Schnepf Farms

One of our favorite things about Fall is the festivals! We love picking out pumpkins, getting spooked by a haunted train ride or corn maze, and riding all the rides! 

Schnepf Farms has everything you need for the perfect Fall festival. We have been going since we were kids and it gets better and better every year.

It’s located in the heart of Queen Creek and run by the Schnepf Family. It’s been operating for over 75 years and every year they add something new and more exciting.

One of the things we love is the u-pick garden. You can pick your own fresh veggies and fruits and especially pick out the perfect pumpkin, just in time to carve it for Halloween.

Spooky Train Ride

The spooky train ride is always a family favorite. During the day it gives you the opportunity to see most of the farm and all the festivities. At night time, the ghosts and goblins come out. It takes you through a dark, thick forest complete with a graveyard and several live, spooky characters. It also travels through a tunnel with a strobe light and some scary d├ęcor. Our 2, 4 and 6 year olds did just fine with all the ghosts and goblins, so we would definitely say it’s kid-friendly.

The treats are a major seller for us. We love the candy coated pecans, the cotton candy, and our personal favorite, funnel cake. They have so many yummy festival treats available so make sure to come hungry!

Photo opportunities

There are lots of photo opportunities. Instead of paying money for a Fall photo shoot to get that perfect family photo, bring your nice iPhone and snap a bunch of portraits at one of the many photo op locations including hay bails, pumpkin patches, old trucks, tractors, sunflower garden, corn maze and more!

Free rides

Once you get in, all the rides (not including the train) are free! There are all kinds of kid-friendly rides including a roller coaster, swings, flying airplanes, and my kids’ personal favorite, the giant slide! They also have an adult fair ride that my stomach couldn’t handle, but if you’re a thrill seeker, my husband definitely enjoyed it!

Plenty of entertainment

They also offer all kinds of entertainment, tons of food options and private s’mores bonfires. There is something for everyone. Bring the family, kids, make it a date night, a girl’s night out, or bring your professional photographer if you are an influencer or blogger.

Perfect family day out

Schnepf Farms is a family-friendly, family-owned farm and you will not be disappointed with your visit. There is way too much to do on this giant property. We were there for about five hours and still only did half of the activities offered at the farm.
