Be sure to check out Our Farm, an award-winning family farm in Cazenovia that has an array of activities to offer school children during the week and the public on the weekend throughout October (including Columbus Day).
Visitors can enjoy horse rides, hayrides, the petting zoo, corn maze, U-Pick pumpkins and a catapult! That’s right, “Boris,” a trebuchet standing 15 feet tall, will throw pumpkins 250 feet into the air to crash-land 200 feet away!
Plus, Our Farm offers four flavors of rhubarb sauce that are made from rhubarb grown on the farm and processed at Nelson Farms.
And just down the road Critz Farms is hosting their 2013 Fall Harvest Celebration. Running now through October 27, they have ongoing activities, special events and festival entertainment.
This year’s corn maze has been designed in cooperation with their friends at Morrisville State College, taking the form of the gigantic Mustang Madness Corn Maze. You’ll have a blast “horsing around” in this challenging maze while you learn more about what makes the Mustangs so special. As usual, you’ll be able to enjoy the maze, find the information stations, and earn a prize!
Other activities include the Critz Critter Animal Area, live music & entertainment on weekends, wagon rides to the apple orchard and pumpkin field (weekends only), U-pick apples and pumpkins, fresh sweet apple cider, hard cider tasting at the Harvest Moon Cidery, Kiddie Corral Playground and Slide Mountain Playground to name a few.
Critz Farms is open Monday through Friday 10am to 5pm—including Columbus Day—and Saturday and Sunday 10am to 6pm.
