Our play area is open Friday-Sunday 10am-6:30pm (September 15th-October), but other weekdays may be reserved for field trips or large groups by calling (309)582-5114.
The greenhouse area is open 7 days a week thru October (Monday-Thursday hours are 8am-4:30pm) for shopping and browsing of plants, pumpkins, gourds and other items with no admission. You can also see the goats, donkeys and pigs before entrance to the playground at no charge.
At this time, we do not have a “pick your own pumpkin off the vine” option, but we continue stocking the greenhouse area with pre-cut items that you can choose to purchase.
SHADY KNOLL FARM
Enjoy the experience of picking your pumpkins and decorations from our U-Pick patch. If you prefer to have yours pre picked, around the barnyard is an assortment for you to shop. Let the kids burn some energy off in our small Sorghum maze. It is only half an acre and is quick for the little ones. Go in as many times as you like. Tickets are $2 a person/child and can be bought at the pumpkin shack. Try to find your way out of our large corn maze, we promise there is an exit! It can take you 15 to 40 minutes to complete. Tickets are $6 a person, and are sold at the pumpkin shack. Buy a bag of oats at the Pumpkin Shack and feed our sheep and goats.
