We took our entire group out to Agua Linda Farms, Easter, 2013 and at the time it cost us $25/adult and $18/children so you'd expect a little more than a tire swing, a few farm animals to pet, a tractor that pulls you around a large dirt lot, and a bunch of eggs thrown on the ground (not hidden). But believe it or not, that's all you get. Oh, except for lunch. By the time we got done with the tractor ride, all of the good food was gone and all they had was stale bread and sandwiches, and some old fruit. NO EXAGERATION!!!! They didn't have enough food for everybody. When we tried to complain, the lady said, "Sorry, no refunds!" It was THE most disappointing time we've ever spent. SAVE YOUR MONEY!! Save a long trip out to Amado! Hide eggs in your back yard. I guarantee you, it'll be 100 times more enjoyable.

This quaint dessert farm presented a whimsical setting for a Halloween / fall event. We took our 4-year old, and it was absolutely perfect. The farm sits in a little valley in the dessert and is filled with mesquite trees and palo verdes. In the distance you can see the jagged ridges of the Santa Rita Mountains.

The $5 entrance fee included a haystack maze perfect for little ones, handful of John Deere branded trikes, photo op wooden cut-out with a John Deere tractor, choice of tree swings, an open-air bouncy house, a small array of goats, sheep and bull, and a hay ride through the field dotted with pumpkins that had been placed there earlier in the day. For an additional $5 you could either ride the miniature ponies in a circle or more fascinatingly get on a little buggie with a a driver and get pulled around by a prancing miniature horse. This is of course what our little one did.

And the main attraction was after the sun set, they showed a movie. They had hay bales set up for seats under the open sky or a few tables under a shelter. The night we were there they had 'Charlie Brown's Great Pumpkin' and a bonus track of 'Snoopy and the Magic Show'.

For $1 we purchased a s'mores kit. The bag had 2 marshmallows, 2 decent squares of chocolate and 2 graham crackers. Behind all the bales they set up a large bonfire where you could roast your marshmallow on a mesquite tree branch they managed to whittle up just in time.

There was other food for purchase from the basic grill and of course, the farm stand was open with a few things and baked goods. Pumpkin pie!

We had such a wonderful time. I could barely tear my son away from the large tractor tire swing. And the walk back to the car under a big black sky filled with stars and a clear view of the Milky Way was the icing on the cake.

We took a school field trip and the kids had a blast. They loved the wagon ride and picking their own pumpkins from the pumpkin patch. Everyone here was so nice. The older kids got a kick out of the maze. Beware, they like to hide in here, so be sure to count your kids before you leave. ;)
