Geisler Farms is an agritourism business on a family farm conveniently located 14 miles northeast of downtown Des Moines. The Geisler family has farmed at the same location east of Ankeny since 1945. In 2005, a corn maze and pumpkins were added to a traditional corn and soybean farm.
Geisler Farms is known for fall fun with the maze, pumpkin sales and related outdoor family activities on the weekends during September and October. Precut Fraser fir Christmas trees grown in Wisconsin are sold from mid-November through mid-December.
Geisler Farms is also known as a wedding venue. Weddings and receptions are hosted from May through August. The two-day rental package includes access to the Red Shed, which has nearly 7,000 square feet and a 300-person capacity. Wedding ceremonies may be held on the 7,000-square-foot outdoor patio. Dressing rooms are available inside the white barn.
