Hayride Driver 

About the Organization Wickham Farms is a family-owned Farm that started as a roadside stand more than 30 years ago and has grown to be a premier location in Western NY for families to immerse themselves in our flower festivals, on farm fun and activities, and enjoy a full fall day of apple and pumpkin picking, and of course the classic cider donut. As we have grown, we feel it is important to always stay true to our agricultural roots while providing the best possible experience for our guests and team members alike. Our mission is to make our working farm a place where guests of all ages can enjoy fun and interactive farm activities, while creating lasting memories together.
