Attention to detail sets Neltner’s apart!

There are cute photo opportunities around every corner; I love looking back at old pictures of my boys posing year after year on the piggy barrel. It is so fun to watch them change every year as they grow bigger and the pig stays the same. Another standout is the super cute train display. My boys ran in circles as they followed Thomas around the tracks. My youngest was simply mesmerized by the trains; it proved to be a difficult task to pry him away! Thankfully, the brand new corn pit is nearby. This LARGE corn pit is filled with plenty of buckets, scoops and trucks; all 3 of my boys played happily for an eternity. The new toddler corn maze was a big hit for my little ones. The path was wide and smooth enough for a stroller and I didn’t have to worry about my kids getting lost because there is only one way out.
