$23 for a family-friendly farm visit for four ($38 value) * 40-minute hayride * Corn maze * Visit with farm animals * Music * Free pumpkin
The non-scary hayride is geared to families with kids aged 2–10, and guests are encouraged to sing and dance. The farm is open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
During the brutal winter months, the harvesters at Westhaven Farm keep warm by growing tomatoes in the greenhouse. The veggies are ready by spring alongside cherry tomatoes and pesticide-free fruit pollinated naturally by bumblebees. Once spring blossoms into summer, the farmers dole out locally raised produce such as peaches, sweet corn, and u-pick strawberries. Autumn heralds the arrival of the dusky season with hayrides, farm animals, and a nighttime corn maze that guests can navigate with a flashlight. After Halloween, staffers transition into holiday mode by supplying free hot chocolate and cookies to patrons browsing the farm’s poinsettias, wreaths, and trees, from thin-needled Douglas Firs to bushy Blue Spruce’s. Once December 25 has come and gone, the farmers start the seasonal cycle anew, just as they have for the last 50 years.
