i went on a friday and was shocked that they wanted $12 per person admission and you couldnt even see what you were paying $12 for.... $36 total (2 kids and 1 adult) before I have even purchased a pumpkin! the "activities" you are paying for are all the way across the farm so you can't see if it is worth it. they should be charging per activity ... I probably paid more or the same at the next farm I went to but i paid for what my kids wanted, not unseen activities. dont go here. by the way, the pumpkins are thrown on grass, pretty lame

Happy Day Farm, what a great name. From the minute we arrived at the Farm, you could see a huge field filled with pumpkins of all shapes and sizes. After admissions, we were taken by a hay ride which was not only safe and clean but, kid friendly too. After a short ride we, heard a man annoucing pig races. Our children wanted to go but, they could not decide where they wanted to go first. Was it the corn maze, the pumpkin blaster, rubber duck water races, go-carts, rubber bouncey horses, or to get some food from the concession stand. After watching the pig races, with a man who was very funny and entertaining, we then went onto another hayride to a petting zoo and pony rides. Fun was had by all. The most enjoyable time for my husband and I was to see the photos we had taken of our childrens smiling faces. The excitement watching them run from pumpkin to pumpkin to pick the best one, was definately worth the money and more. We can't wait to go back before the season ends. Good luck and thank you

We used to travel to Chester to visit a farm during October every year, but they have gotten overcrowded and hiked up their prices so we decided to try Happy Day Farm in our hometown. We love it and will continue to come here! The staff is super friendly and it is so refreshing to see a true family run farm with actual members of the family participating in the activities and being around the property. My son and I had a blast on the pedal carts and my daughter LOVED the multiple hay rides and the petting zoo! There are plenty of opportunities for great photos, and the pumpkins are reasonably priced. We didnt feel jiped after we left. Give this beautiful farm a visit, you wont regret it.
