If only we had thought to call the place before we go in the car. About five (of the ten) minutes into our drive, we decided to call in and find out about their offerings. Only to discover that they only offer scheduled hay-rides out to the pumpkin patch and the next one wasn't until 4. (It was 1:30).
But then-- I REMEMBERED!! I had grabbed a flier from the corner deli under 4nP for Neltner's Farm. The flier boasted a corn maze, fresh baked goods and produce, pumpkins, and a petting zoo!!!! Now, I love anything that has the word zoo in it. I still mentally think "CooooLLL!!!!" in a little kid's voice whenever Jeff takes me somewhere with animals. I love it. So, naturally, I was sold. We called up for directions and info to discover that not only were all of the things promised on the flier real, but pumpkins would run us 34 cents a pound and the corn maze was only 3 bucks. Score.
The best part of the "petting-zoo" were the horses. They also had turkeys, goats, sheep, donkeys, etc.
A horse drawn wagon was set up to take people out to the pumpkin patch.
The produce and fresh baked goods inside the barn looked awesome. There were yams, cucumbers, and a plethora of other garden veggies. As well as jams, assorted gourds, pickles, and fresh cider.
I really enjoyed this day.
And our pumpkins turned out great!
