Couldn't ask for a finer experience

Perfect experience for my family. Perfect location, size and feel. Feels like home from the moment you step in. Many things for kids to do and see. Their favorite was all the stray cats jumping on their laps by the front porch. Being a working farm we got to get eggs from the hen house, ride a pony, feed the goats and see the cows. We also enjoyed the hayride through the covered bridge and the "train cars" pulled by a 4-wheeler. Also have a golf cart, basketball hoop, bikes to use and water activities.


Always a great time at Rocky Acres- year after year!

A must for a family farm visit. It will likely become an annual or bi annual trip. All the activities included and breakfast in the morning make the pricing appropriate. Pony rides, tractor ride, hay ride, cow milking, calf feeding, chicken egg collecting, bike riding, basketball, swings, stream, mountain climbing, and game room. Kids entertained for hours on end!

We have been going to Rocky Acre since our son was 2. The Benner family are warm and welcoming making you feel like a part of the family. I am so happy that time at this very special farm will be a childhood memory for our son.


5th time and won't be our last!

My kids have been all over the country...Hawaii (twice), New York, San Francisco, Disney, and countless other places. The number one place they always want to re-visit is Rocky Acre. There is just something special about it. It's relaxing and fun. There are animals. The breakfast is amazing. But it's more than that, and I'm not even sure what that is. Just that we will return, again and again.


Outstanding In Every Way!

Rocky Acre is a slice of heaven! It's a great place to take the extended family for a few days. The kids have a great time with all the kid-friendly activities, they learn about farm life, they interact with cows, goats, a pony and kittens, and can enjoy free play in the fresh air. Adults also have a great time--of course, they enjoy watching the kids have a great time, but this is a place to unwind, relax, swing on the porch, visit with friends if you take more than one room, and enjoy Amish country. There is so much to do that you can't do it all in one visit...so you make choices, and can come back again and again. Their rooms are pristine, with private baths, and the hosts will do whatever it takes to make you happy..what more can you ask?? Oh, and did I mention the huge, fresh farmer's breakfast? Better come hungry..it's plentiful and delicious! My family has visited many times, and this time we were lucky enough to be there when a cow was giving birth, which was amazing! If you are considering Rocky Acre for your next vacation, don't walk...run! You will not be disappointed!


Best Vacation Ever!

The hosts were amazing and loving people. We had so much fun on the dairy farm that no one in our family wanted to leave. We saw baby calves born and then got to bottle feed them the next day. We stayed right in the middle of Amish country. It was absolutely breathtaking. We have already rebooked for next year.
