Overview
More
A real working Texas ranch with more than 50 acres amusements and activities for the entire family. Perfect for a family day out, kids' birthday parties, reunions, or corporate events with lots to do and party pavilions for gatherings. We offer lots of activities for all ages including pony rides, putt putt golf, hayrides, train ride, swimming pool, petting zoo and farm activities like feeding and milking cows. Our ranch is very educational and popular with schools and homeschool parents for field trips. The ranch is home to popular seasonal events such as our Easter Bunny Visit & Egg Hunt, the Pumpkin Patch & Scarecrow Festival, and the Santa Ranch Express. Call the ranch for weather closures as well as seasonal closures which are generally mid-December through February and August through September.

We had our company picnic here and it was a great family place for it. There are a variety of activities. We especially enjoyed the hay ride out to feed the cows. They even came right up and ate out of your hand.

Went with two two year olds and a nine year. The heat was sweltering but that's not their fault; although, I do think the activities are wayyy too spaced apart with little to no shade or cover for the walks. Bring plenty of sunscreen. We...More

We do wish we could control the heat during the summer. When the original owner designed the ranch, he wanted it to be spread out so when we do have crowds everyone isn't right on top of each other. We are looking considering misting stations...More

Very neat place to take the kids who have never been around animals. If this place is reserved by family reunions or schools, there are very few public places to sit. There are only two bathrooms for the whole place that we found and are...More
