I need ideas for my sons 5th birthday party. We live on 19 acres. I thought of doing a hayride, and having a weenie and marshmallow roast over a fire, but I need some more ideas! Thanks in advance.

How about bobbing for apples as one of the games?
You could also purchase some of those little balsa wood gliders as favors and let them spend the afternoon throwing them around. I did that once and it was the best party we ever had.
This sounds like a lot of fun for a little kid and since it's outside it shouldn't cost a lot of money. Send us some pics when it's over.
You could have the kids look for hidden treasure. Some fun gift for boy and girl and if they find it, they keep it, or something that is to be shared with all the kids once found. A few clues and they're off on the hunt.
That's alot of land! How about a big BBQ / pot luck with games for the kids? Even some games for the adults could be fun (and you have all those extra adults around if you need a hand :)
foot races were always fun when we were kids (back in the 60s). A big pinata hanging from a tree is a blast too. How about a baseball game? let em run for sure - kids today never seem to have to run and stretch their legs - relay races, sack races, 3 legged races are a BLAST!
Oh i forgot wheelbarrow races!!!!!! SOOOOOOOOO much fun and the pictures would be hilarious!
Set some boundaries as to where the kids can wander-that's a BIG piece of property. Any sort of games and races, a scavenger hunt (use pics rather than words on the list as most of these kids won't be readers or assign an adult or older READER to each kid team. List nature things like the biggest pinecone, empty birds nest, snail shell, etc
