Pumpkin Patch Season

Sept 30: Springhill Cheese Farm

We milked Bessie the cow! First time I've ever even been that close to a cow. Reagan was too nervous once we got up next to it, but it was all she could talk about beforehand.

We dug up our own potatoes and chose our own pumpkin from the vine. Also got to see their milking barn, pet newborn calves (some only a couple days old), and taste their cheese and homemade pumpkin ice cream. The kids enjoyed the well-done hay maze too. The hour drive was worth it, especially since we car pooled.

Oct 7: Smith Family Farm

Here, we saw a really cute barn sing along show, got a trailer ride out to the pumpkin patch, saw animals, and did a hay maze and a corn maze.
