Fall Family Fun

When the leaves start to turn and the cool crispness clings to the air, it just might be time for a trip to one of your town's nearby farms where pumpkins are king and a short hay ride leads to more fun out on the back forty.

There are several farms close to Raleigh where your family can tap into the country fun and frolic of fall.

Vollmer Farm in Bunn, NC offers fantastic fun for the fall harvest season. 

Farmer John and his staff will greet you as an old friend when you climb aboard a tractor hay ride that winds its way to the back forty playground area, complete with games, super slide, corn maze, and one fabulous giant orange jumping platform.

Vollmer Farm does not disappoint any age group.  With rides and games for all ages, your family is sure to fall in love with activities such as the corn crib and the cow train.

Another great seasonal option is Hill Ridge Farm in Youngsville, NC where the children can pan for gems, ride the hay ride or a real train, and pet some friendly farm animals.  Another perk is the free pumpkin at the end of your visit. 

Both farms are only 30-45 minutes away from most Triangle locations.  The trip is worth it to see the smiles on your family's faces.  Remember to bring your camera, because you don't want to miss this picture perfect photo opportunity.

Happy fall to you and yours!
