Note: Beware the copycat websites like the one that stole
our name and uses .farm extension: they copied my work and do NOT even update
the info! I make updates EVERY day. They use tech tricks to get higher rankings,
but have many more inaccuracies and out-dated info. Obviously, I cannot check
every farm every day, but I do check as many as I can every day, and respond to
all requests. They don't. Don't support the scammers!
Remember to always check with the farm's own website or Facebook
page before you go - or call or email them if they don't have a website or
Facebook page. Conditions at the farms and crops can change literally
overnight, so if you want to avoid a wasted trip out there - check with
the farm directly before you go!
And if you know of any farms I missed and want to
add a farm, please let me know!

I agreed to
remove most info about them; my experiences there several years ago (2016-2017) were terrible and there
were reviews on Facebook in 2020 that their customer service still
Their reviews in Spring 2021 on Google are a bit better. More positive reviews. The complaints still some about unfriendly staff and
high prices, but it sounds like they
have improved some.
Here are some quoted
brief excerpts (you can go to Facebook to see the full reviews):
If you go,
please let me know how
it was for you. I hate to give a farm an undeserved low rating, (it's very rare), and if they have improved, I would love to reflect that.
A sampling of some of the criticisms:
, "we would not go back to Warbington. The staff is extremely unfriendly & unprepared".
October 2020: Avoid it at all costs. Absolutely a rip off.
October 2020: Ridiculously
expensive for nothing. Not much to do. Not many animals. Not sure what kind of farm this is. BORING!
10, 2018: "We recently had our daughter's birthday party there. While the
farm was charming and fun for the kids the run around, their customer
service was terrible. ..."
March 26, 2018: "I went to the egg hunt and it
was ok. It was high priced. ..."
"t I was charged for a NEWBORN baby in
2016 $10 admission and $5 for me (adult)"
October 22, 2017: "Warbington
Farms sucks a**. I wish my family and I would have gone to Randy's pumpkin
patch, or the one in Buford"
December 10, 2017: "I paid nearly $30 for my
kids to play on a snow covered playground. A lot of the "fun" things to do
were misrepresented. It was so unorganized and no one seemed to know what
was going on when..."
