PLEASE NOTE: Underwood Family Farms' Fall Harvest Festival is open to the public for a $15.00 entrance fee on September 29, September 30, October 6 & 7 and $20.00 on October 13, 14, 20, 21, 27, & 28.

Active military, fire, police personnel, and first responders will receive free admission on September 29 & September 30 with valid ID.

Attractions include a farm stand with fresh produce grown on site, pick-your-own fruits and vegetables and three hundred tons of hard-to-find pumpkins of all shapes, sizes, colors, and varieties that are grown especially for the Festival. The Fall Harvest Festival is the only place where visitors can ride around the farm in wagons pulled by massive draft horses. Back this year are stilt walkers, Heide on Horse, a singing cowboy, a live chicken show and a real combine slide! Of special interest is the complex maze of corn stalks constructed to challenge young adventurers as well as the corn stalk labyrinth. As in year's past, there will be country games, face painters, a train, temporary tattoos, the sling shot and corn cannon, a scarecrow booth and giant pyramids of hay bales for children to climb.

Underwood Family Farms' ever-changing Animal Center is home to numerous animals such as ponies, cows, sheep, emus, pigs, goats, donkeys and rabbits - just to name a few! And visitors are continually awed by Underwood's specially designed goat ramp, a structure built above visitors' heads on which a herd of pygmy goats scamper. Be sure not to miss the Animal Show held throughout the day on the weekends at the hand-painted outdoor theater as well as our 11th year of Pig Races!

The Fall Festival is also a fundraising opportunity for organizations such as 4-H Groups, Scouts, and many local high school bands and groups. In return for their help with the activities, the farm makes a donation to each of their organizations. In addition, the Camarillo Lions Club barbecues hamburgers and hot dogs, and roasts fresh sweet corn to benefit their charitable work. Last year, over $100,000 of the revenue went towards non-profit organizations.

The farm is open every day from 9:00am to 6:00pm March through Thanksgiving and weekends the day after Thanksgiving through mid-December. Underwood Family Farms is located right off the 23 Freeway between Thousand Oaks, Moorpark, and Simi Valley. Make sure to visit our website at www.underwoodfamilyfarms.com
