Kuipers Family Farm

1N318 Watson Road, Maple Park, IL 60151

Hiking & Trails

While there is a lot to look at on the farm, this is certainly no museum. Instead, running, climbing, adventure, fresh air and kid-powered fun is growing here by the bushel!

Fall season begins August 20th when the orchard opens for apple picking (Sat & Sun only) and the aroma of fresh apple cider doughnuts, home-baked pies, fudge, pasteurized apple cider and hand-spun caramel apples from The Orchard Shop and Bakery lingers in the air. September 17th the west side of the farm opens for some down-on-the-farm-fun like The Maize Corn Maze, hayrides, farm animals, a haunted forest, tractor tire mountain, peddle tractor derby, nature walk, jumping pillows, pumpkin picking and much more. Be sure to catch the Pig Races and The Cowboy Randy Roping Show on the weekends. The Pumpkin Farm is a great place to host your child’s birthday party or visit with your Scout group (see website for package details). November and December at the farm is dedicated to the holidays with pies and specialty foods for entertaining, unique gifts for giving and of course, Christmas trees. Select a freshly harvested Pine or Fir from our huge selection.
