There is a movement––called Agri-Tainment––throughout the United States, the United Kingdom and Europe, encouraging families to go to local farms, get outside and play for a day of fun together. Mainstay Farm is part of this movement. Through our national and international associations we have connected with other farmers and made many friends. Farmers always want to encourage other farmers, no matter the crop or type of operation, no matter what country. Every year we tour other agri-tainment farms. Sometimes we visit farms overseas and other times we visit farms in the Great USA. Our goal is to bring back excellence to Mainstay Farm any way we can. We are always scouting to find unique family fun activities that you won't find any where else. Our goal is for you to have a great experience with your family. We invite you to come see us soon and have Big Time Fun!

This Scottish event is a real spectacle. We picked it up on a visit to see our friends who own Rectory Farm in the U.K. The Sheep race every 1-1/2 hours. Wagering between family members allowed.
Each summer we look for new attractions to build. Marianna taught English as a Second Language with a group from our church in Latvia. While there, she found these remarkable swings. You absolutely will love them.
While visiting farm parks in the UK we visited a farm with a feature called an Aerial Runway. So we bought four of them. They resemble a low zip-line with a pommel seat for the rider. Yeeeeee Haaaaaaa!
The Dig now has more '60s and '70s Tonka toys than ever. Jim loves Old School anything. This year he fixated on finding more dump trucks, road graders and earth movers for The Dig Sand Excavation attraction. Bring your young excavators.
Our Amish Trikes now have a paved track at Little Farmer Acres.
Named for Mainstay Farm's donkey-mascot "Buggy," our paved race track is home to race fans old and young.
When you come upon a bucket full of chalk, you take one... give one to each of your kids... and start drawing.
Kids love to dig, and we've got the perfect spot.
Old-fashioned water-pump handles provide the propulsion and the rubber ducks float as fast as you can pump.
Home-cooked farm cuisine is our specialty.
Mainstay Farm's tank is stocked with channel catfish.
Catch a ride on one of Mainstay's covered hayless hay wagons.
It's impossible to jump without laughing your head off on Mainstay Farm's jumping pillow.
You must be kidding; a three-story tree house? Nope, you heard right! And to get down, just pick a slide.
A low zip-line with a pommel seat for the rider. Yeeeeee Haaaaaaa!
Grab a burlap sack and jump in the chute for the 5 second ride of your life on our 100 foot super chute slide.
A big barn full of hay is the perfect place to explore, climb, jump and play.
