Are you serious about sweater weather? Do you spend your summer eagerly awaiting the renaissance of pumpkin-filled sweets in the grocery store? Are corn mazes your favorite kind of puzzle?
If you answered yes to any of the questions above, you’re in for a treat: Liberty Ridge Farm is a quick ride from Albany, and it’s the perfect place to enjoy the bounty of the fall season with your family. Read on for highlights and then head to their website to plan your visit.
Take a trolley ride to the pumpkin patch and pick the perfect pumpkin then find your way through the farm’s famous Corn Maze. This year the maze spans 11 acres and is cut into the shape of the United States. Visitors can navigate across the country and learn about state capitals and fun facts along the way.
Kids can see and learn about farm animals like chickens, donkeys, goats, sheep and cows in the Discovery Barn, and they’ll love milking Daisy the Incredible Milking Cow (disclaimer: she’s not a real cow, but she is real awesome). Feeling really corny? Take the family around the Maize Museum.
Brad’s Barnyard Adventure gives kids seven acres of space to have fun. There’s an 80’ slide, a giant Jumping Pillow, Rabbits to see, Farm Animals to pet, Corn Cob Express Rides, Peddle Carts and other fun activities. If you want to take your kids outside to enjoy the fall weather, Brad’s Barnyard is a great place to do it.
A Good Scare
Liberty Ridge Farm is charming, but it’s also terrifying – in a good way. Visit during an October evening to wander your way through a landscape of Nightmares (not recommended for kids under ten or adults who are total scaredy-cats).
Explore two Haunted Houses, the Field of Screams haunted corn maze, a Wooden Stockade Fence Maze, The Underworld Tunnel and the Forest of Fear. Your admission will also get you a seat at the Psychic Sideshow and a spot on the Haunted Trolley Ride.
Stop by the Barnyard Grill for a smoked pulled pork sandwich or a nice bowl of chili, then go to The Country Store to scoop put some homemade cider donuts, fudge and pies. If you don’t get an apple walnut pie or pumpkin pie, you’re missing a key part of the fall experience! Dragging a bit? Hit the coffee counter for a kick of caffeine.
Whether your favorite part of fall is the food, the fun or the fabulously crisp weather, you can enjoy the best of the harvest season with the people you love at Liberty Ridge Farm.
