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: for $8, you get a family outing for four at Priddy Farms in Bartlett (a $16 value). Priddy Farms is open from Oct. 1 through Oct. 31. The outing includes:
- Two corn-stalk bundles (a $6 value each)
- A hayride (a $3 value)
- A train ride for children up to age 13 (a $1 value)
At Priddy Farms, families venture through 23 acres of fields, pumpkins, and crops, partaking in autumnal activities including hayrides and pumpkin picking. Families have free dominion over sprawling farmland rife with fall sights and scents perfect for picture-taking or researching homemade scratch-and-sniff stickers. Hop aboard a hayride heading out to the pumpkin patch, where pumpkins and gourds await adoption ($3–$20 each, price not included in Groupon). Children up to age 13 can roam the railways on a mini train ride or help parents select two take-home corn-stalk bundles. Families can explore myriad trails cut through the landscape, collecting acorns or basking in the brisk fall breeze. The farm remains open until 9 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, so adventurous patrons can bring flashlights to seek glimpses of deer, foxes, and the farmer’s pajamas.
