NASHVILLE– As the fall weather approaches and Tennessee’s agritourism season is in full swing, a visit to the farm brings smiling faces, family fun, and unforgettable memories.
“We have 12 acres of pumpkins that look amazing,” Robertson County’s Honeysuckle Hill Farm owner Jeff Alsup said. “With more than 25 attractions, there are activities for all ages.”
Farms across the state have fun fall activities for everyone, including hayrides, pumpkin patches, corn mazes, and even pick-your-own muscadines at some local vineyards. As Halloween draws near, haunted farm attractions offer the excitement that has become part of Tennessee’s spooky traditions.
This year, White’s Family Farms, also in Robertson County, designed a corn maze of country music singer Alan Jackson honoring his 60thbirthday. Within the maze is a scavenger hunt filled with Tennessee music and Tennessee farming trivia. Additionally, Amazin’ Acres of Fun in White County designed an “I Farm iPhone” corn maze that has two levels of interactive fun.
“We are a real working farm welcoming people to celebrate fall harvest with us,” Amazin’ Acres of Fun owner Jimmy McCulley said. “We specialize in educational activities, where learning is fun and people of all ages can create unforgettable memories.”
With so many options in areas throughout Tennessee, you’re bound to find an agritourism destination near your hometown or wherever your fall travels take you. From kid-friendly places and haunted fields to romantic destinations, family-owned farms are perfect for every adventure you have in mind.
