Whether you are interested in apple picking, playing with animals, or finding your way through a corn maze, there are so many fun activities at local farms to enjoy with friends and family. Here are a few notable farms:
Mann Orchards. Go apple picking in a 40-acre apple orchard, pick a perfect pumpkin, enjoy a hay ride, shop local produce and more.

Local farms, which were just discussed, not only have fun activities you can enjoy, but they also offer tons of delicious produce you can bring home.
