Mile High Farms - Halloween 2014

Mile High Farms is hometown kind of Pumpkin Patch. I have been to almost all of the local pumpkin patches with my family and when it comes to one for the kids, it’s Mile High Farms.

There so many things to do with kids. They have a find the gnome game, A tire swing, petting zoo, maze, hay ride and so much more, the owners change it every year and update it to keep us coming back to see how it’s improved. If you haven’t been and had the chance to see the permanent houses, then you haven’t lived in a child’s imagination in a while.

Some tips when you go.

·        Wear good shoes, the parking lot is sandy and the pumpkin patch has large stickers that will leave decent sized holes in the soles of your shoes. You have been warned.

·        Bring some kind of work glove if you have them. Shove them in your bag and bring them out when it’s time to carry the pumpkins to the hay ride trailer.

·        Dress in layers. Some days it starts off cold but when you start winding through the ever changing maze, you will get warm.

Try and find the owner, he always has his face covered in photos, but sometimes you will catch a glimpse of him sitting and resting while you are getting ready to pay for your amazing pumpkins.

This year, my kids needed pumpkins for their school library’s “Decorate a pumpkin like your favorite book”. These are the choices they made and these pumpkins started their life in the lovely fields of Mile High Farms!
