Have you ever experienced a top ten? Maybe it is top ten ice cream flavors at a parlor, listening to the top ten songs of the week on your favorite radio station or it could be trying top ten most popular workouts of the year…but have you ever experienced one of the top ten corn mazes in the United States? There is one right in our backyard!
Located at 150 Cherry Hill Road in Ronks you will find Cherry Crest Farm, an incredible space that has been within Lancaster County for over twenty-five years. This farm offers amples of events and activities for school, friends, and families! The farm is open in Spring, Summer and Fall months.This is an adventure farm that is operated with only solar power and has over 300 acres of land! What is wonderful about Cherry Crest Farm is that they are driven by their mission, vision and values in all the work they do through entertainment, service, education and cultivation. The farm has eight values and they are:
- Biblical Stewardship
- Simple Fun
- Exceeding Expectations
The farm dates back to the early 1700’s but was owned by a different family and over the years the farm has switched families until the current owners, the Coleman family. Their farm is made up of beef cows, crop farm, and a ton of activities for fun from their famous corn maze to a jump pillow, petting zoo, slide, wagon ride and more! If you have children they would absolutely love all the games and activities to do at the farm. Let’s focus on their three months starting with spring since that is right around the corner…why not spark some ideas for the family and a day out on the farm!
Spring is known as “Early Season” at Cherry Crest Farm. During the spring you can enjoy over thirty activities. Help with the baby chicks or go to the paintball range…Cherry Crest works hard to bring a variety of activities in each season so that there is something for all age ranges. During the summer the fun and activities continue to grow from apple games & more. During the summer is also when the corn maze opens up and guess what…the path and design changes every year! Good luck to newcomers and regulars, what a way to keep the fun coming! During the fall Cherry Crest continues the maze fun while adding in classic fall favorites like a pumpkin patch! If you feel like you want a bigger challenge you can do the maze at night with flashlights too. Talk about creativity! With enough activities to fill multiple days I suggest you take a day or a few to experience the farm and they offer a variety of food options as well your whole family can enjoy the entire day including incredibly tasty treats! They have Chuck Wagon Cafe & Grill, Home Cookin’ Cafe, Maizie’s Dairy Barn and wagons of treats like: Apple Cider Donuts, pizza, kettle corn and lemonade. The Dairy Barn is definitely a must before you leave their ice cream and other sweets are mouth watering!
While the farm itself can give you a day outside full of laughter and enjoyment the Cherry Crest Farm does a wonderful job of adding in unique and creative events throughout their seasons to enjoy. From butter making demonstrations, pig races, bringing local wineries and breweries to the farm, fireworks, music and variety shows. The farm’s events are each different. Be sure to check out their seasonal event calendar to find out how you can enjoy one of their special days on the property with friends!
Cherry Crest is a great way for enjoying a nice day outside, having a birthday party, having a campfire, booking a field trip for your students or an afternoon of live music. The innovative way Cherry Crest uses their land, and space to provide a true one of a kind experience is exactly why they are one of the top tens you need to experience this spring!
As we power through the cold weather and get closer to spring be sure to check Cherry Crest Farm out and when they open this spring plan a trip with your friends or family. You will have an absolute blast at the adventure farm, this is a great way to get outside, learn about the local environment and support a local family owned business! Can’t wait to hear what you think of this wonderful spot!
