Built to Help Farms Succeed
This year, we sought to make it even simpler for our 300+ farm clients to drive revenue from their events and make the most of their busiest season. Our partnership with Maize allowed us to offer better prices for farms and release a ton of new features that helped our farm clients sell over a million tickets in October.
Vala’s Pumpkin Patch and Apple Orchard in Gretna, Nebraska used SimpleTix to sell tens of thousands of tickets this year. Here’s how they took full advantage of the SimpleTix platform.
- Multiple ticket types
Vala’s sold general admission tickets, season passes, and reservations for campfires and party barns. Vala’s created even more ticket options according to the size of campfire or party barn. With SimpleTix’s peak/off-peak feature, Vala’s could disallow off-peak tickets on its most valuable days of operation.

- Pre-sold concessions and catering
Vala’s tied its concessions sales into the ticketing process. Customers could pre-order everything from cider to pie to party platters when they bought their ticket, then use their digital ticket to redeem their concessions once they arrived on the farm. This helped Vala’s anticipate how much to prepare and keep the lines moving because staff didn’t have to handle as much cash.

- Specialized upsells
Vala’s created a specific set of higher-value upsells for parties who reserved the highest tier of bonfire or party barn. When a customer added a high-tier ticket to their cart, they were served this premium upsell list within the SimpleTix purchase process. Once they checked in at Vala’s, the staff could see their pre-ordered upsells and deliver them promptly.

- Keeping the lines moving
When tickets are bought in a group, SimpleTix gives Vala’s staff the option to check in everyone on the order with just one ticket scan. This prevented a lot of wallet-wrangling and phone fumbling at the gate.
