Upland Hills Farm Fall Harvest Festival is a great place for families to sit back, relax, and enjoy the country on a real working farm. Our family ventured out to Oxford, courtesy of Upland Hills Farm, to check out all they have to offer during their Fall Harvest Festival (2016).
Updated Upland Hills Farm Fall Harvest Activities 2020
This year the farm has pared down the activities available due to Covid. Guests can visit the animals, milk a cow as well as watch a farm demonstration. You can also walk the storybook trail or enjoy a hayride. The farm also offers you-pick pumpkins, freshly made donuts, and cider. Finally, you can complete a scavenger hunt. Some of the activities include an additional fee.
The pony rides, magic shows, and duck feeding have been cancelled for the 2020 season.
Updated Upland Hills Farm Fall Harvest Fees
Admission to Upland Hills Farm is $10 per person. However, children 24 months old and younger are free. Guests can enjoy Hy’s donuts and cider from the concessions. You-pick pumpkins are sold by size. Surprisingly, the farm allows guests to bring in their own food, so feel free to pack a picnic lunch.
The Farm Experience
There are a couple of playground areas for the kids to enjoy and burn off some energy. The structures are a great place to climb, slide, balance, pretend as well as play in the sand.
Hayrides are available throughout the day. The ride takes you around the property and stops at the Storybook Trail, Pumpkin Patch (bring cash), the parking lot (so you can drop off your pumpkin) and the farm.
The Storybook Trail is a 1/4 mile walk through the woods (with a few hills) and lots of fun for the kids. Fairy scenes are staged along the path where you can search for items they “stole” from the farm. The girls enjoyed walking the path, finding fairies, fairy doors and looking for the missing items. Chancellor and I enjoyed the beauty of the property.
Upland Hills Farm also offers a farm show where you learn about the animals they keep on the farm. The show is filled with lots of fun facts and is very educational.
Overall, we had a fantastic time. We easily spent 5 hours at the farm with our three children, ages 7, 4 and 1. They were very upset that it was time to leave. We all loved the laid back feel of the farm which is very inviting and family orientated.
The Fall Harvest Festival takes place every Saturday & Sunday in October from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Two sessions are available, 10 am – 1 pm and 2 pm to 6 pm.
