One of the great benefits of living in all four seasons is to experience the uniqueness of each. And, every year before the cold (the least fun of all seasonal factors… for me at least) sets in and stays for a long time we get these wonderful and colorful days that are falls best benefits. Here in Colorado, where we are surrounded by family farms, we get an extra special fall activity which is visiting the local farm. Every year we get to see what the families have put together to delight, wow, and maybe even spook us as the days wind down to Halloween.
Mile High Farm in Bennett, Colorado, succeeds in all of the measures of what makes a good fall festival. They have crafted a “scary” town that is just as good as any stage set. You will find the entrances to the corn maze between one haunted-looking house and another. The wonderful sense of being in another dimension is carried through right into the maze. This maze is extensive which, if seen from the air, is modeled after the profile of the Bronco’s quarterback Peyton Manning. We were strolling through this maze for more than an hour before we even wanted to return. And then, we had to work a little to find the way.
There is so much for the family and kids. The petting zoo has goats, mules, horses, turkeys (don’t touch) and more. There is a hayride out to the pumpkin patch. And special events throughout the season. You can spend the entire day there and when you get hungry, there are food kiosks and trucks that offer a wide variety of food and refreshments.
I think if I had a fall party to throw I would invite every body to Mile HIgh Farms and my guests would have the time of their life. Kids entrance is only $10 so it would make a great cost-effective birthday party place. The Farm offers a Field Trips during both the spring and fall. This is a wonderful opportunity of kids to see how food is a result of farming and nature working together.
