Eckert’s Grafton Farm offers pick-your-own crops, a general country store, and kids’ activities in a rustic, relaxing, rural setting. Situated atop the Mississippi River Bluffs, near the Great River Road, the Grafton farm opens in the summer and closes at the end of October. No admission into the farm. Pick-your-own produce is priced by the pound.

Grafton’s General Store offers Eckert’s homegrown produce, bakery treats, cider (when available) as well as other favorites, including apple and pumpkin butter, Amish salsa, honey, jams, preserves, and Eckert’s salad dressings.


During apple and pumpkin seasons in September and October, kids activities on Saturdays and Sundays* include:

  • Carnival rides – all carnival rides & inflatables require ride tickets which can be purchased at the Fun Korral gate. Tickets are $2 each or 6 for $10.
  • Petting farm – we have feed machines available that take quarters
  • Pony and camel rides – $6 each
  • Push pedal trikes
  • Sand boxes
  • Miniature golf

*There are no carnival or pony and camel rides Monday through Friday unless a festival is taking place on one of those days. All attractions are subject to weather conditions and may be cancelled without notice.

Every Saturday & Sunday beginning September 24-October 30, Kerry Steinmann will perform free live music from 10am - 5pm.
