about The Farm at Swan's Trail:
We loved the place's friendliness - we arrived on a late summer day to pick some dahlias from the flower garden - and felt welcome to roam around and enjoy the beautiful setting even though we didn't enter the corn maze. Our bug-mad son found huge grasshoppers, spiders, and butterflies to keep him busy, while the toddler ran barefoot on the huge lawn and visited the free petting farm.
Look for a hay maze in the big red barn, or, from Aug-Oct, ride the wagon out to a 12-acre corn maze that's been cut into the shape of Washington State. Kids can traverse highways and roads within the maze, learning state geography along the way. Picnic at tables under the shelter, or buy reasonably priced hot dogs, chili, pie, cookies, and drinks from Little Piggy's Bistro, open on weekends from 10am-close. A putting course is located on-site, as is a softball field, volleyball, basketball, bocce, badminton, and wagon rides - call for details if you plan on coming with a group.
Field trips are available for schoolkids during the fall.
Bathrooms are of the port-a-potty variety, and there aren't any diaper-changing facilities.
Birthday parties are available from Jun-Aug. The 1.5-hour party includes the hay maze, petting farm, Mr. McGregor's garden and cottage, a playground area, and supervision by farm staff. Parents can provide other treats, as well.
