SEASONAL ACTIVITIES

Jerry Smith Farm offers a variety of fun, affordable activities throughout our June-October season. Our Country Store is always well-stocked with homemade treats (including our famous frosted cookies), produce and unique home decor items. Parking is always free!

Activities kick into high gear during our busy fall season. Visitors of all ages can enjoy more than two dozen hand-painted pumpkin displays, originally designed and created by our own Rosemary Smith. Rosemary’s daughter-in-law, Amy Smith, lovingly continues this tradition. New scenes debut each fall and generations of families have taken photos alongside these colorful, creative pumpkin characters.

There is never any charge for parking, strolling through the pumpkin displays or shopping at the Country Store.

To make a reservation for a sloth, wallaby or armadillo encounter please call (847) 849-6303 during the week from 5-7:30. Leave message with time slot, your name and telephone number. We will book 15 minute time slots on Tuesday – Friday. Weekends are first come first serve. Please note that all animals do need to take short breaks from time to time.

Scooter’s last day at the farm is Sunday, October 27. All of the weekday sloth encounters are now booked. Saturday, October 26 & Sunday, October 27 sloth encounters will be booked on a first come, first served basis in the petting zoo tent in the activity area. Thank you to everyone that showed Scooter some love this fall at Jerry Smith Farm.
