Whether you're looking for baked goods, freshly picked fruit and seasonal vegetables, or a fun day outside with the family, Murphy's Farm & Bakery is all things fall-fabulous-fall.
The annual Fall Festival is also back again for 2019, and is open daily from the end of September until Hallowe'en.
The Fall Festival is a unique outdoor experience that's fun for the whole family. The number one Murphy's Fall Festival attraction is a wagon ride to the pumpkin patch, where visitors can roam the endless rows and multiple varieties of pumpkins in different shapes, sizes and colours. There is sure to be a pumpkin for everyone, no matter your preference.
“Over the years, we have created a fun outdoor play area for children where they can use their imaginations and experience fun outdoor play. It is a safe area with games, play & climbing structures for kids of all ages.”
Some activities include:
• Bouncing Pillow (weather permitting)
• Obstacle Course
• Mini Maze (for the little ones)
• Corn Maze (a challenging maze for the adventurous)
• Corn Trail (an easy walking path for the younger ones)
• Pumpkin Cannon Show
Weekends only. Show times: 11 a.m., 1:30 p.m., 3 p.m.
• Mini Train Tractor
Plus more activities added throughout the fall, and new new this year is the Murphy's Snack Bar – open on the weekends. Choose from a selection of hot and cold beverages, snacks, and of course, save room for dessert.
Weekday admission is $8 per person. Weekend admission is $12 per person (includes pumpkin cannon show and other exciting weekend activities).
Admission includes all of the mentioned activities along with the wagon ride out to the pumpkin patch where Pick-Your-Own Pumpkins are available for $1.50 or $6 depending on size.
If you'd prefer Murphy's to do the picking for you, they offer plenty of pre-picked pumpkins on the front lawn.
The Fun Farm Yard is open from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. with the last admission to the activities area and wagon ride to the pumpkin patch at 4 p.m. Dogs and other pets and smoking are not permitted on the property.
All fall activities are outdoors and will continue in rain or shine. For safety reasons, the Murphy's Bouncy Pillow will not be open on rainy days.
“Please note that our farm is usually cooler and windier due to the open farm fields. We suggest having children dress appropriately for the weather and have them layer up. Don't forget your rubber boots! We might sound corn-y, but we think the Fall Festival is a-maize-ing! See you soon!”
