Welcome to Faranda’s Farm!

We want people all over the world to visit the Laurel Highlands to learn about the joy that comes from Nature. Our Garlic Festival is a Stinkin’ good time with entertainment, a cooking competition and vendors. We offer families an opportunity to bond in nature with our corn maze and flashlight night.
