Preparing for your visit:

• Please check the weather before coming to the farm. We post closures on our Hillside Acres Facebook page and Instagram. If we must close, we will give you a free pass to return at another time of your choice during the season. Admission passes are offered to customers who have been at the farm less than 1.5 hrs. We do not offer refunds.

• Wear comfortable shoes/rain boots that you don’t mind getting muddy if it has rained before your visit.

• Bring a stroller or wagon for small children.

• We love our furry friends, but no pets allowed on the farm. Service dogs are allowed. 

• Consider reserving a fire pit with a picnic table in Timber Town. They are just $25 for 3 hours and we supply the wood. 

• Lock up and secure your valuables before entering the farm. If you do loose items, check the lost and found at the admission booth. 

• Bring bug spray – just in case the mosquitos are out in Timber Town. We have had a few bee stings, please come prepared if you are allergic to them.
