Apple picking is an experience that I had never gone through as a child but I definitely wanted my kids to experience it. It marks the end of summer, the beginning of a school year and one of my favorite seasons. I was so excited to hear that Von Thun Farms was treating me and my family with VIP tickets to visit their farm. We truly had a fall festival fun at Von Thun Farms. My apple picking experience was better than I had ever imagined.
Fall is the most exciting time to visit because they have U-pick apples, U-pick pumpkins, hayrides, corn maze and many more activities all in one spot. And when they say family fun activities, they really do mean it. My toddlers really got to enjoy the activities that they had from pumpkin bowling, bouncy house, straw maze, pony rides and mini tractors that they could ride. There were so many activities that we were not able to go to all of them because as you all know…toddlers don’t really have that much patience, lol.
The kids really did enjoy themselves. One of their favorite parts was meeting the animals and the pony rides. Both my kids loved the ponies so much that they wanted to do it over and over again.
I really enjoyed watching my kids face lite up when they saw each activity; and that’s what it’s all about. Making small memories that will last a lifetime. If you have never gone apple picking, then I highly recommend going to Von Thun’s Farm fall festival because you not only get to go apple picking, but you also get the full festival kick-off.
Did I forget to mention that the fun does not stop at the fall festival? Because now you get to try out all different kinds of recipes with all the apples that you got from the farm. I am not sure where to begin but my kids have had countless apples since we left and I am just happy that they are getting their nutrients while having some fun.
I am starting a new tradition in my family and that is to go apple picking every year and not just anywhere but at Von Thun’s Farms. I highly recommend this farm and this is my own opinion of course. It may differ from others but from my own experience; we had a great time. So, go check out Von Thun’s Farm or go to their website at Von Thun’s Farm.
Let me know your thoughts and experience.
