The Rock Ranch is a 1,250-acre working cattle ranch owned by S. Truett Cathy, founder of Chick-fil-A. The ranch is dedicated to providing wholesome family entertainment in an agricultural setting.

We offer events, by reservation, that include educational field trips in the spring, summer and fall, catered corporate events and family days, and camping in our Conestoga wagon campground. Our public events include Celebrate America in June and Fall Family Fun Days; a series of themed events on Saturdays from September to November. Themed weekends include an arts and crafts festival, bluegrass festival, Christian music concert, hot air balloon rally, and much more.

Attractions at The Rock Ranch include locomotive train rides, hay rides, pony rides, the pumpkin cannon, corn cannons, pig racing, the giant jumping pillow, a corn maze, paddle boats, pedal carts, fishing, a petting zoo, zip lines and more.

While you're here, check out our All-Natural Produce Stand; seasonal fruits and vegetables; and our all-natural, grass-fed, grain-finished beef. Freshness never tasted so good.
