Family Fun at Barton Hills Farm
It’s a good day when you get to spend time outdoors with friends who are like family. Today we visited Barton Hill Farms, which is set amongst 100-year-old cottonwood trees, rolling grassy hills and the picturesque Colorado River. Their Fall Festival & Corn Maze is the perfect setting to let your kids enjoy true outdoor entertainment, including rides, games, a corn maze, pumpkin patch, local vendors and farm animals.
In the pumpkin patch you’ll find pumpkin after pumpkin, tiny and large, orange or white, as well as setups for family picture taking (and friendly employees offering to take your pics). MJ and her friends enjoyed walking through the field of pumpkins, and MJ finally settled on two tiny pumpkins, one white and one orange.
The kids slid down the slides, rode the barrel train over and over, and munched on snacks while sitting on a blanket in the shade and listening to a live band. There was lots of fun to be had and memories to be made. With so much to do, we didn’t quite get to it all, and a second trip would definitely be worth the drive.
The Fall Festival & Corn Maze is open Saturdays and Sundays until Nov.9. The hours are Saturdays from 10 a.m. – 10 p.m. and Sundays 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Admission is $8 per person for ages 3 to 10 and $11 for ages 11 and up, but tickets are discounted $1 if bought online. Admission includes entry to the corn maze and pumpkin patch. Children two and under are free but must accompanied by a paying adult. The Adventure Pass is a $5 upgrade and provides access to the jumping pillow, barrel train, pony hops, and trike track. Most kids enjoy the Adventure Pass, but adults can stick with General Admission and be fine. Some other activities such as the purchase of pumpkins and food for the animals (or BBQ or snacks for yourself) cost extra.
