Description from their website:

Ferrari Farms was established in 1913.  Through the years it has changed from a 23 acre, full-fledged tilled-by-horse farm to what it is today.  The barn was built in 1890 and still stands today in its original form.

For over 15 years Ferrari Farms has been hosting field trips to Northern Nevada schools. Bring your class and give your students the opportunity to grow their knowledge base in an out-of-the-classroom environment by seeing where their food comes from, how it grows and by learning how we benefit from different animals and mother earth.

Spend your day attempting to navigate your way through our 5-acre corn maze. This ever-changing path is sure to leave you lost, turned around and searching for the Scarecrow exit.

Take a hayride on our tractor pulled trailer where you’ll get a beautiful view of the farm and the Truckee River.

Spend hours searching through over 40 different varieties of pumpkins, squash, gourds and decorations perfect for your harvest season. We have dozen of different sizes, colors and shapes.

If you’re up for the challenge, take your shot at holding on to “Rico,” our mechanical bull, as he bucks and spins.

For the little ones, stop by our jumbo pumpkin bounce house and let them jump some of their energy out.

Once you’ve worked up an appetite, head over to our grill for some good ol’ grub.

Stroll on over to visit our farm animals who are waiting to make new friends.

As the sun goes down, help us hunt live zombie’s on our paintball trailer as they wander through the fields. We provide everything you need so you can just hop aboard and shoot. This is a sure good time for all ages.

If that’s not scary enough, roam through our haunted corn field but be prepared as anything could be lurking through the corn.

What to bring: Farm-ready shoes and clothes (dirt, hay, animals, grass), weather-appropriate clothing/layers, hat, sunglasses, hand sanitizer/baby wipes for cleaning up, bottled water, stroller, backpack to carry your cool kid-sized pumpkin
