A. Casola Farms is a centuries-old family farm maintained by couple Kim and Antonio Weigand Casola. Unlike a regular farm, this place is full of festivities, unusual activities and even haunted attractions! You can visit the farmlands, greenhouses and nurseries for a tour anytime but the best experience is during their seasonal fests. Autumns usher in activities like picking and decorating your own pumpkin, roasting corn, enjoying pony rides, face painting and a spectacular Wild West Show. Do not miss the Haunted House of Horrors, replete with scary wooded trails, zombie attacks, haunted barns, hayrides and the bizarre Corn Walk of Terror. In winter, you can drink warming apple cider, indulge in craft work, watch the nativity scene recreated with live animals and even get children to write letters to Santa. Even during non-festive times, their wine tasting events and tours through exotic flower and plant nurseries are full of fun.
