Dewberry Farm celebrates the fall season with a cornucopia of autumn-themed youth and adult attractions spread across rich farmland. Tractors carrying visitors in hay wagons bump and roll down to the 8-acre pumpkin patch, where groups can select and purchase a pumpkin or pose for a photo with Cinderella’s out-of-work carriage. An 8-acre corn maze confuses the directionless with a series of word-play puzzles and three miles of paths carved in the shape of a strolling pumpkin, which opens out onto Punkin Hollar’s 500 lit jack-o'-lanterns. This year's corn maze features a tribute to NASA and 50 years of space discovery. Other attractions include the Dewberry barnyard filled with bunnies, a hay mountain and roller slide, and Little Farmersville for young children, as well as the landmark Golden Goat Bridge, where furry beasts bound across a 20-foot suspension bridge in search of treats on child-powered conveyor belts. After a day of animalian activities, farm-goers can wander through the country store, eyeing old-fashioned gifts and farm fare, including Dewberry farm honey and apple enchiladas.
