Come for a Pumpkin—Play the Whole Weekend
Is a trip to the Pumpkin Patch on your to do list this fall? If so, there are lots of good reasons to visit Delaware County. Multiple farms feature pumpkin patches, foods, festivals, farm animals, and lots of fun activities and experiences.
Take a ride to the pumpkin patch, roam your way through a corn maze, ride a pony, make a scarecrow, hunt for arrowheads, or play barnyard golf. Other activities including giant Legos, barrel rides, farm bounce house, petting barn, mini zip line, straw barn, pumpkin jump, pedal cars, and slides are also part of the fun.
Be sure to come with an appetite, too. Kettle corn, hot dogs, chili, apples, baked goods, cider, and fresh dipped caramel apples are sure to please the taste buds.
