Special Events at the Farm for 2020

Dear Santa Event

We invite you and your family to experience the magic of Christmas here at the farm at the Dear Santa event. In our Christmas wonderland you will find arts and crafts, special Christmas treats, and a chance to visit and feed the animals! Next, your child will be able to send their letter to Santa before meeting the man himself. And the best part, each child will receive a personalized letter back to them in the mail from Santa! This event will be offered on weekends in December and pre purchasing your ticket is required.

Light Display

Join us on weekends in December for an indoor Christmas light display. Walk through our transformed greenhouse and get lost in a magical Christmas wonderland! There will be several greenhouses decorated, each with their own theme. While this is our first year offering this event, you’re sure to be mesmerized by all the lights.

Sunflower Fest

Come walk through five acres packed with brilliant colored sunflowers during our first ever Sunflower Festival at Gull Meadow Farms. Mark your calendars for August 9th-11th and August 16th-18th (weather dependent). With more than a dozen different colors of sunflowers, this is an event you do NOT want to miss!
