Located about seven miles east of Findlay is a small farm that packs a big punch of fun for you and your family this Fall! Pumpkin picking is always fun, and that is the same at Homestead Fall Farm. But even more fun is to be had than just picking pumpkins.
Opening for the Fall season on Saturday, September 17, your family can play ‘Punkins and Putters’ putt-putt golf, go on a barrel train ride, spend time on the new playground, play yard Yahtzee or Jenga. As an active farm there is also livestock to see! Watch the horses gnawing their hay, the pigs rolling around and the turkeys strutting their stuff. If that isn’t enough, go on a free hayride or find your way through the family friendly corn maze! Of course, this isn’t just all fun and games – get some shopping done as well! Homestead Fall Farm has all the decorations you will need to transform your home into a mini-Fall Farm. Pick up your gourds, bi-color corn, broom corn, corn stalks, and so much more. Although Fall is definitely in full swing, it isn’t too early to start thinking about Christmas – the gift shop has some unique Christmas decor as well as Fall essentials and you can take advantage of the warmer weather by picking out your Christmas Tree. Just ask if you can go out and tag the perfect tree that will bring your family holiday cheer when the weather turns cold.
Expand on your Fall fun by heading down the road to Geckle Orchard! Featuring Open Houses four consecutive weekends beginning September 17-18 Geckle Orchard will be open for tours of their apple orchards, tours of the cider press, purchase their amazing homemade cider and homegrown apples, as well as goods made from their apples! Adding another aspect of fun this season is Homestead Fall Farm’s Customer Appreciation Day. This year taking place on Sunday, September 25 from Noon – 5, there will be all the day-to-day activities and so much more. Enjoy delicious food from local vendors, purchase homemade goods from craft vendors, have the kids enjoy a free pony ride, and there are even more surprises planned.
