Splash Day at Christian Way Farm

Splish splash fun day at Christian Way! Saturday, July 13 we’re offering a water day at Christian Way. We’ll have the purple crush giant water slide on-site with large splash pool, bubble stations, kiddie pools and more water fun to keep kids of all ages entertained all day!

This special day is included with regular farm or farm + mini golf combo admission. Learn more about our pricing at https://christianwayfarm.com/pricing/.

Every day is water day on our farm themed mini golf course! Play nine rounds on Splash Day and see if you can keep the ball out of the water features throughout the course. If you can’t, you’ll enjoy that extra splash!

Our usual farm activities will still be going on Splash Day, so join us to spend a relaxing day outdoors. Feed and pet farm animals from corn you grind yourself, take a ride on the lawnmower train, play in the corn truck (it’s the corn equivalent of a giant sandbox!), or simply enjoy the wide open spaces to run and play.

Christian Way Farm and Mini Golf features a playground, Gaga ball, a tricycle arena for friendly competitions (made out of hay!), giant Scrabble & giant Jenga. For the historian or farm equipment aficionado, come learn about equipment that dates back to the early 1900’s.

Have a picnic or enjoy pizza and wings from the Christian Way Cafe. And don’t leave without stopping by the country store for toys and unique gifts. Christian Way Farm is a place to enjoy the outdoors and participate in fun farm activities with the family. We look forward to seeing you!

The Silent Natural Meet & Greet

Come out to Casey Jones Distillery for autographs, film memorabilia for purchase, food, music, games for kids and more! This is a FREE event! Bring your friends to meet the Stars!

Miles Barbee will be on hand to sign autographs and take pics! He played William ‘Dummy’ Hoy in The Silent Natural, a biographical drama about the first deaf Major League Baseball player, filmed across Christian County and other communities in western Kentucky.

Hoy grew up in Houcktown, Ohio. Before he was noticed by a pro scout, he owned a shoe repair shop. Hoy played in the minor leagues for two years before signing with the Washington Senators in 1888. According to the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame, Hoy went on to play for seven teams in his 14-year MLB career and used sign language to communicate with teammates.

Director, writer and producer David Risotto said the story of Dummy Hoy takes place in a small western town during the 1880s.
“It’s a feel good story. It’s about an underdog who fought hard to get to do what he wanted to in life. It’s a hero story,” said Risotto.
