My recommendations for the Best Pick Your Owns, Fall and Halloween Events for the Whole Family

The leaves are a changing, football is well underway and pumpkin and apple picking is everywhere. It is Fall again in Northern Virginia.

I have scoured the local news to find the best listings of Pick your Own Farms and Halloween Events for the kiddies. But I wanted to add my own picks.

Ty Pumpkin Patch

My personal recommendation is Great Country Farms in Bluemont, Virginia out in Loudoun County. It might be a drive for some but I would argue well worth it. There are enough activities to please all ages and tire out the little ones. (not to mention Pumpkin Chunkin) We also get a chance to go out to actual fields where the apples are grown and pick them off the tree.

Then I proceed to can the apples for apple sauce.


(Psst: There’s are two breweries and a vineyard nearby as well #vawine #vabeer)

Dirt Farm Brewing

Bear Chase Brewing

Bluemont Vineyard

Also the best part is that Great Country Farms is also open for business in the Spring and Summer as well a real gem.

Want something a little further in and get the sillies out of the kids? The Reston Farm Market off the corner of Barron Cameron and Route 7 is a great choice for bounce houses and buying a couple pumpkins if you live nearby.  There is a great BBQ Food Truck on site. Our kids like it so much we just bought season passes.

Have a blast out there everyone.
