EAGLE, Idaho — Twin Oaks farm is one of the last farms in Eagle and this working farm uses agri-tourism to supplement their farming income while at the same time providing a whole lot of family-friendly fun.

Through out the year Twin Oaks hosts the Tater Dash, a tubing hill around Christmas time and right now children are having a blast at Halloween Land.

The income generated by these community events goes toward supplementing the revenue generated from farming in an effort to keep this land from being turned into another subdivision.

"I'm positive we are the last working farm on Eagle Road and one of the last working farms still in this area altogether," said Jim Reidenbaugh the owner of Twin Oaks. "I should be conflicted because I'm a real estate investor, but it is truly in my heart to preserve this land and keep it this way forever."

That means good news for families as children had a blast playing in the corn maze, checking out the 12 acre pumpkin patch, hanging out with the animals including a special area called bunny hill and taking a ride down one of several big slides.

The farm also gets people away from the grind of city life while providing old fashioned fun that reminds parents of some of the things they enjoyed in their childhood.

"This place is magical," said Melissa Bianci, a mother of two young girls. "The kids are having so much fun and my daughters won't leave the bunny hill."

Halloween Land will be open through Friday, November 1 and although Nyah's Haunted Woods is closed for the season people looking for a scary experience can look forward to a apocalyptic zombie experience on Friday night.
