Whites Country Farm is one of those quaint little farms that make you feel like you are in the middle of the country while really, it is just minutes from the center of town. We really love going here because the crowds aren't as crazy as the larger farms, making it easier to get around and we can keep an eye on our three year old while she explores in the exhuberant way she does, without getting in other peoples ways.
Of course they have lots of fun activities for the kids to do like the pumpkin ring toss and corn maze. Olivia had a lot of fun trying the pumpkin ring toss even though she didn't win, she felt like a winner just being able to play.
Ilias' favorite activity is always the corn maze and Whites doesn't disappoint. He and Olivia had a great time getting "lost", there were a lot of dead ends, which just adds more to the challenge for the kids. Since we were the only ones there, we played a little chase, putting smiles on their faces.
After the corn maze we took a little walk to the pumpkin patches. They have a good variety of pumpkins, perfect for carving. During their Harvest Festival, they offer pumpkin painting for the kids, for the pumpkins you have picked from the patch or purchased at the farmstand.
During their Harvest Festival they do offer hayrides in a cute little wagon. There is something about a good ol' fashioned hayride that makes you feel like it's a simpler time. The kids always get a kick out of it and I guess I should say that we all do!
When you get finished with all of the festival activities you don't want to miss shopping in their little store. They have some great little, nostalgic handmade toys and other wares. They also have locally sourced produce that is organic when they can get it.
If you want to go, Whites Country Farm is located at 3939 W Mains St, Medford MAP. They are open everyday 10am-6pm. Their Harvest Festival kickoff on Saturday, September 30th & Sunday, October 1st, 11am-4pm and then will be open every weekend through the end of October 10am-5pm.
