Mamas have been asking right and left where they can pick pumpkins and have fun with their kids this fall in Northwest Arkansas.
We’ve been pointing them to our Fall Fun Guide to NWA, which is sponsored by Farmland Adventures and full of ideas for things to do with your family over the next few months.
If you’re not familiar with Farmland Adventures, you really should add it to your family’s to-do list this fall. Not only can you pick pumpkins there, but you can also enjoy their HUGE corn maze which has a different theme each year. This year’s theme is Knights & Castles.
Here’s a coupon that’s good to use for the rest of September. Just print it off or show them on your phone: Farmland opened for the season earlier this month and runs through Nov. 4. In addition to the 9-acre Giant Corn Maze and pumpkin patch, there are also pony rides, farm animals, pig races, a kids play area, group outings or birthday parties.
Special “Mother’s Day Out” Days:
Farmland will be open on the following days from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Anyone can take advantage of these special days with special pricing of only $6 per person for anyone 3 years of age and older. (Kids 2 years and under are FREE with paying adult.)
→Thursday, September 21st
→Wednesday, September 27th
→Tuesday, October 3rd
Farmland also has nighttime adventures.
Flashlight Nights are every Friday & Saturday night during the fall season. This is where you can try the maze in the dark for a different twist. But be sure to bring a flashlight in case you “get lost” or flashlights are also available for purchase.
Here’s this year’s maze pattern:
Farmland Adventures is open through November 4th and here are their hours:
