Yesterland Farm, Canton
Yesterland Farm in Canton is not your average pumpkin patch! It’s really an amusement park on dirt, with lots of games and activities for an entire day!!
Check out My Mommy Tips for making the most of your day!
1. Know Before You Go
Yesterland Farms has LOTS of free activities, and many activities that are an additional cost, or you can purchase a more expensive ticket that allows you to do EVERYTHING!
Purchase the basic ticket, and do ALL the free things FIRST! Trust me, there are so many that it will take you quite a while. Then decide which rides/attractions you want to pay for, and you can either purchase individually or upgrade your ticket!
Yesterland sells food, but picnic lunches and ice chest are allowed!! I LOVE that!!!
Dogs are also allowed at Yesterland Farm, if they are well behaved and on a leash. Of course, you must pick up after them!
2. Pumpkin Patch
Yesterland Farms has a Pumpkin Patch in October, with lots of cute photo opportunities! They don’t grow the pumpkins at the farm.
3. Corn Maze
My favorite Corn Maze! It’s huge! They have a fun game called Maize-O-Poly to play while inside the maze!
4. Giant Slide!
Whoosh down the Giant Slide, one of the activities included in a basic ticket at the farm!
5. Train Ride
My kids love the train ride that runs through the Christmas Trees, which are available in December to cut yourself!
The tractor pulled hayride was one of my favorites! We had our own “wagon-cart”, and it’s a nice long ride through the East Texas forest! Also, it’s included in the basic ticket admission!
7. Pig Races
Yesterland Farms is well known for it’s pig races! We had so much fun laughing and cheering for the smallest little piglets!
We attended during Alligator Weekend, when nearby East Texas Gators brought some of their “friends” for a special show! For more information on East Texas Gators, click HERE.
Next to the pig races is the Petting Zoo, where you can see lots of adorable farm animals, including baby pigs! In fact, they were selling so of the babies, which meant I had to keep my daughter FAR AWAY from the barn! She LOVES pigs!
8. Food and Drinks
Yesterland Farms sells some terrific food, including bar-be-cue, turkey legs, sausage on a stick, corn (of course) and real old tyme drinks like Sarsaparilla, Birch Beer, Root Beer and Creme Sodas!
9. Apple Cannons
If you do nothing else at Yesterland Farms, you MUST try the apple cannons! When I first saw the cannons, I thought, “What a waste of apples!”, but after watching the first apple disintegrate on contact with one of the many targets, I was sold forever!
Perfect for a group, there are 6 campfire sites that can be reserved for 2.5 hours for $50. Bring your own hot dogs or things for smores, including the skewers! Don’t forget baby wipes for easy clean up!
11. Christmas at the Farm
Each December, Yesterland Farm celebrates Christmas with cut your own trees and hayrides! Admittance to the park is free, and there are many free activities, as well as the rides, like Santa’s Runaway Sleigh Roller Coaster at an additional cost. Santa is also at the farm on select weekends for pictures!
12. Make a Day of It
Other Canton places of interest include Splash Kingdom Water Park, Old City Lake and First Monday Trade Days.
Don’t miss lunch at one of my favorites, Buttermilks, located on the square in historic downtown Canton.
