This weekend, I visited a local pumpkin patch, just a few miles away! I’ve never really been to onesince I usually just pick up my pumpkin at the nearest grocery store. But after going to this farm, and doing all the fun things we did, I’ll never just be “picking up a pumpkin real quick”.
While searching up a few farms online (I mean I had absolutely no idea where one was), I did find that a few different farms had different things to offer such as a corn maze, a haunted corn maze, a petting farm, a hay ride, a pumpkin patch, a place for the kids, and a store to buy other things. The farm with the haunted corn maze was almost thirty minutes away.
(But I still really want to go!)
On arrival at the farm, we had to buy wrist bands, that basically let the workers there know what package of activities we bought, and what we were allowed to do.
First thing we did was hope on the hay ride, which wasn’t too long, but it was still nice because it took us all around the farm, and it was pretty chilly out. After about ten or fifteen minutes it took us to the corn maze, where inside we had to find the meaning of nine hieroglyphics, which were each placed throughout this HUGE corn maze!
Since the farm was closing at six, and we got there at five we did have to a bit of hurry, so right after the corn maze, we headed to the pumpkin patch, and choose our pumpkins. In the end we bought two big pumpkins, and two small ones, and only payed around 11 dollars.
This was the first year of going to a farm and doing things like this, but I hope to do it every year from now on. It is so much fun, for anyone of any age, and there is so much to do!
