Bates nut Farm is a great fall family day. There are lots of things you can do there.
We met another roadschooling family that day because it's always more fun to share your adventures with friends.
There is a huge pumpkin patch. You can pick a pumpkin from the piles of pumpkins they have gathered or go out into the fields and find your own perfect pumpkin. There is also a scarecrow contest. Someone made a spider. I think that was my favorite one!
There were all sorts of farm animal from geese , pigs, goats, llamas, turtles and more! You could feed and pet them.
There were lots of shady picnic spot to eat our lunch. It was also my grandma's birthday so we took a tray of cookies.
The live music that weekend was fun too. It was country toe tapping music. My little brother danced to it.
There is a country store filled with all kinds of goodies. There was tea, fudge, ornamemts , nuts, candy, hot sauce, jams and so much more. My favorite part of the store was the souvenir area.
We didn't have time to take the hayride but maybe you can.
