sale in the summer, and bushels of fresh snow in the winter.
