Fall is an exciting season in Kentucky. Thousands of farmers across the state get ready for the fall harvest. Here in Kentucky, we're lucky to be able to grow delicious apples, peaches, squash, gourds, pumpkins, pears, and more.
What's even better is that many Kentucky farms invite visitors to come and pick seasonal produce themselves. This is a great opportunity for everyone to come together and explore how our food is grown while supporting local farmers and communities. Most small towns offer Farmer's Markets, which makes for a fun family adventure close to home while enjoying a quick getaway at a Kentucky B&B - search for "child-friendly inns" on our website www.kentuckybb.com. Many Kentucky B&Bs are Farmstays, which means you can stay overnight on a working farm. Oh how fun for everyone!
As Halloween grows closer, visit a local pumpkin patch with your family and friends. It's way more fun than buying one at the grocery store. In addition to the freshest, biggest pumpkins around, many farmers have corn mazes, playgrounds, and farm festival events for their visitors to enjoy.
At the end of the day, you could walk away with fresh-pressed cider, homemade donuts, and the perfect pumpkin ready to carve. Don't miss out on fall in Kentucky.
It's harvest time! Below are some of the best farms to visit if you want to have a great time on your fall trip to Kentucky.
