It's wide open fun on the farm!
The Peach Wagon at YesterLand Farm in Canton is open, and it’s bringing you all things summer!
You can enjoy fresh fruit, like peaches and watermelon, good barbecue, up-close experiences with animals and summer fun on amusement rides. The event is from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day.
The Peach Wagon is a new adventure for YesterLand Farm, and it all started as a response to COVID-19.
“With COVID, we were not able to do our seasonal event called Bunnypalooza. It’s our Easter event and it was in the middle of the shutdowns,” said Kama Bozeman, owner of YesterLand Farm. “We decided we would create a new, laid-back, more relaxed summer event. You know, peaches just speak of summertime to me, and who doesn’t love homemade peach ice cream? So we wanted to incorporate that into it.”
Peach Wagon is different from other events at YesterLand Farm, because you can access and enjoy parts of the farm without paying an admission fee.
Take advantage of the complimentary access to enjoy:
Homemade Peach Ice Cream
Hog Wild Grill
Dixie General Store
And plenty of photo spots
“In that area up front, we have homemade peach ice cream, and we bring in peaches from an East Texas orchard,” said Bozeman. “We have watermelons and fresh cut up fruit. We have our fresh-made slushes with real fruit, both peach and strawberry. And one of our new favorites is the cream slush. So we’ve add some vanilla ice cream to our slushes and they are fabulous.”
You can also grab some barbecue, including the new additions like ribs and sausage plates.
“[You’re now] able to come out and get some barbecue and peaches and ice cream and get back on the highway and go without paying any admission,” said Bozeman.
In addition to these activities, there’s also other great activities you can enjoy around the farm.
Summer Fun Admission into Peach Wagon includes:
Access to Animal Town
A cup of feed for the animals
A stick of feed for the parakeets
Access to rides like the carousel and roller coaster.
Admission $7.95 if purchased online, or $10.95 at the gate. You can purchase admission here.
In addition to Peach Wagon, YesterLand Farm is also gearing up for their Farmtastic Fourth.
“We’ve come up with a new event called Farmtastic Fourth and it’s going to be on July 3rd and 4th,” said Bozeman. “We will have like 14 amusement rides, live music, the peach ice cream will be flowing, and we’re going to have a big fireworks show at 9:30 on both nights.”
Farmtastic Fourth will be from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. on both nights, and it’s a separate ticket from Peach Wagon.
Tickets are $15.95 and they’re only available online, and cannot be purchased in-person at the gate, in order to monitor the crowds to ensure safety for everyone in attendance. Click here to reserve your ticket to Farmtastic Fourth.
