Autumn is the only season where pumpkins are judged by their personality as well as their performance in the swimsuit competition. Get to know fall's finest with today's Groupon to Bennett Farms in Heflin. Choose between the following options:

  • For $10, you get admission for two adults or children (up to a $20 value).
  • For $20, you get admission for four adults or children (up to a $40 value).

Admission for adults is a $5 value, and admission for children is a $10 value.

Families stream onto Bennett Farms' rolling fields, owned and run by four generations of the Bennett family, where flame-edged foliage and clusters of bulbous orange pumpkins reverberate with the noises of jovial activity. Autumn revelers of all ages partake in farm activities included with admission, and live bluegrass tunes twang through the crisp air on Saturdays. Youngsters dive into a sea of dry whole-kernel corn in the corncrib or snuggle up to doe-eyed livestock in a petting farm, where furry goats and miniature horses pontificate on agricultural philosophy to educate kids on farm life.

Hayrides prop passengers up on shaggy golden upholstery, tugging trailers alongside the hand-planted pumpkin patch, and a hay maze transforms the bales into a labyrinthine adventure free of minotaurs selling timeshares. Bennett Farms demonstrates old-style cookery in the cookhouse, where chefs whisk pork skins and apple pies from a wood-burning oven before the wide eyes of onlookers. Though they are not included in this Groupon, pumpkins fresh from the vine ($3–$50) fill homes with breaths of fall when transformed into jack-o'-lanterns, pies, or magical vehicles.

Redeeming this Groupon for children's admissions represents the best deal value.

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.
