Now that the snow has melted and the sun is shining, you’re probably thinking about getting those pumpkin patch visits win before the season is over! Well, add Harvest Farm to your calendar before it’s too late.
Harvest Farm is a 209-acre farm and rehabilitation center for men, located in Wellington, Colorado. The Farm accommodates up to 72 men who participate in a long-term program with the goal of breaking the cycles of addiction and homelessness. Harvest Farm works in partnership with Fort Collins Rescue Mission, and both operate under the umbrella of Denver Rescue Mission. Program participants at Harvest Farm take part in the five-phase New Life Program, designed to help them gain the skills, stability and self-esteem necessary to become productive, self-sufficient members of society. This nationally recognized rehabilitation program combines academics, life skills classes, Bible study, work therapy, and Christian counseling in a curriculum extending up to 27 months.
The 15th Annual Harvest Farm Festival & Corn Maze is a fun family event with attractions such as a 10-acre corn maze, yard games, hay wagon rides, petting zoo and much more. Last year, they had more than 16,000 people attend the Festival and it’s become a fall tradition for many families, including us!
Along with many popular attractions like their roping area and corn cannons, the Festival will feature special events this year including a Broncos Day, Artisan Market, Dance Performances and more. October 21st sounds like a fabulous weekend with horse-drawn carriage rides being provided that day.
