2018 Fall Family Fun!

Farms, Corn Mazes, Pumpkin Patches and More!

By SCMK September 23, 2013

Fall is here and we have a MASSIVE list of fall and Halloween fun! You will want to bookmark both of these posts so you can find them in a hurry! 

Notes on visiting farms:

  1. Be sure to check their website for up to date information, additional farm activities and detailed directions before you travel. Please remember some of these farms were affected by Hurricane Florence and might still be recovering.
  2. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes because there is a lot of walking and you might get dirty.
  3. Little ones will probably be more comfortable in a stroller because sometimes there is a lot of walking.
  4. Take a blanket and/or chairs if you are planning to stay a while.
  5. Most farms can take debit/credit cards but some don’t so be sure to bring cash, please check their website.
  6. Most farms will have refreshments but you might want to take a picnic or snacks just in case.
