Purchasing the farm in 1999 was the first step to begin Piney Acres Christmas Tree Farm and Pumpkin Patch in Fortville, Indiana.
After that–everything was just details.
Piney Acres Christmas Tree Farm and Pumpkin Patch in Fortville, Indiana
What was once fields of soybeans or corn now holds row after row of beautiful Christmas trees in the varieties you know and love! More than 50 acres of Christmas trees have been planted through the years.Explore fifty acres of Christmas trees at Piney Acres in Fortville! Click To Tweet
When you visit Piney Acres in the Autumn, you can get an up close and personal look at the trees while taking a hayride through the farm. You will sit on hay so dress accordingly.
Piney Acres is more than an Indiana Christmas Tree Farm, it’s a Pumpkin Patch and Halloween extravaganza! At least, it’s easy to think so once you take a peek at all the fun Halloween decor found inside–and out!
Fortville, Indiana Pumpkin Patch
Kick things off with a trip through an eight acre corn maze! This isn’t your typical corn maze, either. Designed by owner Rex Zenor, the maze doesn’t just take you through corn, but also includes a hunk of the woods in there, too.
If that’s too much for little ones, enjoy the smaller two-acre corn maze at this Hancock County attraction that’s just the right size.
Round things out with a hayride through the Christmas tree farm (and maybe even pick your Christmas tree out ahead of time, reserving it for the holiday season) or a stroll through the Haunted Loft, a new attraction at Piney Acres.
Made for slightly older kids (definitely over age 5), it’s a spooky trip through a mad scientist’s lair.
School Groups Welcome at Indiana Pumpkin Patch
Do you have a group of kids that could benefit from a Piney Acres farm tour field trip? Yes, they do that too.
Kids will enjoy a thirty minute hayride around the seventy-three acre farm. They will hear interesting farm stories and tidbits that are tweaked to fit the age of the listeners.
In fact, they have a selection of tours to choose among.
