It’s all here at Bonnybrook Farms, located just 20 minutes east of Kings Island in southeastern Warren County. Along with Chuck Wagon Dinner Rides, summer also brings Corporate Picnics and Special Events and Motor Coach Tours and Convention Groups. Experience great family fun during Fall Farm Days with Adventure Hayrides, “Pick Your Own” Pumpkin Patch, Crazed Corn Maze, Giant Slingshots, Clodhopper Golf, Pony Rides, Petting Animals and Birthday Parties. After dark our Lantern Light Nights are an adventure back to a time when only lanterns lit the way! School Field Trips in May, September and October are teacher favorites.
Ah…The farm life
A beautiful 350 acre working farm with fresh air, room to roam and run, fishing ponds, woodlands, tree farm, hay fields, grain fields, pumpkin fields, Todd Fork (the biggest creek you’ve ever seen), an old stone wagon road, white-tailed deer, wild turkeys, foxes, otters, coyotes and other wildlife. You can watch the sun come up every morning, go down at night and see every star in the sky. Oh, and the moon! And don’t forget the space station.
A day in the country is worth a month in town!
Our horses, ponies, donkeys, sheep, goats and chickens have always been a big part of Bonnybrook Farms. Elmer, Violet, Stuart Little, Gertrude, Annabelle, Lulu, Tubby, Princess Petunia, Jack in the Box and all the others, aren’t just farm animals…they’re part of the family.
There is ample proof of those gone before us evidenced in the ruins of a pioneer home, root cellar and corn crib along a deserted stone wagon road, a log cabin site and hand dug well situated deep in the woods, and an abandoned leg of the Cincinnati, Wilmington & Zanesville Railroad (or, as the locals called it, the “Sheepskin Line”) that traverses the farm. The valley of Todd Fork Creek is well known to have been a favorite hunting ground of the Shawnee Indians.
The Todd’s Fork and Bull Skin Traces were major native American trails used by Tecumseh, Daniel Boone, Simon Kenton and the first white settlers. Todd’s Fork Trace connected with the Bull Skin Trace at Clarksville which led from the Ohio River to a French Trading Fort in Detroit, Michigan and used during the war of 1812 to transport supplies and troops from the Ohio River to the Great Lakes area. It was also part of the Underground Railroad System.
