Fall on the Farm at Blooms & Berries

by Katie on October 13, 2017

Of all the fall activities that our family enjoys each year, Fall on the Farm at Blooms and Berries is one of our absolute favorites! They offer such a family-friendly atmosphere, with activities for kids and adults of all ages.

Their 7-acre corn maze features a who-done-it game called “The Great Migration Mystery.”  Kids can meander through the maze and search for all five items that Monica Monarch needs for her great migration in order to complete the maze.

Towards the center of the maze, there’s a staircase with a platform to see not only where you’ve been, but where you need to go as well.

In addition to the corn maze, there are a variety of life-size games for kids to play, such as guess who? and connect four.

There’s also an interactive outdoor play area with giant slides, tire horse swings, a spider web climbing challenge, a giant tire pyramid, and a farm-themed ring toss.

On the other side of the farm, little ones can enjoy a bucking cow train and kids and adults of all ages can take a tour of the farm on the 30-minute hayride.

And of course, while you’re at the farm, you’ll definitely want to check out the farms animals and the spectacular flowers around the grounds as well.

Oh, and don’t forget to stop at the Blooms & Berries Market on your way out.  From apple butter and jams to fresh apples and pumpkins, their store is the epitome of fall freshness.

For just $8 per person on weekdays and $11 per person on the weekends, you’ll have an all-access pass to all of these fun activities.  If you visit on a Toddler Tuesday, you’ll be able to enjoy story time at 1 p.m. as well as half price admission for kids ages 2-4 with a paying adult.

Fall On The Farm 2017 runs from September 23rd through October 31st. You can check out their site for current hours and hayride times.

Plus, my readers can save $2 off any regular priced weekday admission (Monday through Friday) to Blooms and Berries Fall on the Farm!  You can print off this coupon which can be used for up to 4 people.

Save $2 on Admission to Blooms & Berries

by Katie on September 22, 2017

Fall on the Farm offers a fun-packed day for the entire family at Blooms & Berries Farm Market in Loveland, Ohio. Activities include a 30-minute hayride around the farm and through the woods that stops in the pumpkin patch, a 7-acre corn maze that features a who-done-it game called “The Great Migration Mystery,” a children’s play area, the bucking cow train, farm animals, and more.

Fall on the Farm is a great way to spend a beautiful autumn weekend with your family, making memories that will last a lifetime. When you pull up to the 61-acre farm, the first thing you’ll notice is their big, beautiful barn. If you look closely, you’ll notice that the truss under the front porch is made from reclaimed barn wood that is over 150 years old. This speaks to the tradition and heritage that is at the heart of the Blooms & Berries Farm. The front of the barn is decorated with beautiful flowers and pumpkins which makes a beautiful backdrop for family pictures.

Speaking of pictures, if you visit during the first week or two of the season, the Blooms and Berries 2-acre sunflower field should be in bloom (please call ahead of time to see if it’s peak bloom time).

The Blooms and Berries Farm is geared toward family. For just $8 per person on weekdays and $11 per person on the weekends, you’ll have an all-access pass to the fun activities mentioned above.  If you visit on a Toddler Tuesday, you’ll be able to enjoy story time at 1 p.m. as well as half price admission for kids ages 2-4 with a paying adult.

Don’t forget to stop in at the market barn and try out the fresh-pressed apple cider and caramel apples.  Plus, new this year, there’s fudge, cookies and apple crisps.

Fall On The Farm 2017 runs from September 23rd through October 31st. You can check out their site for current hours and hayride times.

Plus, my readers can save $2 off any regular priced weekday admission (Monday through Friday) to Blooms and Berries Fall on the Farm!  You can print off this coupon which can be used for up to 4 people.
