YesterLand Farm in Canton, TX is a 40+ acre area with nostalgic amusement park rides, a petting zoo, a corn maze in the fall, and choose and cut your own Christmas tree farm in the winter. Family owned and operated, your family will love making a trip to Yesterland Farm in East Texas a yearly tradition!
I can’t believe it has taken me a full year to post about our trip to YesterLand Farm in Canton, TX. In fact, since our visit last fall, a major tornado tore through Canton and actually damaged parts of Yesterland Farm as well. (If you saw the news coverage of the April 2017 Canton tornados: YesterLand Farm is located near the Dodge dealership on I20 that suffered significant damage.) My pictures may be outdated as I’m not sure what all was restored or replaced. I do know that they are back up and running, and ready for your visit!
Everything at YesterLand farms was adorable and perfectly landscaped. Even the “Out House.”
We went with Sophia’s pre-school class on a field trip when we visited, which I believe was outside of their normal operating hours for the public because it wasn’t crowded at all. Unfortunately, because we stayed with the group, we didn’t branch off and see everything that YesterLand Farm had to offer. I am excited to go back and try out their food offerings– funnel cakes, fresh fudge, and hand-dipped corny dogs… yes, please.
We ran out of time and didn’t get a chance to run through the famous YesterLand Farm corn maze either! At the time, I didn’t realize what a production their corn maze is. Check out this recent video from the WFFA drone that shows the full maze from overhead and gives more detail of how it comes to be.
The kids all loved the petting zoo and seeing the variety of animals; including pigs, goats, chickens, ponies, and more. Apparently next spring they are opening “Bunnyville” at Yesterland Farm. “Watch as the bunnies hop to and fro around town, stopping in the Hare Salon, having breakfast at iHop, or checking into the Hoppin’ Hotel!”
The kids loved the playground area. What a genius idea. Too often when we go to an all-day event like this the kids are itching to run around and burn off some energy by lunch time, whereas the parents are ready to sit down and take a breather. Let them swing and slide and dig in the dirt while you sit under a shade tree with a turkey leg for a minute or two.
All in all, the kids had a blast and I would definitely go back. Located just outside of the Dallas-Fort Worth area and minutes away from Canton’s First Monday Trade Days, you can tell that the owners of YesterLand Farm (a retired career firefighter and his wife… shoutout!) take pride in providing this wholesome, family fun attraction to the East Texas area.
