The harvest season conjures countless memories—the crunch of fallen leaves, the smell of pumpkin pie, and the melodious sound of a scarecrow belting out the blues. Summon seasonal feelings with this Groupon.

Priddy Farms welcomes families to stroll through its 23 acres of farmland to enjoy picnic lunches, pick pumpkins, cut Christmas trees, bask in autumn breezes, or stroll through winter wonderlands. From mid-September through October, leisurely hayrides escort visitors to the farm's pumpkin patch. At the play area, children can ride on a barrel train, climb aboard Noah's Ark, swing on tire swings, or run around the open area. Families can bring flashlights to explore the "Flashlight Pumpkin Patch" at night, possibly spotting deer, foxes, or farm owls.
From mid-November through December, the farm's selection of pre-cut North Carolina fraser firs take front-and-center, ready to fill a home with Christmas cheer. Families can also walk through a forest of trees and cut their own Virginia pine, white pine, or leyland cypress growing right on site. Additionally, rings of fresh-scented wreaths and Christmas garland are available for purchase, while parents capture memories of holiday traditions with plenty of picture taking.
