This Halloween weekend we had a fantastic Pumpkin Patch experience at thesuper friendly Country Adventures farm in Blythewood.
The 22 acres family farm is USDA licensed and very well maintained.
We paid $7 per child and $3 per adult for a tour of all farm animals and petting zoo, a comfortable hayride around the property, small pumpkins and a delicious marshmallow roast.
What kids love to do at the farm
Be a cowboy or a cowgirl. Who can resist riding on a country wagon? Not even Batman!
Take care of the animals. The cute little donkey was an instant hit. Other heart-breakers: Jennie, the fluffy bunny, the pony, the horse, the goats, the turkeys, the sheep and the guinea fowls.
Mine was mesmerized by all the pumpkins. Each child got a small one to take home.
The highlight of the day was the hayride on a scenic country road through the forest, around the farm and with a final stop by a beautiful pond, where we were “greeted” by King Goose.
We roasted marshmallows, made yummy s’mores and relaxed at the picnic tables.
