CM Farms :: Worth The Drive From Lafayette To Dry Creek, Louisiana

If you are looking for an easy day trip from Lafayette, look no further than CM Farms in Dry Creek, Louisiana!! Looking for a change in scenery and some adventure, I decided to pack us up (and some necessities) to make the 1 hour and 30 minute drive from Lafayette to CM Farms. We had such a great time enjoying all the festivities they have to offer and making memories along the way. CM Farms offers so many things to do that we easily spent the day at the farm without getting bored.

What to Expect With Kids at CM Farms ::

They are a real working farm, growing strawberries, cantaloupes and watermelons — all while raising cows. We had a good time looking around too! They are open seasonally with 50+ attractions, friendly farm animals, and events. It is located just a little North of Dry Creek, Louisiana.

Opening September 30, 2023

Fall is just around the corner! Pumpkins, 50+ attractions, a 12-acre maze, farm animals, outdoor games, wagon rides, cute photo props and so much more are awaiting. They have something special planned for each weekend.

CM Farms :: Worth The Drive From Lafayette To Dry Creek, LouisianaWe love to get there early and stay late. My daughter and husband are definitely animal lovers. Our favorite part is to first take a photo op then go straight to see all the animals to tell them all good morning!

One activity worth mentioning is the hay ride which takes you through the farm and the other side where you see all the crops growing, possibly even a cow or two sitting under the shade chilling out.

How Much Does It Cost?

They offer a “Farm Pass,” which includes access to all 50+activities. At the gate, it is $22.95 + tax for ages 3 and up (kids 2 and under are free).

Beginning September 18th at 8am, there will be a Flash Sale ONLINE HERE for $13.95 + tax {limited quantities are available}

You can also upgrade to a Super Pass — you can find more details about what it includes HERE.

Items To Pack ::

  • Wipes
  • A sunhat depending what time of year you go
  • Snacks for the car ride
  • A change of clothes for the littles that might get a bit dirty from all the fun rolling around and about.

Shop & Eat ::

Where to start?! We enjoyed browsing for gifts, fudge, jarred goods, roasted nuts, burgers, pizza and seafood. The food is actually pretty yummy and the fudge shop is my daughter’s favorite.

We are definitely looking forward to a trip to pick strawberries when they are in season considering strawberries are a staple in our home. The idea of picking them straight off the farm is something we are definitely looking forward to doing. The last time we went the crops were not ready, giving us a definite incentive to return.

CM Farms was definitely worth the drive from Lafayette and my family will for sure be returning again and again!
