Andrew's Scenic Acres

Andrews' Scenic Acres
With a scenic view, a beautiful picnic area, a large creative playground, a farm animal corral and free hayrides, a visit to Andrews’ Scenic Acres is a pleasurable family occasion. As we are a local destination we have been enjoying community visitors since 1980. From our first day to the present, the number one attraction for our farm has been the nearly unstoppable desire of all ages to hop onto the tractor drawn hay wagon and ride to the field for in season pick your own produce.

Our very popular BBQ operates daily during the summer and on Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays during the spring and fall. Available on the BBQ are beef Ball Park hotdogs, Oktoberfest pork sausages, veggie burgers and veggie samosas. Starting in late July or early August, we also have available hot buttered super sweet corn on the cob. Sweet corn grown on our farm is cooked in a turn of the century iron kettle formerly used for boiling maple syrup. There is nothing quite like Andrews’ super fresh, super sweet corn on the cob.
