Fall Open House

Saturday & Sunday, September 2 & 3, 2023
10am – 3pm

Sunflower Season update:

As Mother Nature has not been as kind to us this year, our Sunflower Season will look a little different. We are sad to announce that we will no longer have Pick Your Own sunflowers or sunflower field photo ops. But don’t fear! We have added a brand new event! Introducing our Fall Open House! A little taste of what Colony Acres holds for the Fall Season.

Come out for a preview of our new barn, indoor photo ops, farm activities, food samplings, drinks, donuts, and retail items that will be for sale this season!

Feast in the Flowers

Postponed Until 2024

Sadly we will no longer be hosting the annual Feast in the Flowers Farm Dinner this year. 😓 But don’t fear! We plan for it to return in the years to come and have so many new things to bring you this season including food, drinks, and an exciting new retail space! 😄✨
