Sweet Season Farm & Giveaway

What: Sweet Season Farms; Where: 2260 Horn Road; When: Saturdays and Sundays from October 1 to November 6; Cost: $5

Sweet Season Farms is opening up on October 1 for their fall season.  They will be open on Saturdays from 9 to 5 and Sundays from 1-5.  They will be open October 1 until November 6th.  I have been in touch with Sharon from Sweet Seasons and she has said:

**Update: I just got an email from Sharon and she said that the corn has grown to 4.5 feet in most spots! Perfect for kids to get lost in!

And so is the plight of the farmer! Unfortunately, this year our corn is only 2-4 feet tall due to drought.HOWEVER – We will still be OPEN and still have your favorite farm activities at a discounted price! $5.00 for EVERYONE (ages 3 and up) gets you in the farm! Included with admission: maze, corn cannon, cow train, hay ride, playground, hay bale maze, picnic areas, corn picking, games and more!  Visit our website at www.sweetseasonfarms.com or Like us on Facebook for more information!

Visiting a farm is the perfect family activity!  Even though the corn isn’t tall enough for adults and big kids to get lost in doesn’t mean that you can’t have a fun time at the farm!  We think there are lots of reasons to visit Sweet Season Farms!

  • There aren’t too many other times during the year that you can shoot corn out of a cannon!
  • The kids will love being whipped around in the cow train.
  • Let the kids run around and get some fresh air while you rest at a picnic table.
  • The farm is the perfect place for family pictures with a fall theme.

Holland Farms Pumpkin Patch

What: pumpkin patch; Where: 2055 Homer Holland Road, Milton, Fl; When:  Monday through Saturday 8 am-6pm, Sunday 1pm-6pm; Cost: $8 for pumpkin and all activities or $5 for pumpkin

Beginning on October 1 and continuing through the month of October, Holland Farms will welcome people to their pumpkin patch for a fun family outing.  Last year, we were so excited to find a real pumpkin patch where you can go out and pick your own pumpkin!

Holland Farms is a family owned peanut, produce, and row crop farm.  It is located in Milton, Florida.  It isn’t located too far from Sweet Seasons Farm (which we will be talking about tomorrow!) so you could plan a whole day of farm visits!

All month long, Holland Farms will be offering visitors a chance to pick their own pumpkins from the pumpkin patch, take a hay ride, walk on the hiking trails and just relax and enjoy farm life!  Visitors receive a cup of boiled peanuts to eat on the front porch or take home for later.  For $8 a person, you will receive a wristband that will get you a hay ride, all other activities, and one pumpkin.  For $5 each, you can purchase a pumpkin.

On October 1, Holland Farms will hold their Customer Appreciation Day with live music and a cup of boiled peanuts.

See our review of our visit to Holland Farms last year.

Things to Know Before You Go:

  • Holland Farms is a peanut farm.  They sell peanuts of all kinds.
  • Pumpkins ready for harvest have been cut from the vine already.  This is to ensure that you are picking the ripe pumpkins.
  • You might want to wear closed toed shoes as you will be walking around the farm
  • A trip to the pumpkin patch is good for children of all ages.
If you have additional questions, you can visit Holland Farm’s website or connect with them on Facebook.

 

Cambridge Farms – Milton, FL

What:  Cambridge Farms; Where: 3200 Deloach Lane, Milton; When: Hours vary daily, check their FB page to confirm; Cost: FREE

Today I am welcoming Ashley to Pensacola with Kids with her guest post about Cambridge Farms!  I was so excited when she offered to write up a post about Cambridge Farms because it is on our list of places to visit but we just haven’t gotten there yet.  Thanks for your post, Ashley!

I really love the simple life of a farm, don’t you? That’s why on a mid-Sunday afternoon we decided to venture out to Cambridge Farms in Milton, Fl.  It looked like quite a drive on my phone’s map, but it was a nice scenic ride through the country! Newly planted fields in prep for the fall crops surrounded the road. We saw cows, horses, and even had a few opportunities along the way to stop and buy the farms produce out by the road. And I spotted Holland Farms, which is a great place to visit in the fall.

Once we found the farm, (they have little signs posted) we drove down a long bumpy dirt road. At the end, there was a cute small house with a big nice porch, and a barn-like structure. The really nice owners immediately greeted us, and offered to give us a tour of their animals. We saw lots of ducks, geese, huge turkeys, chickens, etc. The goats greeted us as we walked up, and one of their potbelly pigs! We got to see the peacock resting under a tree. And the best part is, most of their animals are rescues. They really educate you about the animals, and you can really tell they love what they do. The animals were so well taken care of! This farm is one of the most natural farms I’ve seen, they use zero chemicals/pesticides and make their own compost. They are one of Florida’s few natural vineyards!

The blueberries from Cambridge Farms were awesome! They had huge bushes with sweet delicious berries. They were full with ripe berries but still had plenty of ones that will be ready over the next couple weeks. For a 5lb buckets its $7.00. We filled ours up ¾ of the way and bought a bumper sticker all for $7.00. They also had a nice porch with plenty of seating. L and I sat here while hubby broke into our car with the keys locked inside. L Tom even sent me an e-mail saying they now offer “moonlight pickings” on Friday evenings. They have live music, and blueberry picking from 6-9, so it’s cooler in the evening to pick. I’m sure this farm as much more than what we saw, we will be visiting again in the fall for the U-pick grapes! 

Things to know before you go:

  • Bring sunscreen even though they have great places to pick in the shade!
  • They did offer us drinks several times, but I still prefer to bring my own.
  • There are free-range animals on the premises, so watch out for everything they leave behind!
  • Hours are 7-4 Mon-Sun, or call for appointment.

Cambridge Farms has a very active Facebook page and if you ask a question there, they are quick to respond.

Ashley C. is a mom to a 13 month old little boy.  She was born and raised in Pace. They are an outdoorsy kind of family and they love to go on new adventures (even though L is so young!).  She is also very active in the MOMS Club of Pace/Milton where she serves on the board. 

Tree Farms in and around Pensacola, Florida

When do you put up your Christmas tree?  Do you put up a fake tree or a real tree?  Does your family head out to a Christmas tree farm to cut down your own?

Here are a few U-pick Christmas tree farms in our surrounding area.  Even if you already have a tree or put up a fake tree, a visit to the farm can be fun for the family.  If there are any farms to add to the list or if any of these are no longer operating, please let us know!  As always, make sure to call ahead before you go.

Fish River Trees – Located in Summerdale, AL; This is the only farm on the list that we have visited.  We had such a great time and we didn’t even go to pick out a tree!  There is a ride around the farm, hot chocolate to purchase, Santa and reindeer to visit.

Whispering Pines Christmas Tree Farm – Located north of Milton; They have staff to help you with your tree purchase.

Country Pine Christmas Tree Farm – Located near Bratt; Enjoy the pond, free cookies and candy canes for the kids, and run around while looking for your tree.

The Christmas Tree Forest – Located in Pensacola; They have both choose and cut and potted trees.
