Our mission is to provide our guests a unique, entertaining way to connect with family, friends, and rural Wisconsin, and to provide a sustainable way of life for our farm family and local community.
The home of the Treinen Farm Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch is a real 200-acre farm. It has been in the Treinen family for nearly a century. Alan is the eighth of ten children, and the third generation of Treinens to farm this land.
Alan grows hay, soybeans, corn, and pumpkins, and he cuts and tends the corn mazes. He breeds and trains the iconic Treinen Farm Belgian and Percheron draft horses. He maintains the farm and its equipment. He designs, builds, and maintains the all of the attractions that go along with our corn maze. He’s a busy guy all year round.
Angie (Lathrop) Treinen is the corn maze designer. She handles the marketing, social media (see us on Facebook) and day-to-day running of the business. She has several novels in the works (see her author blog, Rich Thicket of Reality.) In her spare time, she is a small animal veterinarian known as Angela Lathrop DVM.
Sons Thomas and Patrick help with the fall maze and pumpkin patch enterprise when they’re not busy with schoolwork and sports.
Yes, in 2020. In order to control the number of visitors to the farm at any given time, we are requiring reservations for entry times and advance purchase of tickets.
Online ticket purchases require a credit card. At the farm, we are primarily cashless for quicker, contactless checkouts with cards and mobile devices. There will be farm locations that do accept cash if necessary.
Sorry, personal checks are not accepted, although we can take business and school checks.
Sorry, no non-human animals (except for service animals) may accompany you on your visit. It’s a liability thing; trust us, we do actually love dogs just as much as we love people (okay, maybe a little more…)
Sorry — corn, hay, and fire do not play well together. The Treinen Farm is a non-smoking, non-vaping, fresh country air kind of place.
The Farm Fables Pumpkin Patch is an easy 2 minute walk just past the Molehill Mountain playground area.
The Upper Pumpkin Patch is about a 4 minute walk along the pond.
The Main Pumpkin Patch (on the far side of the pond) is a 6 minute walk.
You can find pre-picked pumpkins for sale in the farmyard as well.
Pumpkins are $3 to $10, with the average carving size being $7. Even the really large pumpkins are only $10. Baby pumpkins (Jack B Littles and Baby Boos) and gourds are $1. Save by purchasing a pumpkin voucher at the time of ticket purchase.
Yes, but let us know in advance so we can protect picnic tables with newspaper and make sure you have a trash barrel handy.
It depends on the wheelchair. Most surfaces at the farm are flat, and are either gravel, grass, or mulch. The maze is hard-packed dirt, which can get slippery when wet. The ramp to the tunnel is gravel and is sloped.
