We are excited to share our family farm with our guest as we celebrate our 8th season of the Kuehnert Dairy Fall Festival and 123 years of family farming. The 2020 season begins on September 18th and continues weekends only through October 25th.  Come enjoy our American Heroes themed corn maze and festival festivities as we make tribute to everyday heroes!  We hope that you will join us to experience farm life while creating your own family memories.


Dairy Cows:

Get up and close to our black and white beauties- the heart and soul of Kuehnert Dairy Farm.  Visit the freestall barn to see where the adult cows live, eat and drink, sleep and get milked 24 hours a day.  “Our girls” are what make our Fall Festival the unique experience that it is!

Baby Calves:

No better opportunity for your little ones to visit and touch a newborn baby calf. Open the gate, go right on in and enjoy-there is nothing sweeter!

Robotic Milking Facility:

Visit the focal point of our dairy farm and see the how we utilize modern agricultural technology in our operation.  These fully automated milking machines milk our cows 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Watch the robots milk and learn how they are great for the cows and good for us.

The Corn Pit:

Did someone say HUGE sandbox?? Nope, the Corn Pit is even better! Kids will enjoy the large pit filled with shelled corn where they can slide and play in this special area. It is one of the many highlights of our Fall Festival-a DO NOT miss opportunity!

Straw Mountain:

Where kids can run, jump, climb up and over, and slide through our pyramid of giant straw bales.  The mountain is equipped with tunnels, secret rooms and multiple slides – another highlight of our Fall Festival, DO NOT leave without climbing to the top for the great view!

Corn Maze:

Come lose yourself in our all new 5-acre corn maze at the fall festival! This family friendly attraction will have you adventuring your way through corn-lined trails that twist, turn and dead-ends. Come see how quickly you can get through our maze, may the force be with you.

Farm Tours:

The ultimate highlight of our Fall Festival!  Jump on the hayride for a complete farm tour of Kuehnert Dairy Farm. The hayride runs all open weekend hours.


Choose from our great assortment of pre-picked Indiana grown pumpkins. Pumpkins range in price from $1-$10 (additional charge-not included in general admission).

Pumpkin Painting:

Paint your pumpkin while at the farm!  Free attraction- but you first must buy one of our Indiana grown pumpkins in order to paint one.


Classic game, fun for two or the whole family.

Test your skill at hand milking Pam the Holstein.

Photo Spots:

Don’t forget your camera!  Located throughout the festival are photo opportunities with our hand painted cutouts.

Jump Pad:

Measuring in at 30 feet by 70 feet, this is not your typically bounce house.  It is much cooler and larger!


Enjoyable during the day or at night.  Sit and relax, warm up or even roast your own hotdog and smores.  Hotdog and smore kits are available at the food tent onsite (additional charge for food and drink items-not included in general admission. No outside food or drinks allowed).

Moo-Go Round:

Usually cows and merry-go-rounds don’t mix, but here at Kuehnert Dairy Farm they do!

Milk Truck Express:

Designed as Vintage milk trucks, weave through the corn maze with your little one.  Hear the giggles and awes as you pass by the cows out in the fields.

Scavenger Hunt:

Test your dairy knowledge in our 5-acre corn maze.  Scavenger Hunt cards available in the Admission Tent when entering the Fall Festival.  Once completed visit the Beverage Station to receive your free milk!

Just the place a kid can be a kid, young or old! Enjoy the Tile Swing, Milk Carton slide, Moo-Go-Round, Ninja Warrior Course, Tether Ball, and Holy Cow Football.

Cornhole Games:

After getting lost in the corn maze, enjoy a game of beanbag toss.

Ninja Warrior Courses:

Playground Area:

Life sized junga set for hours of enjoyment.

Holycow Football:

Step right on up and test your throwing accuracy!  Holy Cow, you might be surprised at how difficult it really is!
