With COVID-19 still going on there are very few activities I am able to do with three small kids.
I have found visiting pumpkin patches to be the easiest thing to do to maintain distancing and get them outside. I have visited so many pumpkin patches this year.
And I am so happy I found this one — Taves Family Farms was phenomenal! There are so many fun things to do we didn’t even get to do it all. They have a corn maze, petting barn, peddle karts, jumping pillows (which we saw being heavily sanitized, which is important to me) a hayride and so much more.
For me and I’m sure a lot of other moms this is so important — it’s 100 per cent stroller friendly! I have a baby and a ton of stuff, so I need my stroller and can’t leave it behind. We skipped the tractor ride and walked to the pumpkin patch. There is a safe flat road that leads to the pumpkin patch. My two-year-old even thought the road was a perfect spot to stop for a little tantrum.
We had the best time. On the way out we grabbed apple slushies, and WOW they are incredible! I highly recommend grabbing one.
They are offering a fun and safe way for kids to trick-or-treat at the farm this year. Kids can dress up and visit 10 stations in a socially-distanced manner with staff wearing masks and gloves.
