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