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.
$12 for Farm Visit for Two Adults and Two Children with Hayrides and Kiddie Corn Maze ($24 Value)
Countryside Farms welcomes kids (ages 12 and younger) and adults for autumnal activities, including hayrides through the walnut farm and visits to the pumpkin patch. After picking pumpkins, kids can decorate them in the teaching area, play in the farmyard, or navigate the hay tunnel and kiddie corn maze. From a lookout fort, visitors can spot the corn-seed pond and the collection of antique tractors. This Groupon is valid Fridays from 1 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays from 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. between October 1 and November 4, 2012.
For four generations, the Cutter family has tilled the land and reaped the harvests of Countryside Farms. The farm opens its gates to strawberry picking in the early summer months, and to cherry picking in June. As the seasons evolve, so do the attractions. When pumpkins reach their peak of ripeness, which is right before they turn into carriages, the farm hosts fall-themed attractions including hayrides and corn mazes. In addition to growing different crops, the farm houses a variety of friendly animals—Quackers the duck, Thanksgiving the turkey, and Dewey the horse, to name a few.
