Tons to do at Uesugi Farms. Some rides suited for small kids are always a big draw. There's a neat little train that takes the kids around the farm. A fairly easy to navigate corn maze that will have the kids confused enough to be fun but not leave them screaming for mom and dad. There's a petting zoo where the little ones can get a little closer to nature....heck, even Mom and Dad can get in a few pets. The pumpkin lab helps you pick out the absolute best pumkpin for whatever you plan on carving into your gourd. For the more adventorous little one, a hay jump provides a little adrenaline.
