365: Pumpkin Patch Month

October 5 is part of Pumpkin Patch Month. I'm going to be honest. It's not an official holiday yet. But honestly, what is October without going to the pumpkin patch? So, I am starting the trend!
We went to Burger Farm and Garden Center in Newtown. I worked there when I was in high school, so we decided last year to start an annual tradition where we visit Burger in October. Above L is 2018 and R is 2019.

Burger Farm's Pumpkin Festival is a whole lot of fun for the entire family. The price of admission ($10 for over 2) includes:

  • Hay Ride*
  • Pumpkin Land*
  • Puppet Show*
  • Giant Straw Castle and Maze*
  • Large Playset Area*
  • Giant Jumping Pillow (3+)
  • Pumpkinapolis 500
  • Trike Trac
  • Mini Zip Lines
  • Cow Train*
  • Barnyard Animal Viewing*
  • Barnyard Games*
  • Corn Crib*
  • Nerf Ball Shootout
  • Live Entertainment*
* denotes a toddler friendly activity 

I promise you, every age will find something fun to do. We went with some of Jude's toddler friends and their parents. The hayride was a pretty big hit with the toddlers as well as the Corn Crib. The Corn Crib was a giant sort of sandbox made up of shelled corn. Jude and S played with the shovels and toys in the Corn Crib while Q lived her best life and basically swam through the crib. 
There are pumpkins for purchase in a patch that the hayride takes you to. Jude carried around 2 pumpkins like he was competing in a Strongman Competition and the toddlers zipped around the patch. 
There are also games that you can purchase tickets for. You can also use the tickets to meet chicks, rabbits, and a giant snake. The toddlers met the chicks and rabbits. It's always a win in my book when there are genuine hands-on learning activities available. 
If you are in the Greater Cincinnati area, Burger Farm and Garden is a must visit in October!
