Pumpkin Farm Fun

Lewis' Pumpkin Farm in New Era, Michigan offers all the family traditions you're looking for in a family pumpkin farm.






Acres of pumpkin farm surrounded by loads of family fun.






Pedal cars and pumpkin jumps...






...pumpkins everywhere.






This was our second year in attendance.






Lots of cool things to climb on,






a kids' train through the orchard,







a lengthy haunted hay ride through an orchard --complete with pumpkin chucker,








and hands down the best petting zoo around.








The goats were able to climb over us in this crazy goat apartment complex.








Someday,
if our ten acre small farm is ever realized,








we will definitely have some of these. 








And maybe a few of these, too, because I really love the fiber.








Alpacas are so darn cute.








We still talk about maybe adding a few turkeys to our yard next year.








This place had chickens, pea fowl, a camel, a donkey, two ponies... the kids were very excited. 

They also had a great market with fresh apples as big as a doorstop, breads, pies, toys, ice cream, apple juice, etc.  Just delightful. 

All very reasonably priced, too, I would say.  Much more affordable than the over commercialized pumpkin farm back by our hometown where they ship the pumpkins in overnight on a flatbed (so fake).



 





Bee, the camel, was very up close and personal!  A very friendly camel.







The sun was bright, the air was warm, and you couldn't ask for better weather for fall.
(Can you tell they just wanted to run around and do stuff??  No more pics, Mom!!)

Looks like you had loads of fun. Your pictures are great and your kids are sweet. Our daughter has a pair of turkeys. The male thinks he's a watch dog....funny as all get out...he chases cars along the fence line!

What cute little pumpkins! I'm talking about those darling little ones. We have a place near us that is very similar. Went there last year with family and the grandies loved it. Also did a corn maze. Spending time with family in the outdoors is always a highlight. glad you had a fun day! Always wished I had grown up on a farm. Hope you get those animals.
