The Chanhassen City Council unanimously approved measures to allow the Degler Farm, off of Audubon Road, to expand its agricultural entertainment offerings.
Beginning in fall 2019, the Degler Farm invited the public to “Experience the Farm” on weekends, with attractions that included corn mazes and hayrides. With new changes to the city code, the farm will be able to provide more activities in the future.
The item was initially brought in front of the council at its July 26 meeting.
Todd Degler approached the city with interest in using the property, Degler Farm, owned by Gayle Degler, a Carver County commissioner and located at 9111 Audubon Road. Degler Farm staff worked with city staff to make changes to the city code.
According to Todd Degler, one of the goals of the farm is to educate the community. They want to offer agricultural entertainment because it is fun, but also because they want to share the outdoors with the public, he said.
“We want to provide a more family oriented experience,” Degler said.
