Nothing beats going to a Farm on a cool brisk Fall day and hopping on a Hayride with warm apple cider to sip on! Children begin to scurry through the pumpkin patch trying to find the biggest and roundest pumpkin they can find to carve and light up with the glow of a candle later that evening!

How about getting Lost in a Corn Maze! The fun and laughter when your family realizes they have hit a dead end and everyone shouts "Go Back...Go Back...Deadend!" The joy and high fives when you reach the exit feeling you have defeated the MAZE!!!

Below we have compiled a list of those fun places you can visit this Fall Season! Some are within Haywood, Jackson and Swain but we have also included some other areas in case you feel like traveling and want to visit more than one! Why not? Soon we will be in our homes most of the winter so make the most of the season and enjoy every colorful moment!

Always remember to call before you go...Farms sometimes have unforseen events happen causing a day of closure.
