For $4, today's side deal gets you admission (a $4 value) and an additional $4 towards a purchase at the gift store, café, or pumpkin patch at Bloom Where You’re Planted Farm (an $8 total value) in Avoca (about an hour from Omaha). Admission for mini adults aged two and under is free.
Established in 2005, Bloom Where You’re Planted Farm offers a bevy of family-friendly activities while also offering loads of fresh air and outdoor recreation. Hop on a hayride, hike a nature trail, challenge farm animals to staring contests, or paint a pumpkin. The on-site Schoolhouse Café offers tasty eats such as a hot dog basket ($2.50) and a smoked pulled-pork basket ($4)––both of which come saddled with a side of chips. Peruse a pulchritudinous pumpkin patch and the charming rural locale before stopping at the gift shop, which offers items such as beer bread mix and locally made jams ($5.95 each).
