Each Fall, we can’t wait to load up the kids for a fun-filled visit to Barton Hill Farms! Just a short drive to Bastrop, this picturesque farmland is set among 100-year-old cottonwood trees, rolling grassy hills and views of the Colorado River. But beyond the pretty countryside allure, Barton Hill Farms has loads of activities for the whole family. It’s a perfect place to kick back and enjoy a full day of games, music, pumpkins, food, a corn maze, and good times.
Mark your calendars! The annual Fall Festival & Pumpkin Patch will be open weekends from September 29 through Nov. 4. Visit on Saturdays from 10 a.m. – 7 p.m. or Sundays from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. You can also plan a bonus visit on your Columbus Day holiday, Monday, October 8 from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
The Ultimate Fall Day Trip: At Barton Hill Farms, you and the kids will love navigating the big corn maze or picking out a pumpkin — but there’s so much more to see and do. You’ll want to make a day of it! kids will enjoy visiting with the farm animals, pillow jumping, face painting, a barrel train, and so many games, slides, a tricycle track and more. You can listen to live music daily and have dine on the many food & drinks offered onsite. Of course, before you head home you’ll need to explore the pumpkin patch in search of the perfect pumpkin to paint there or take home with you to carve.
The Do512 Family team takes our kiddos every year. Check out some of our photo memories below:
