The fall season has started with September, and seasonal family activities have begun. Many farms now offer accessible options for their fall events. Call beforehand to make sure what you want to do is available, and to discuss possible limitations. We’ve listed below activities to try either at your local farm or at home when it gets too cold outside.
- Apple Picking
Browse the selection of different apple varieties that orchards have to offer. Pick your favorite to take home or try other ones to discover a new favorite. You can also watch as they are made into apple cider, and enjoy a cup to keep you warm.
- Corn Maze
Most corn mazes have paths that are wide and flat enough for a wheelchair to safely travel through. Different farms often offer various themes to add excitement to your experience. Make sure to look again around Halloween, when special events will take place to celebrate the holiday.
Take a ride through the grounds to see the beautiful colors that fall has to offer. Go throughout the farm and see fall fruits and vegetables growing. In October there will be haunted hayrides offered at night for those who love to be scared at Halloween. Make sure to wear old, warm clothing in case it gets dirty during the ride.
- Bake a Pie
Fall season is the perfect time to bake with the many various seasonal flavors. Fresh pumpkins, apples, spices, and cranberries will make sure your favorite pie is extra delicious.
- Decorate a Pumpkin
There is much more to do than carving a pumpkin just for October 31st. Big and small pumpkins are perfect for the whole family to enjoy painting with things like faces, patterns, or other designs. Home-grown ones can be bought during a trip to your farm or even at a local market.
However you may chose to celebrate the fall season, it’s the perfect time to be with your friends and loved ones. There are so many different activities to try that you can find your favorites to do year after year.
