It’s definitely time to be snapping pics of our adorable kids at the pumpkin patch!
So where to go in Northwest Arkansas?
Well, Farmland Adventures in Springdale rocks. There’s the giant, 9-acre safari-themed corn maze, a pick-your-own pumpkin patch, wagon rides (they added a third wagon this year), pony rides, a new and improved petting farm, a concession stand, a larger kid’s play area, pig races and campfire fun. They also have a smaller Mini Maze for kids not ready to tackle the big one. And be sure to check out Farmland’s “flashlight nights” for evening fun at the mazes!
This year Farmland updated the tent and added new birthday party areas. There are also new animals, including a water buffalo and Al the Alpaca.
