This past weekend my seven year old son and I headed out to Harvest Moon Acres for our annual visit for fall family fun. We were looking forward to our visit and had a great day to explore all of the activities at Harvest Moon Acres. My son loved the great activities, especially the family friendly corn maze. We made a fun afternoon of doing all of the activities at least twice!

Activities Galore

What you’ll find:

  • Pumpkin slingshots
  • 40 ft. long hay bale slide
  • Kid-sized zip-lines
  • Life-sized barnyard board game
  • Lil’ corn maze (shorter corn maze)
  • 5-acre corn maze
  • Hayride

What’s New This Year

Splashing its way onto the farm this fall is the new “Quakie’s Showdown” duck race attraction. Also new this fall, the popular pumpkin slingshot receives a western transformation. A must-see-to-believe western town presents shooters with themed targets. This was definitely one of my son’s favorite activities! I think he did this activity five times.

5-Acre Corn Maze

You’ll want to check out the Wild West themed 5-acre corn maze. Your family will want to allocate at least 45 minutes to do the entire corn maze. We loved that there were some activities to do while in the corn maze. When you enter Harvest Moon Acres they will give you a sheet that will have some of the activities to do that are incorporated into the corn maze. While we didn’t find all of the objects in the corn maze, we did find out way out the corn maze. Fun!

Harvest Moon Fun Run

Pumpkin Patch Palooza

There will be a few special events happening at Harvest Moon Acres this season. Join the fun at the Pumpkin Patch Palooza for a 1-mile fun run on October 3. Proceeds go to families of children with special needs. Fee is paid at entrance of the park and includes park entrance fee.


All Treats, No Tricks(1)

All Treats, No Tricks

The fall season will end with a bang at Harvest Moon Acres as they present their second Halloween trick or treating, maze-style on October 31. Wander through the ghoul-less, family friendly maze and find not only seven stations used to play the maze game, but also some very friendly Halloween treats. Nighttime hayrides are included with admission. This will be a perfect Halloween outing for families, older trick-or-treaters, and those looking to acquire a few more full-sized candies for their bags.

    We’ve never been to Harvest Moon Acres, this being our first autumn in Michigan, so we would love to go and enjoy all the fall activities! Our favorite will probably be the petting zoo and the hayride 🙂 Hope we win! 🙂

  2. Jason Bupp October 1, 2015 at 2:01 pm

    My family and I are somewhat new to the area and have never been to Harvest Moon Acres but would LOVE the opportunity. My five year old, Kennedy would surely get a kick out of it!

  11. Meg dean October 2, 2015 at 1:13 am

  14. Lisa Havenaar October 2, 2015 at 6:06 pm

    We’ve never been there before, but, it seems like an awesome place that all of the kids could enjoy. From high school all the way down to 3 years old. It looks like an amazing adventure.

  17. Jen Kenyon October 2, 2015 at 7:39 pm

    We have gone for the past 2 years. The corn maze is awesome and the kids love the hayride and pumpkin slung shot. Excited to see the new targets this year..looks fun!

  24. Tracie Harris October 4, 2015 at 12:33 pm

    We have been one time & we had so much fun. It’s hard to pick a favorite activity because we enjoyed them all. I think my youngest had the most fun on the zip line, while I enjoyed the corn maze & wagon ride as they are things we did as a family. Thanks for the opportunity to win free passes this year. I’ve been trying to budget in the funds to do it again this year & haven’t been successful.

  25. Rhonda Broadhurst October 4, 2015 at 2:36 pm

    I have not been here yet, but would love to bring my grandkids!

  26. Julie Runkel October 4, 2015 at 3:20 pm

    Very excited to visit with my 3 children ages 3,9 and 10.

  30. Rachel Hammock October 4, 2015 at 4:31 pm

    We went last year with family. My niece and son loved the hayride but best of all picking out their pumpkins. I think the adults enjoyed the pumpkin slingshots more than the kids! 😉

  31. Karen TenHagen October 4, 2015 at 4:53 pm

    We’ve never been there, but looking forward to heading there this year’

  32. Angie B October 4, 2015 at 5:03 pm

    Would love to go,never been there

  34. Katherine Garrison October 5, 2015 at 5:44 am

    Harvest Moon Acres keeps getting better with age!!! I’ve taken my family there twice. Once was their first year open and then last year. It was awesome how they’ve added new activities since our first time there. I’m hoping to be able to take my family this year and we are excited to see what the Quakies Showdown is all about, but unfortunately I lost my job back in March. My family loved the wagon ride around the farm and couldn’t get enough of it! Shooting guards and mini pumpkins thru a slingshot was also a close runner up to our favorite thing to do! We love the fact that it’s so close to home since most places even relatively close like this with fall activities for the kids and for families are in the bigger surrounding areas. I highly recommend that people with kids try this place out at least once and you’ll love it as much as we did!

  35. Amie melnts October 5, 2015 at 5:50 am

    We have never been here before but we love checking out new places and having adventures as a family! Looks like a great place!

  36. Amanda Reed October 5, 2015 at 2:04 pm

  37. Alisha crumb October 5, 2015 at 4:53 pm

    My kids are 8,7,6,and 2 my kids love the corn maze, they like to get lost and then have their dad help them find their way out. Such a good time for the whole family.

  58. Emma oliver October 10, 2015 at 10:10 am

    I am entering in hopes of winning so my whole family could come! I am 21 years old with 2 younger sisters, 9 & 13. They usually go to a pumpkin patch each year but this would surely be something much more fun & enjoyable! & of course bringing the whole family along, they would surely get a kick out of it. Such neat activities! The zip line & petting zoo would probably be favorites! & i would love to try the pumpkin sling shots! Thanks for the oppurtunity, fingers crossed:)

  59. Marianne West October 10, 2015 at 10:19 am

    We’ve never been to Harvest Acres and honestly I’ve never even heard of this destination before! We’re always seeking new places to enjoy family outings with our six children… This sounds like a fun place to add to our fall festivities 🙂
