Month of October
If you’re looking to get outside the city a bit and experience a little more of the country feel this fall, look no further than Judd’s Pumpkin Patch. Reviewers say they make it an annual visit and its easy to see why with all they have to offer at Judd’s. Starting October 1st, they opened their farm to the public and definitely feature more that just the pumpkin patch. However, the pumpkin patch is nothing to scoff at – with over 2.5 acres of space, you can find many different varieties of pumpkin and even pick yours right off of the vine. That is definitely a unique experience when it comes to pumpkin patch picking.
Other attractions at the farm are their wagon rides – 30 minute tours around the area, including their hay fields, back-country roads, neighboring farms, as well as all the natural beauty along the way. They also feature a farm petting zoo where you can meet pigs, bunnies, mini horse, goats, and more.
October 8 – October 29
Located less than 10 minutes from WillowWind RV Park is one of the most exciting attractions for the fall (and spooky) season. At Western Legacy Farm & Ranch, you can join the Headless Horseman at their 7th Annual Sleepy Hollow Halloween. Some of the activities you can expect on the farm include the petting zoo, hayrides, their corn maze, tractor trike races and much more. The Sleepy Hollow activities include a pumpkin slingshot, horse rides, and even a zip-line you could take a turn on if you’re feeling adventurous. One great aspect about this location is the bakery on site. You can munch on some tasty sweets or savory chili during the fall festivities as well.
