a real farm experience
unlike any others

We'll take you on a 45 minute hay ride loop around the farm where you will be entranced with our emaculate views of the La Plata Mountains and never ending farm ground. You'll be able to relax on the hay wagons while you learn about our large scale farm and ranch operation. From field crops to row crops to cattle and more, you'll see the farm the way we do while riding equipment we use or have used in the past and enjoy the newest addition to the farm - our play yard! Check out the attractions for what you'll be able to enjoy!

enjoyed by all ages

Getting away from the city and having some peace and quiet is what you're longing for and these tours have been curated to satisfy the entertainment needs of humans of all ages! Whether a grandparent, parent, teenager, preteen, toddler or infant, a farm tour at Jack-A-Lope Acres will hit the spot every time. Come experience all of the facets that Southwestern Colorado has to offer.

active farm equipment & education of the farm

You will travel a 2.5 mile loop around the farm on old hay wagons that were once used to transport hay through fields. We've vamped them up and made benches instead of hay bales (much more skin friendly - picture above is an overflow hayride for fall). Although these rides can be bumpy, they are authentic. You will learn the overall basis of our farm and what, how and why we operate and raise certain crops.

breathtaking views

If you've ever wanted to experience true rural life, now is your chance. We guide you through the quiet countryside, not seen by busy streets. Not only will you experience the most amazing views of the La Plata Mountains and endless farm ground, you will be surrounded by the peace of rural farm life. Not a car to be heard on the road, no horns honking or sirens blaring, just the serene sounds of the breeze in the trees and cattle calling.

Fun for everyone & semi-private

Our farm tours are considered a semi-private event because the play area at the farm is closed to anyone who is not on a tour. There will be a maximum of 120 people per day that visit the farm and you choose when you come and how long you stay. The hayride is scheduled but you have the opportunity to entertain yourselves all day on all of our activities at the farm!
