Fall Fun for Everyone

Visit Enchanted Acres

Who says that learning can't be fun? Not the team at Enchanted Acres. Our quaint farm in Sheffield, IA, is the perfect place to learn about agriculture first-hand. You and your family, friends or community group can visit us to feed goats, pick pumpkins and create beautiful seasonal crafts.

Every weekend during our fall season we offer workshops ranging from painting pumpkins to planting succulents. On Saturdays and Sundays, the little ones can look forward to Books in the Barn story time, complete with a themed story and activity. Learn more about our fall activities now by calling 515-371-0450.
