At Freeman Family Farms, it's not just a pumpkin, it's an adventure
Mark Freeman had a dream to offer Families a chance to come out and share his farm and the beauty of Indiana 's fall season. After helping write the AGRITOURISM bill that became law,He was invited to the Governors office to witness the signing of the Indiana Agitourism Act that allows and promotes agi-tourism and maybe one way to save farms such as Freeman's. He and his wife, Yvonne, aS WELL AS the entire family and staff,welcome both new visitors and those that return year after year.
They are working on I-69 at the farm. It will cut across the farm and take about half of the upper pastures. The stakes are in place and the bulldozers are there.
We think we may have the hayride follow the path that I-69 is going to take so that years from now your family can say " we used to ride a hay wagon there before it was I-69" as you drive by at 70 MPH. Maybe not, but . . .
Special JEEP TOURS of the farm and I-69 area are available
