A few weeks ago I published a huge list of Pumpkin Patches and Fall Festivals around Central Ohio, but for this month’s Five on Friday I’m featuring 5 farms we’ve actually been to! 😉 These 5 farms offer a variety of activities and experiences and we had a great time at all of them!
1. Leeds Farm
- 8738 Marysville Rd., Ostrander OH 43061, 740-666-2020
Leeds Farm is the ultimate pumpkin farm experience! Corn bins, straw mazes, zip line, hay rides, petting zoo, pedal carts, paint guns, pumpkin jump, everything you could imagine or want is there! Besides the activities, they have a full menu in their cafe including sandwiches, desserts, donuts and apple cider slushies! Don’t miss the kettle corn popping on the back porch!
- 9399 Morse Rd. SW, Pataskala, OH 43062, 740-927-8559
Lynd Fruit Farm has been one of our go-to spots for picking apples since we moved to Columbus almost 10 years ago! Most of my memories there are of being freezing cold! This year we got smart and went apple picking in September to get the Autumn Crisp apples. Warm weather and sweet apples made for a perfect trip! Lynd Fruit Farm also has a corn maze and other farm activities such as barrel train rides, a fun zone, bounce house and wagons rides. Don’t miss the large farm market and huge selection of pumpkins!
- 7255 US HWY 42 N., Plain City, OH 43064, 614-873-0510
Orchard and Company offers a picturesque location for apple picking during August and September and weekends in September and October offer Fall Festival activities like wagon rides, a corn pit, hay barn, animals, pedal car track, tire climb, slides, zip lines and more! There is also a cafe and bakery.
- 6142 Lewis Center Rd., Galena, OH 43021, 740-548-7866
Freeman’s Farm offers a more low-key Fall Festival experience. Activities include hayrides, scarecrow making, petting zoo, kettle corn and a campfire with hotdogs for you to roast yourself. Near the campfire area, you can also purchase chili, chips and beverages for a perfect outdoor lunch! There is no entrance fee to Freeman’s Farm so you can pick and choose the activities you would like to do with individual fees for things like the hayride, feed for the animals and scarecrow making.
- 5895 Johnstown Utica Rd, NE, Utica, Ohio 43080, 740-892-3989
We went to Branstool Orchards for peach picking, but you can also pick your own apples and pumpkins there at the farm, too! Pick a wagon and take the kids out to the pumpkin patch where you can pick your own pumpkin and have a picnic at one of the picnic tables throughout the orchard! Don’t miss the market which is full of local produce and Ohio made foods!
