Weekend fall family fun: Homeland Creamery

My tiny dancer had a performance this weekend at a farm not too far down the road that we know well.

Not her actual performance. That’s just for funzies. They were having a fall festival, complete with vendors, food and fun. And of course, the ice cream shop was open.

My girls are into hayrides these days, and Homeland Creamery has a neat one: lots of pretty scenery and even a quick history lesson about the farm.

There were some neat vendors there, with homemade organic soaps, baked goods, woodwork, and even dried flower bouquets.

We even got to feed and pet a baby alpaca.

And look at this adorable calf!

We even got some homemade honey and some ice cream. A fantastic time was had by all! And if you have never been to Homeland Creamery in Julian, NC, you should definitely check that out.

Fall fun for the whole family: Smith Hollow Farms

Fall fun for the whole family: Smith Hollow Farms

We have recently taken a good look around and realized the younger members of the Lumber family are growing up…too fast. We have been trying to take the time to make some memories, and we’ve also been trying to explore some of our local area as well.

The little Lumbers have been asking to visit a pumpkin patch, and while there are two pumpkin patches within a short drive of our house, we decided to check out Smith Hollow Farm in Kernersville.

These two sweet sisters had a blast! They got to meet and even feed some of the farm’s many animals.

They both rode horses (It was the Littlest Lumber’s for the first time!!)

They also went on a hayride and got their faces painted.

We enjoyed the food and enjoyed walking around the pretty farm. Did you know they have weddings there? We didn’t.

The oldest Lumber tried her hand at archery- her Pop Pop would be proud.

And before we left, we chose two pumpkins to bring home and carve.

It was a great trip and didn’t cost us a lot of money. We had a great time and plan to go back.

You should definitely check it out! You can find their website at http://www.smithhollowfarm.com.

Join us next week for some fun fall crafts!
