Funny Farm

The attraction is closed, but people had been able to see a lot of the large items from the roadway. As of late 2022, those items were sold at auction. The Funny Farm land is now vacant.

The Fun Farm

A roadside attraction featuring a costume shop, a vintage clothing, jewelry, book store, and grounds with a self-guided tour of recycled objects made into whimsical artwork.

Our visits to the Fun Farm span several years. We must admit between 2005 and 2010 the Farm was showing its wear. However, each time we came away glad we had visited and with a great stash of new costume jewelry as found in the gift shop. Our visit in July 2011 showed the big barn open for the first time with many other nostalgic items for sale. While the Love Pond could use a good scrubbing, the area was a bit more tidy than the year before. Still worth the trip.

Funny Farm

The Bend Funny Farm is open again, although not in the best of repair at the moment. I visited it just a couple weeks ago. The weather has been bad, so many items were stuffed inside the barn and impossible to see, but the man at the desk claimed that he would be cleaning up the farm again for summer.
