Running Sunday, September 30, through the end of October, the ranch’s fall festival is open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturdays and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays. During the weekend, festival-goers partake in autumnal activities ranging from covered hayrides to a petting zoo inhabited by horses, cattle, llamas, and rabbits. As everyone enjoys favorites such as fresh cider and popcorn, youngsters can ride ponies, explore a meadow’s native prairie grasses, or pick out pumpkins from the patch to take home or carve into a festive football helmet (additional food and pumpkins are not included with this Groupon). Starting at 5 p.m. every Saturday, the hay-bale maze transforms into a dark labyrinth, challenging visitors to navigate its twists and turns with a flashlight in hand.<p>
Lazy T Ranch Adventures
Lazy T Ranch Adventures' owner Ron Wilson is, to say the least, prolific. Serving on several government agricultural committees, he has described himself as a 4-H member, radio broadcaster, Sunday-school teacher, and hay-bale stacker—and his poetry, in a wry nod to the lasso hanging from his saddle, has earned him the title of Kansas's Poet Lariat. His wife, Chris, is equally accomplished, currently serving as deputy secretary of the Kansas Department of Agriculture. Together they invite visitors to their cattle ranch—owned by the family for three generations—to tour attractions such as Sugarloaf Hill, with views of the Kansas River Valley, and a collection of horses, cattle, goats, and chickens. The farm also hosts an annual autumn festival every October, during which guests can ride across the meadow on a haystack ride, pick pumpkins at the onsite patch, and sip on the tangy apple cider that dairy cows produce only in the fall.
