Reserve Harvest Hall meeting room which holds 100 people for a seated event and 200 for a standing function. The restored Kinder family farmhouse has returned to a condition similar to when it was built in 1925.
 
Kinder Farm Park offers picnic tables and grills located throughout the park, two large outdoor pavilions available for rental, and a large playground and tot-lot ideal for children of all ages. The park has a 2.8 mile paved perimeter trail and several miles of natural trails.
