Pro Tips to Help You Survive Your Pumpkin Farm Visit
- Consider visiting the farm earlier in the morning or later in the day to avoid the sweltering mid-day heat.
- An over cast day can also provide great relief from the heat, if you time your trip to avoid the storm.
- Be sure to bring tote bags or a collapsible wagon to make transporting your pumpkins easier. If you are taking a hayride, bags are the way to go.
- At a pumpkin patch or corn maze, strollers are definitely more trouble than they’re worth. Consider baby wearing instead.
- By their nature, farms have a lot of dirt. Come prepared to clean little hands by bringing hand wipes, especially if you are planning to eat while you’re there.
- Some farms only accept cash, so be sure to verify with your chosen farm prior to leaving for your trip.
