Fall Fun on the Farm

By Kimmi Devaney

Now that summer is officially over, it’s time to put on a few more layers and find some outdoor family activities. Most of my favorite fall activities involve visiting farms. This time of year, several farms open their doors to the public for agritourism activities. Corn mazes, pumpkin patches, hay rides, kiddie games, animals—you name it, they have it. If you didn’t grow up on a farm, you definitely need to add this to your to-do list this month!

There is literally something for everyone. The kids will love visiting the baby animals, while you can learn more about agriculture and food and the great people who work hard to produce it.

Many of these farms also have a pumpkin patch. Halloween is just around the corner, so you may want to stock up now.

The corn maze is my favorite. My Dairy Princess advisor back home has one and it is always a blast. Check out the photo of a few of my fellow Dairy Princesses and me from the corn maze a few years ago. We had a great time navigating the maze and you will too!

The memories you will create with your family during your farm visit are priceless. And don’t forget about those Christmas card photos…this is the PERFECT photo op!

Here are two Indiana dairies worth checking out this fall:

Enjoy your farm visit, and don’t forget your camera!
