This weekend we were invited to Sahl Father Son Farm for pumpkin picking, corn mazing and more.
Sahl Farm is in Egg Harbor, NJ. I've never been there but it is only a hour away and a pretty drive especially with all the changing trees right now. It's a family run farm with the nicest family. Even their kids were running around helping out here and there.
There was a little hay maze for little kids to run through. I can't even tell you how many times Elinor did this maze. I figured the first time through she would end up just climbing over the hay but she didn't! She worked around the maze until finding the exit. She saw the 3 corn mazes after. She ran straight into the middle level. We let her go and just followed closely behind. We ended up having to turn around and come out the entrance. We didn't have a map and following a 2 yr old wasn't a good idea. The beginner level worked out a lot better.
There was so many activities around and everything is right in the same area. Your kids can run around and play in all directions and you can still see them. I saw it happen! As I talked with jersey family fun bloggers I watched Elinor play on a dirt hill and in the corn barn. There is also a frisbee game, racing pigs, racing plastic ducks down a water pump and more! I felt sad about the racing pigs when we first got there. But then we saw a race happen. The owner gave the pigs a treat and then put the rest of the treat on the other end of a small circle. He would let them go and they just ran to get the rest of their snack. Plus those little guys were so so cute.
The last thing to do was pick pumpkins. We got on the tractor hay ride and went out into the field. Elinor only wanted tiny so cute pumpkins. She's into everything being tiny and so cute right now. We convinced her to find a bigger pumpkin for now.
We spent a good few hours there. It was a perfect day and such a pretty place. If you are near Egg Harbor, NJ, check out Sahl Father Son Farm.
