When you come to the farm as a visitor, you can experience so much while you are here. Visit with our friendly animals, take a hayride, pony ride and Cow Train ride. Bring your lunch and enjoy a picnic under the stately trees in our picnic area! Your kids will have a great time in our play areas and on our many slides, too! If you need a snack or drink while you are here, visit our Castle Store. We are excited to announce that we have added two great food vendors to the choices you have for a treat while you are visiting us or to take home. Touche Touchet Bakery will be tempting you with dinosaur cookies, quick breads and other great treats. Paddle and Scoop Ice Cream Co will offer delicious handmade ice cream in dixie cups, homemade ice cream sandwiches and pints of wonderful seasonal flavors.

You can also find unique gift items in our Castle Store from Enchanted Forest books, bags and cards to our children's books about Trusty the Tractor. There is something for everyone at Clark's Elioak Farm.
