Joyer Barnyard is open in conjunction with Joyer Adventure Farm. We are hosting guests 6 days a week from 10 am to 6 pm, closed on Tuesday. All tickets are sold online to reserve your spot. We have had many times slots sell out this season. Joyer Adventure Farm combines our popular Joyer Barnyard with Fall Fun’s Maze Area activities.
We hope everyone is taking the necessary precautions to keep each other safe.
We will continue the following practices for visiting Waldoch Farm and Garden Center:
- Carts will be fully sanitized each day.
- Additional sanitizing supplies will be provided for carts.
- Physical distancing should be maintained between guests and staff.
- Credit card transactions are encouraged, extra precautions will be taken at check out.
- Hands washing stations will be available.
A few things working the land has taught us are:
- What a difference a year can make
- The sun will come up tomorrow
- If it moves, it breaks
- Success takes grit
- and you cannot harvest what you don't plant.
Just a little list of farm-isms and life lessons that have helped us through more than 100 years of farming with joy in our hearts for the earth, family, and rewarding challenges.
Joyer Barnyard is open as Joyer Adventure Farm. Tickets are only sold online we are using timed ticketing. We have been selling out of popular entrance times. This will combine our popular Joyer Barnyard with Fall Fun’s Maze Area activities!
Joy in the garden,
Mary, Kathy, Andrew, and Doug and the whole Waldoch Farm Family
A Growing Experience Since 1916
Waldoch Farm is a family run Garden Center providing top-quality plants, garden accessories, produce and fall fun to Lino Lakes and the surrounding communities. We are located 20 minutes north of Minneapolis / St. Paul.
Our Mission: To be the community's connection to all things garden. Our wish is to inspire and cultivate a desire to grow things that make our corner of the world beautiful and dining tables delicious.
We offer a family friendly environment, come for an hour or spend the day. You can get a glimpse of farm animals at the adjoining barnyard, too!
