This past weekend, Jeff and I decided to get into the fall spirit by checking out the absolutely gorgeous Sinkland Farms, a pumpkin farm in Christiansburg, with a corn maze, hay rides, barbecue, “bluegrass pickin,'” crafts, and of course, a pumpkin field with hundreds of opportunities to find the perfect pumpkin to take home.
The farm was packed with families enjoying the perfect fall weather and festivities.
Though tempting, we opted not to go through the corn maze ($5/person), and being the frugal people we are, decided to walk out to the pumpkin patch and forgo the ($2) luxurious hayride to find the perfect pumpkin.
The farm had plenty of pumpkins to choose from at the entrance, but it turned out that the pumpkins from the patch were $2-3 cheaper than the ones of a similar size already picked. Definitely worth a little hike in my book!
We also checked out the “Punkin Chunkin,” or pumpkin toss, but again, didn’t want to subject our precious pumpkins to a quick death by catapult. Our front porch is better off for it!
The farm also had pony rides, horse trails, a kid maze, barbecue, ice cream, coffee, music…the whole shebang.
It was definitely a fun place to get in the holiday mood, although the prices add up pretty quickly if you’re not careful. Also, be warned–parking is $5 a carload, so carpool if you can!
