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. Our festivals aren’t the only time to have fun – we also have private events! Field trips for school kids, Birthday Parties, & Company Outings. We’re excited to see you and hope you enjoy your stay!
