It’s fall y’all! You know what that means – grab your favorite pair of boots out of the closet and make plans to hit up pumpkin patches EVERY weekend. There are plenty of farms in our area to grab a pumpkin, pet a goat, and grab some cider – but you know we prefer those with live LOCAL music! Below we break down our favorites.
Neltner’s Farm has something for every member of your family: horse-drawn wagon rides, model train display, an expansive corn maze, our pick-your-own pumpkin patch, petting zoo, pony rides, homemade food and ice cream, farm shop, crafters, pottery, face-painting, seasonal apples, folk art, live music, a wonderful variety of demonstrations and a barrel train. Oh, and BUY the pickles!
