One of seven of the stops is described below
Grandaddy’s Farmwww.grandaddysfarm.com Starting with great-grandfather Charles Dixon, the Dixon family has been farming at this location since May 1951. They continue to row crop throughout the year while producing all of the fruits and vegetables that are sold on their farm. Nine years ago, this traditional farming family decided to open their doors to the world of agritourism. Today, visitors not only come to buy their Fall produce and decorations for their home, but they can also enjoy a variety of activities such as the 5 acre corn maze, the 150ft. Landslide, Hilltop Hopper, Hillbilly Downs’ bouncy ponies, pig and duck races, tire mountain, and a variety of farm animals. They also host a Hillbilly 5k on opening weekend in September, support Breast Cancer Awareness with their pink pumpkins in October, and close out their season the first week in November with their Pumpkin Demolition.
