Some of my favorite fall activities on the local farm scene.
The farms in this area have created many opportunities for people to enjoy the properties, pick some fruit, go on hayrides or get lost in a corn maze.
You can’t go wrong picking these events. There’s something to do most weekends.
Clark’s is always open. They even have dinosaurs, I hear, to go along with the Enchanted Forest attractions in the pine tree trails. So many things to do there, and really close to town.
Larriland is open for pick your own, has a straw maze for the little ones, and has hayrides to the pumpkin patch.
Gaver Farm just west of Mt. Airy is already open with their corn maze.
Starting next week.
Mullinix Maze opens next Friday the 25th with their huge corn maze, out by Western Regional Park.
Farm Heritage Days at the Farm Museum across from the Fairgrounds is next weekend.
Sharp’s Farm opens next weekend, too.
TLV Tree Farm in Glenelg has something different every weekend out at the farm.
Baugher’s in Westminster has their fall festival events every weekend in October, as well.
Good to see so many choices to get out, pick apples or pumpkins, go on hayrides, check out a petting zoo, or two, or three.
Support our local farms, who offer much more than the farmer’s markets. These agritourism events help their bottom line, and keep them healthy to be there every year, giving us fresh fruit and vegetables.
