Harvestville Farm

Harvestville Farm is a fifth-generation farm located in the heart of farm country in rural Southeast Iowa.

Throughout the spring and summer months, the farm features a variety of items ranging from plants, annuals, seeds, fresh garden veggies, local fruits, home and garden décor and hosts a farm-to-table dinner series. New in 2020 will be our biggest sunflower festival to date that will featured over 10 acres of sunflowers to wander through, take that perfect picture and pick your own.

In September and October, 40 acres of pumpkins, squash and gourds turn the farm into a harvest haven along with two large play areas for families of all ages to enjoy, a 10-acre corn maze, wagon rides and special fall events.

In November, explore a winter wonderland that features fresh-cut trees, wreaths, roping, gift items and arrangements up until the Christmas holiday.

Throughout the year, Harvestville Farm serves fresh baked breads, cookies and cobblers, along with a variety of soups, salads, paninis, sandwiches and flatbread pizzas in The Pitchfork Café.
