Benton Family Farm. Officially a 501c3 non profit org. Donations of any kind are appreciated and tax deductible. We are open to school field trips in the spring and fall and offer facilities for rentals for weddings, birthday parties, reunions and other gatherings. Head on out to a real working farm for five generations now. Private tours from 2 to 500 available just email to schedule.
We grow 14 acres of pumpkins for our u-pick operation. We take people to the fields and they carry out what pumpkins they want to purchase.We also have plenty of barnyard animals to see and pet. We have goats, sheep, dairy cattle, rabbits, ducks, pigs, horses and guinea fowl. At our farm you won't find commercialism! Since we've opened, we have striven to keep our working family farm image as we are. We have plenty of farm family fun on Sat and Sun in October. Admission to farm is charged.$7.00 three yrs and under free as of 10/2014. Pumpkins are charged just by size not the pound! $2-$9.
Spring school field trips start the last week of April and in May. On a spring tour we tour the farm and visit with all the barnyard animals, gather the eggs, take a hayride and we will be learning about shearing the sheep. Cow milking depends on if cow is fresh. And planting seeds. Children will have the chance to actually shear a sheep. We also have a short lesson on how to be a honey bee keeper and see all the equipment used by our beekeeper! We also offer a special lesson on vet care and How to be a Vet! Summer day camp is a huge success if your child loves the outdoors and animals, we offer an exceptional opportunity!
Like us at Benton Family farm FACE BOOK PAGE, there are group and special offers! Donations are excepted to help the farm. A letter can be provided on your donation for tax purposes for either monetary or equipment/supplies. We are having a fundraiser in the fall which is The Haunted Farm House to help continue funds for the farm.
