Janie and Milt Corley were all smiles recently as they opened Christian Way Farm & Mini Golf for its 20th season.
“This is our 19th year, but it's actually our 20th season,” Janie Corley said. “Next year we will celebrate the 20th anniversary of having guests on the farm.
“We've never had a little pig and a calf that would take a bottle before, but this year we do, and people are very excited about that. Also new this year, we are putting a little plaque with historical information on all the equipment that we have sitting around on the farm.”
Corley says people always asked her about the ages, uses, and names of the different types of equipment, so this will bring an additional educational element to the farm.
“So, in addition to all the food, animals, and golf, now there is a little history for everyone,” Corley said. “As the season progresses we will have more historical signs and old photos to show where the farm has come from. Starting in May, we will be bringing back our scavenger hunt. It's just a fun way to find things you might not have seen before.
“And, on Fathers Day weekend, we are going to do a family camp-out. We encourage families to bring tents, RV's or whatever. We think that will be a great weekend for a family camping event.”
Corley wants to let everyone know that during the summer season, nights are a great time to come to the farm. “It's so much fun when the sun and the temperature goes down,” Corley said. “And, of course, the golf course is all lit up.”
