Pumpkin Patch: Hickory Ridge Farm

We ventured out to Hickory Ridge Farm Pumpkin Patch last weekend for a bit of fall festivities. Hickory Ridge has a pumpkin patch, hayrides, barrel train rides, pony rides, and vendors. There were food trucks and vendors, plus the farm was selling all sorts of produce and fall decor plus hot apple cider and cider donuts along with an array of cakes, pies, jams, fresh flowers, eggs, salsas and more. 
The Children's play area is free for ages 2 and under, or $3.00 for over 2. The play area includes sand pits and trucks, play houses, a hay bale maze, slides, a petting zoo, and more. The $10.00 combo ticket for children over 2 includes the hay ride, play area, and barrel train. Items can also be purchased individually. 
Be sure to head to the back to check out the corn maze. That was our favorite part! I am disappointed to report that even though their daily Facebook posts clearly ask for people to wear a mask, that we were honestly shocked by the amount of people who were not wearing them. We ended up leaving as it got crowded because of it and not getting to ride the barrel train which we had paid for- bummer. If we go back I think we will shoot for an hour before closing rather than the hour that they open to try to avoid a crowd!
