Holiday Acres Farm in Ethridge Tennessee
Here is our top recommendation for the fall season of the year. Holiday Acres Farm is the best place to take your kids during the fall. They have more pumpkins, rides, slides, playground equipment, corn pits, kid maze, corn maze, petting zoo, farm educational center, sunflower walk, and tractor wagon rides than anyone else. All this only costs you $10 at the time of writing! Bring a group of 15 or more with you; it is only $8 per person! School moms and fall break would be great to team up with your friends and meet on the farm for more playmates at a discounted cost! They also have a party section for weddings and other outdoor events by a pond with a wooden walk-out section with flowers, shrubs, and sunflowers in the background! See the photos below!
Holiday Acres Farm is great for kids
The whole farm can be seen as a great learning opportunity for kids to learn about farming. They have sections where they take you through different stations where kids have the chance to lift fake plastic eggs from illustrated chickens and bottles of plastic milk from illustrated cows to a section that shows how the produce goes to container trucks for distribution! This is a great way to teach kids how the milk and eggs get to the grocery store shelves and the role of our great farmers! The processes are clean and only illustrate the animals because handling these products could lead to germs, but no worries with the toy versions! They have a petting zoo where they can pet baby animals like rabbits, a donkey, a Shetland pony, and small goats. You can also throw pellet food to various chickens and caged roosters! See the photos below of the farm education!
There are plenty of activities to do!
Kids love to play with and see animals. You can also pick sunflowers and walk the corn maze to find clues along the way to help you get out. This helps you work out problems as a family or team when you get through, plus you get to ride the tractor wagon over to the corn maze. In the very back of the farm is an imagination station of kid activities. These are self-guided and will walk you through the woods and fields to each activity! Each station is themed and includes activities like music, arts, creativity, and make-believe. The last station has a wardrobe of dress-up toys like masks and props so a child can act out all they want in the style of their favorite action hero or possible future profession. The tractor wagon comes around often, so you can get back easily!
Here is a personal story from us at The Amish of Ethridge. We personally take our kids to Holiday Acres Farm. Our kids love the corn pit the most as it is huge and about 10 inches deep in hard corn. They love this place and can be a kid here with so many things to play with. The education series is excellent for teaching them about farming, and they talk about going back all the time. We believe this is the best place to come for fall, and you can buy a pumpkin or sunflower that you picked out that was grown on the farm. Combine this place with your Amish Adventure, and you will be glad you did. Remember that they are also open during the year by appointment only, so call or email them to get in if you are not here in October. The seasonal events won't be running, but at least you can get in on the playground.
Death Ridge Haunted Attraction
Since October is their big month, they also have a haunted woods walking type of spooky adventure. They are kid-friendly, so they offset the play area hours to end at 5 pm and start the spooky things at 7 pm so that we can get the little ones out before they see anything that scares them. The haunted attraction is not rated R like some haunted houses marketed for adults. Their haunted attraction is more PG-13 and doesn't have foul language or excessive gore to scare you, so most kids 13 years of age or more should be ok. They have a huge cast of people who put on this event, and it is one of the better spooky events for Halloween in the middle Tennessee area. The event is also very popular, so get your tickets early!
