It all began in 1960 when the Lybbert's were asked if they would be willing to host a small church fundraiser using an old wagon and a team of horses that were out in the pasture. We have seen so many changes in the South Bay since we hosted our first event all those years ago.  From the simple and humble beginnings of our first "hayride party" of 25 people to now here 60 years later, hosting weddings and corporate events in excess of 5,000 guests.  
None of this would have been possible without our incredible staff, whom are like family to us.  They look forward to coming back each summer, and for a few months of the year, being part of this wild, crazy, fun thing we do.  
We joke that working here is like the song Hotel California...you can check out but you can never leave!   
Most of our crew has been with us for 10 to 20 years, while some have been coming back each season for over 40 years. 
Our family is so truly honored and blessed to be able to continue this three generation strong tradition.
Enjoy live bands, stage shows, face painting, arts & crafts, clowns, inflatables, petting zoo, pony rides, horse-drawn hayrides, volleyball, softball, bocce ball, horseshoes and acres lawn. Or... if you feel like just being lazy, bring a blanket  and relax under a shady tree on the lawn.
