Birthday Parties on the Farm

Thistleberry Farm is a best place in South Bend to host a birthday party. We have plenty of activities to keep the kids busy and plenty of room for them to run off some energy.

  • Reserved picnic area for 2 hours (plus 15 min to setup and 15 minutes to cleanup.)

  • A $25 non-refundable deposit is required when you make the reservations.

We do have various types of food and drinks available in our concessions trailer. If you anticipate ordering food for a large group, it would really help us if you let us know a day ahead of time about how much you will need so we can ensure it will be cooked when you need it. Thanks!
