IMPORTANT NEWS FOR ALL OUR BELOVED PATRONS:
It is with great sadness we are announcing that after 10 years, we are permanently closing the gates of Green Hand Farm Park. It has been a very difficult year for us. After my accident at the farm last October, I was left paralyzed from the waist down but had planned to continue operation of the Farm Park this fall. Unfortunately, the owners of the property have decided to sell the land and have discontinued the lease agreement for the property.
It has been difficult to accept that we will not be able to continue operations of this business in which we have invested so much love. Green Hand Farm Park has been the most fun project of my life. Seeing the thousands of patrons enjoying their families and friends here year after year has made my heart swell with pride and joy. We have enjoyed watching children and adults laugh and smile as they bumped along on our barrel trains, jumped around on our giant bounce pillow, shot at zombies, and enjoyed our many other rides and attractions. We've treasured watching the delight of families as they pick the perfect pumpkin from the pumpkin patch. We enjoyed all the school groups, church groups, scout groups, and families that we've had the pleasure of meeting.
We are appreciative to all who have made these past 10 years possible. In addition to our patrons, we've also a had a wonderful group of staff throughout the years, a creative team that has painted our wonderful themed hay bales each year and managed our marketing, and The Maize network of farmers we've been a part of the last several years.
So my friends, it is with great remorse and sorrow that my wife and I must say goodbye. You all were the best guests anyone could ask for and we shall truly miss each and every one of you. May God bless you all as he has blessed me all these years.
David and Patricia Hand
