Jack-o'-lanterns grimace because their natural phosphorescence attracts angry, adrenaline-filled teenagers with a fondness for combat boots. Show your support for this much-maligned gourd with today's Groupon: for $10, you get two tickets to the pumpkin patch and more at Bennett Farms. The 30-acre family-fun zone is located in Heflin, Alabama, plotted halfway between Birmingham and Atlanta on 1-20. Bennett welcomes guests each Thursday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sundays from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Today's Groupon expires on October 21, 2010, so be sure to use it while it's still in season.

Get a refreshing fix of fresh air this autumn by visiting the scenic, family-run confines of Bennett Farms, an expansive outdoor oasis that's ideal for wholesome seasonal fun. Today's Groupon gets you two all-inclusive passes, granting you and a wise companion access to everything Bennett Farms has to offer. Double knot your sneakerlaces and head to the pumpkin patch for an afternoon of thorough squash scouting. Although searching for hearty pumpkins on Craigslist yields sparse, picked-over results this time of year, Bennett boasts more than 30 acres of raring-to-go gourds along with other festive decorations, such as cornstalks, sunflowers, mums, hay bales, and ghosts, whose neutral hue complements any décor. If you need to rest your feet, climb aboard a cozy hay chariot for a relaxing roundabout across the farm, or cuddle up for a nap in Bennett Farms' corn crib. Before you leave, stop by the petting farm to receive a four-hooved back massage.

Bennett Farms

If you plant it, they will come. The words rang in Jim Bennett’s ears as he shot awake in September 2009. Jim had dreamed of taking his daughter to a pumpkin patch, and when he awoke that night he scribbled plans to bring that dream to life. Over the next year, Jim and his crew hand planted pumpkin seeds on the fourth-generation Bennett Farm to prepare it for a fate quite different than its 60 years as a cattle farm without a single crop grown on it.

These days, pumpkins and gourds wait on the vine in three patches as hayrides pass by daily. At the petting farm, youngsters interact with sheep, miniature horses, and miniature-miniature horses, which mice rode in the old west. Kids can also navigate a hay-bale maze, frolic in the corn crib, and race down a 36-inch, 20-foot-long pipe slide.

Chefs in the cook house craft teacakes, pork skins, and apple pies with a wood-burning stove and wash pots hanging over an open fire. In the sorghum mill, workers transform farm-grown cane syrup, which the Bennetts sell in their country store alongside handmade soap and honey from local vendors.

Customer Reviews

It's just great. Everyone is so friendly and they continue to add and improve since they opened. A fun experience for little kids!

We went on a Thursday because our daughter is not quite two and we knew it would be less crowded and easier for us. I'm sure that on the weekend there is a lot going on there since they have live music and other things so I can't say what that is like, but we loved it the Thursday afternoon we went. It was quiet and peaceful and our daughter loved it. She loved the slide and the corn crib and of course the petting zoo. For her age, we thought it was wonderful and we bought some beautiful mums from there as well.
