This weekend we were invited to check out a local farm and all their fall fun! We became a #PineyInfluencer and made some #PineyMoments of our own! Piney Acres Farm is a family owned 73 Acre farm where you can find Christmas Trees, Pumpkins, and more!
It was about 30 minutes from our home and we’d never been before, but we all loaded up in the car for some Friday night fun. Being just outside Fortville and known for it’s Christmas trees, we weren’t sure what to expect for a Fall Season outing!
Immediately the girls fell in love…
The old men that great you in the lobby are funny & whimsy.
We quickly made our way outside to what ended up being LOADS of fun and a bunch of different things to explore! I honestly wasn’t expecting so many things to do! We could have stayed at least 2 more hours if the girls had their way! As it was, we spent almost 2 hours exploring the farm and all it had to offer.
Starting with the Animals…
Goats, what felt like thousands of chickens, ducks, pigs and sheep are there to feed and observe…
SO cute they were!
And cats… “key cat” as Olive called it…
I’ve never seen both my girls go so bananas over something like they did for the giant jump pad! I’ll admit, I was a little worried at first because there is no barrier, but they have an attendant on it while the kids are jumping and there’s a no bounce zone which is two rows of space around the outside and neither of the girls ever touched that area! They absolutely loved bouncing outside!
Then we made our way to the hayride. We plopped onboard and took about a 15 minute hayride through the fields… Surrounded by Christmas trees! It was pretty magical at sunset too! We also saw a few sneaks (which I wasn’t fast enough to grab pictures of) of the Halloween setups for their Haunted Hayride! We can’t wait to go back out and check this out!
Back on the farm, we explored the Spider Web – Both girls enjoyed this, even if it was a little hard for Olive.
Duckie Water Races where the kids pumped water, like the olden days, to race the duckies to the other side!
The corn maze! We love corn mazes. Honestly, we usually don’t finish them, but they have a kids version (with no confusion) which takes about 7-10 minutes to walk through.
And we explored the Gem Mine area… which we didn’t know there was one around here so it was a nice treat! We did this with Ella in Nashville Indiana and she loved it! Knowing there’s one a bit closer is really awesome! They uncover gems and sleuth away the dirt and sand.
There’s also a string maze which Ella did on her own.
All in all, it was such a fun night with my little family. I loved that it wasn’t spread out like crazy and the girls could easily run from one thing to another all the while being in my line of sight!
They have all kinds of fun events coming in October. And if you are looking for something fun to do be sure to add this place to your list!
