Wayside Farm Fun 2017 + 20% off Admission

 Wayside1 (1 of 1)

It’s officially Fall in just a few days, yay! If you’ve been following here for a while then you know how much my girls and I love to visit farms this time of year! I am super excited that Wayside Farm is opening this weekend – September 23rd! We first visited Wayside last year and although it’s about an hours drive away from us, it was well worth it and definitely one of our favorites! The trip out to Berryville, Virginia is so pretty with the Blue Ridge Mountains in the background. And Wayside has the BEST pumpkin patch where you can pick all different colors and shapes of pumpkins! (See the big white one we picked last year in the photo above!)

Also, this year Wayside has kindly offered all my readers 20% off the admission fee. Just mention “Capitol Momma” at the register to receive the discount off the prices below.

General Admission……..$10/person
2 and under………………..FREE
Military with ID…………….FREE
Group (10-20)……………..$9/person
Group (20 or more)……..$8/person

September 23-October 29
Saturdays…………………………10 am – 6 pm
Sundays……………………………10 am – 6 pm
​Columbus Day……………………10 am – 6 pm

Here is some more info from Wayside:

Located directly off Route 7 in the heart of Northern Virginia wine country, Wayside Farm Fun is a beautiful working farm set against the backdrop of the Blue Ridge Mountains.  Known for growing the prettiest pumpkin varieties in the area, visitors are invited to pick pumpkins of all different shapes, colors and sizes in their 8-acre u-pick pumpkin patch.  After pumpkin picking, enjoy a variety of fall activities such as the jumping pillow, pumpkin cannons, slides, animals, and more.   End your day of fun by getting lost in one of the area’s largest corn mazes – this year our theme is Pokemon Go.

This year we are also hosting Scouting Day on Sunday, October 1.  Scouts receive a discounted rate and are invited to participate in a Pass-a-Pumpkin community service project.  A flag ceremony will be held at 1 PM before the pig races, and all scouts receive a patch.

On October 20 and 21st, Wayside Farm Fun is once again partnering with Loudoun Valley High School Performing Arts Department to create a Scary Corn Maze.  The maze will be open past dark and include a guided tour through a spooky maze inhabited by costumed actors.

Summers Farm 2017 + 4 Ticket Giveaway!


It’s that time of year……there’s a crispness in the air and all things pumpkin are starting to appear! One of my favorite things to do with my girls in the fall is to visit farms and go to fall festivals. I love being outside as much as possible and there is just good ol’ fashioned fun to be had at the farms. One of our absolute favorites in the area is Summers Farm in Frederick, Maryland. We’ve been going the past three years – see a blog post from 2014 here. (I can’t believe how little my babies look!!!) I’m excited to take them again this year. Summers Farm has added so many new things including a new themed (12 acre) corn maze, Round Bale Rollers, Lil’ Barnyard Ball, an Events Barn, fireworks most weekends on Friday and Saturday nights and much more! They are officially opening for the season on Saturday, September 23rd!

I would love for one of my readers to experience Summers Farm this year too! So I’ve partnered with the farm to offer a 4-ticket giveaway! The tickets can be used anytime this season (September 23-October 31). To enter, simply leave a comment on the blog post. I’ll draw and notify a winner next Thursday, September 21st!

Here are a few photos from our trip to Summers Farm last year-
