Fall: a season loved by so many. Fall boasts mild weather and fun outdoor activities with your favorite someone(s). If you love fall, you love experiencing all of the wonderful activities it brings with it… visits to a local pumpkin patch, sipping hot beverages on cool days, hay rack rides, jumping in big piles of leaves, roasting marshmallows on a bonfire, camping, the smell of mums…
Feeling excited to celebrate fall with a trip to a local patch or orchard?! Here are some favorites I have come across:
First, consider supporting a company that supports your station. Check out North River Adventures! It’s a great destination for fun for all ages… multiple corn mazes so everyone in the family can participate, farm animals to pet – including fainting goats, tractor rides, a cafe with some of your favorite fall treats, and a gigantic jumping pillow (which is not just for the kids 😉 ). An added perk? They are becoming more and more well-known but, in the meantime, we get to enjoy all the fun without the lines and crowds. My family and I are really looking forward to our second-annual visit to the farm!
Here are a couple of the very well-known patches (but be prepared for lines!):
And here’s a new one that I came across just this year – Wills Family Orchard. There is no admission fee. They even have Apple & Pumpkin Fest weekends through the fall, which includes barbecue for purchase! I cannot wait to head out for a visit to hand-pick organic apples and purchase some organic apple butter, applesauce, and cider from a local farm!
