Spring is officially here! Not that that means much for Colorado, but it?s here! We are busy planting, fixing, planting some more.

Your admission fee includes one trip per person to our fields to pick up to 5 bags of fresh produce per person. We supply the bags. All other activities like the corn maze and huge playground complex are included in the cost of your admission! Most farms charge an admission price and then charge an additional fee to do each activity. Your one time admission here at Miller Farms includes the produce you pick and ALL other activities!!
WHAT PRODUCE WILL I GET TO PICK WHEN I COME TO HARVEST?
Each time you come to harvest you can expect to be harvesting different types of produce. We rotate what we pick each day so that not any one crop will be depleted right away. Crops also vary from season to season and year to year. You can be certain that you?re going to get a great deal for your admission price!
WHEN ARE PUMPKINS READY?
Once the pumpkins are ripe for picking, each person is allowed to pick ONE pumpkin from the fields if they so desire. The pumpkins up front by the house and sales shed are for sale and are not included in the cost of your admission. Ask one of our staff about our GREAT wagon sale!

We have hundreds of wonderful and cool photo opportunities. PLEASE BRING YOUR CAMERAS! Also, we love getting photos from our customers via email, so feel free to send us yours! We will try and get these posted to our web site!
?We are typically open during any weather, but please use your own judgment when coming to harvest in poor weather. We do have a very sandy soil here that dries out quickly.
We grow many varieties of vegetables and are constantly adding new kinds. A combination of sandy soil, sunny days and cool nights gives them the most amazing taste. Try our award winning onions, or our famous Peaches and Cream corn, or the best tasting potatoes in the world. We carry Red, White, Blue, and Yukon Gold.
And, don?t forget Millers? famous watermelons?? you?ll wish these were in season all year long!
