For nearly a decade, Flat Acres Farm has be the go-to for Parker residents looking for fun come fall. Family owned since 1948, Flat Acres farm was originally an irrigated hay farm but irrigation issues in 2007 forced them to halt their hay business and the family was left to figure out what the next phase of life for Flat Acres Farm was to be. Almost ten years ago, the idea to offer Parker residents a local pumpkin patch was born and with each passing year, the fall festivities at Flat Acres continue to get bigger and better.

There’s a little something for everyone at Flat Acres. For the little ones (10 & under) admission will grant them access to the Bounce House, Petting Zoo, Duck Races, Corn Boxes, the Tractor Pull Hay Ride, Corn Maze, Bale Maze, Obstacle Course and Climbing Wall. Of course, mom and dad are welcome to get in on the fun too, all this is too fun to just watch!

For those who have been out to Flat Acres before, you may notice a few changes this year. The Petting Zoo, which will be twice the size as it was last year, is getting a few new, furry faces with the addition of a draft horse, a mule and a Zorse!

Everyone that walks through the entrance will get a FREE mini pumpkin or gourd to take home, yes EVERYONE, and you can purchase local honey, corn stalks, hay bales and of course, pumpkins of all sizes, to create your own festive fall décor at home! For an additional fee, you can also try out the Bungee Jump and Air-Soft Shooting Range.

If all this fun starts to work up an appetite, visit one of the four food trucks that will be ready to crush your cravings. Funnelicious Funnel Cakes, George’s Kettle Corn, Colorado Pizza Company and Cold Smoke Ice Cream will all be on hand for everything from sweet treats to roasted corn, hamburgers and hot dogs!

What would a Halloween outing be without something spooky? For those who dare, Reaper’s Hollow is back again. Voted as one of the top 3 haunted attractions in Colorado last year, Reaper’s Hollow is back with the “Newly Remodeled Dead End Hotel”, Goblin’s Grove and the Corn Maze. Nearly 70 actors come out each night to get their “fright” on. None of the effects are mechanical or robotic; it’s 100% authentic scares out there. These attractions are not recommended for children under 13 years of age.

If you’re looking to add a little pumpkin spice to your fall birthday party or corporate party, Flat Acres can accommodate your group. They also host preschool groups, school groups, and moms groups during the week.

There’s so much to see and do, you’ll have to come more than once! Head out to Flat Acres Farm for some serious scares and a lot of fall fun!
