Fall Farm Fun at Trunnell’s Family Fun Acre & Farm Market

 photo trunnel_zpsv3ddtbyn.jpgNear Owensboro, you can find Trunnell’s Family Fun Acre and spend hours having fun this fall and enjoying delicious food. We visited this summer and from what I can tell, it is definitely a destination to put on your trip list for the fall.  This family-run farm looks like a quaint farm market from the road but just over the hill behind their store lies a field of fun – seriously.

Every fall, they have a corn maze (and mini corn maze), hay rides, pumpkin patch, a hay bale jump, the korny korn crib and bonfire pits. These attractions are in addition to their jumping pillow, animal interactions, giant slide, tractor tricycles and more. They have gem mining too!  There’s tons to do.

Their calendar is packed with special events each weekend. 

2017 brings movies every Saturday night in October….and fireworks!

They also have a fantastic farm market and FRESH FUDGE in so many different flavors.  You will be able to find something to eat there and treats to take home, the place was packed with really high quality items.

Here’s what our writers had to say about Trunnell’s:

pit with the slide. In the fall is filled with corn and kids can slide
into it and play. The rock mining was also a lot of fun! ~Lauren

loved this farm and can’t say enough about how much fun we had. My
youngest really liked feeding the pig and cow. My oldest enjoyed jumping
on the jump pillow and riding the pedal tractors. My youngest (5 years
old) tried the tractors but had a
difficult time being successful because his legs weren’t quite long
enough. The mining activity was neat and they enjoyed looking at the
identification sheet to match up what they had. And of course we stopped
at the market on the way home and got some tomatoes, peaches, and bbq
sauce. I would drive back just for the peaches, yum! I liked that you
could sample some of the items as well. We had a great time and plan to
go back.  ~Kelly

My kids said “I liked the mining
because I got to bring home all my gems!! The tractors were too hard for
me, but daddy helped so I could make it around. My favorite part was that big giant pillow in the ground! And, I
liked feeding the animals with baby bottles.“and “the petting farm with the babies was cool”  We
have already looked into returning for their fall events, which looks
to be pretty awesome! I believe our pumpkins are going to come from
Trunnel’s this year! ~Karen

loved Trunnels! My kids loved feeding the animals – especially the
pig! The big pillow was awesome and I can see us going back for another
jumping session. I really liked how many things the farm had for
kiddos to do – big tractor tricycles, the sand
bag where the kids mined for gems, the petting area, and the big slide –
just to name a few – making it fun for my five year old AND my almost
ten year old. The folks were really friendly and I can’t wait to go
back for their Peanut’s “Great Pumpkin” theme in October!  ~Dana

had a great time at Tunnels! My girls loved the petting zoo and being
able to feed the animals with the baby bottle. They also enjoyed mining
for gems. My 5 year old loved the giant slide! ~Kimberly
