Ah, Fall is here and we love celebrating this season with little ones. Crunching leaves, baked treats and family outings. What’s not to love? One of our favorite outings this time of year is picking out pumpkins at the local patch and carving them later to leave on the doorstep (or painting, a more kid-friendly alternative).
We’ve compiled a list of some of the hot spots to visit this season with your family. We can’t wait to hear about your adventures!
We go for the apple cider donuts. The pumpkins are an added bonus, ha! Highland Orchards in West Chester has Pick Your Own Pumpkin weekends where you can take a shuttle out to their fields (10AM-4:45PM). While it does cost $6 to take the shuttle to the patch, that is applied to the pumpkin that you choose! While you’re there, make sure to feed the animals on the farm, participate in their ongoing Harvest festivities and burn some energy (you’re welcome parents) on the playground! Don’t forget to take home apple cider from their market!
Milky Way Farm
On specific Pumpkin Harvest weekends, families can gather at Milky Way Farm/Chester Springs Creamery for complimentary hayrides (10AM-5PM) that go to their 7 acre pumpkin patch. Not interested in the hayride? You can take their walking path too! You can pick pumpkins in the patch or purchase in their shop.
Sugartown Pumpkin Patch
From 10:00AM to 6:00PM, you’ll find the Sugartown Pumpkin Patch in Malvern ready for picking. Be sure to check out their hayrides, hay bale maze and more while you’re there and stop into the Country Store for your festive decor and fresh jams and jellies.
Linvilla’s Pumpkinland in Media brings the Fall season alive with life-size scarecrows, toys and local history guides. Indulge in candy and caramel apples while strolling their Jack-O-Lantern Exhibit and make sure to visit the annual Costume Parade!
