Farm Festivals provide a great opportunity for families to enjoy autumn days together outdoors and children can have a taste of farm life.

Activities may range from wandering through corn field mazes or picking a pumpkin from the field to climbing on hay bales and enjoying farm animals close up.

Van and I would like to share a few examples of families having fun at the Harvest Farm Fall Festival north of Wellington, Colo. The Festival will be open through Halloween on Oct. 31. Thursdays through Sundays are open to the public, while Tuesdays and Wednesdays are reserved for field trips for schools and other groups. (Closed on Mondays.)



For more information for directions, admission costs, and also daily times that vary on weekends, please check out the web site at http://www.HarvestFarm.net or call (970) 568-9488.

Harvest Farm is an outreach program of the Denver Rescue Mission, and provides services for 72 men in its long term residential program where they can get a fresh start as they work on the farm. Fall Festival is presented by the Colorado Eagles, with additional sponsors – TV Channel 7, Big Country 97.9, KISSFM 96.1, Western Dairy Association, Gallegos Sanitation Inc. and Rio Colorado Lodge at Red River, New Mexico.



Miller Farms of Platteville, Colo., also sponsors a unique Fall Harvest Festival that includes allowing visitors to not only learn where their food comes from and how it is grown, but they can pick their own produce which is theirs to take home. The admission price includes everything they harvest plus all other activities, which include a corn maze, hay maze, petting zoo, barrel train ride, John Deere pedal cars, a Monster truck, and real Fire Truck, Herbie.

Miller Farms Festival is open 9 a.m.-6 p.m. daily through Mid-November. A special Haunted Adventure is available through October 31, from dusk to 10 p.m. Miller Farms is located 5 miles east of I-25 on Colo. 66 and Weld County Road 19.

This year of 2009 has been especially difficult for Miller Farm as their crops were devastated in a summer hail storm, but they replanted as much as possible and are still reaching out to allow families the opportunity to come and pick produce. Miller Farms has even traveled as far north as Saratoga to operate a weekly farmers market.
