Things to Do: Pumpkin Picking at Briley’s Farm Market

pumpkin picking at Briley's Farm Market

It’s fall y’all! Today is literally the fall equinox. What better way to spend the first official fall weekend than in the pumpkin patch? Luckily, pumpkin picking at Briley’s Farm Market kicks off Saturday, September 25th!

Pumpkins and More

It’s time to cut loose and find that perfect pumpkin. It may be hard to believe, but pumpkin picking at Briley’s Farm Market just got more exciting! For the first time ever, pumpkin pickers get to find a pumpkin and cut it right from the vine.

Hidden under the large green leaves of the vines will be a wide variety of pumpkins. There will be heirlooms, jack-o-lanterns, blues, whites and more. However, guests can expect much more than pumpkins.

For example, you can also find plenty of natural fall décor. Hay, mums, Indian corn, cornstalks and, of course, a variety of pumpkins, will all be available to buy!

Additionally, lots of fun is readily available on the farm. There will be hay rides, games, a jump pad, inflatables, a corn maze, a petting zoo, photo ops, tube slide, tube swing, big cow train, little cow train, duck races, a kiddie play area and more!

Plus, when you work up a thirst, the Concession Barn sells lemonade, limeade, orangeade, water and other drinks. Treat yourself to roasted corn, boiled peanuts, popcorn, cotton candy and the like.
