Let's Go to the Farm!



Hey! It's October, the weather is fabulous, perfect time to visit the farm!

So, sit down, grab a cup of coffee or better yet a cup of apple cider and I'll take you to the amazing things going on at Butler's Orchad farm.

It will be a short drive, but as soon as we see this sign, the fun begins!



Big roads are left behind, we continue our trip through mother nature's majestic tunnels!



Tall trees flank each side of the winding road, until we reach our destination.






As soon as we see this old weathered shed, we know we have arrived.




On the left, we can admire this beautiful log house, home of the Butler's family.



This would be their backyard, the log house is to the right, but in reality their backyard is just about 300 acres!



Continuing up the road a few feet away from the log house we'll find the Farm Market.  It used to be a little red barn, but in 1993 it was expanded, and this new modern building was then created.



Once inside, the most charming seasonal displays will get anyone's attention.  Don't you just love the beautiful display cabinet?

with all those little details all around?



Decorative pumpkins, owls, spiders, cats, carrots, you name it, can be found here!


Going around, another wonderful piece of furniture takes my breath away!

Isn't it amazing?!


Looking for some inspiration to decorate your home for Fall or Halloween? What better place than the Farm!


You'll get ideas for bookcases, mantels, front doors, and outdoors.



A couple of these guys would look lovely outside your front door!


But not everything is about decorating in here (only that my eyes cannot stop gravitating to that area), on the other side we can find all that yummyness! Jams/jellies, preserves, salad dressings, gourmet condiments, local honey, maple syrups, apple and pumpkin butters, baked goods, dairy products,


and of course, farm fresh seasonal produce.



Buuut remember it's October, we must be looking for some pumpkins! Yes! I'm so happy you came to the place where the hard decision is which kind of pumpkin you want to get!  So many varieties!



For that, let's go outside again, cause they have their own space outdoors and if we cannot find the perfect one around here or on that nice wagon, we can go and pick our own from the field!



so, let's go there!


But wait! Not before putting some of these colorful mums apart, in case we forget!



While a short drive to the pumpkin patch we can enjoy looking at all those colorful signs,




or perhaps try to follow the long rows of crops that fill the landscape.



Until we reach our destination!



the pumpkins!







After picking some of them we go back, not without looking at all the beauty that surround us!  Aproaching the cornfield,



old memories come alive, like my kids and their friends running throughout the maze


trying to be the first ones to find the way to its center!



Or the times we traveled these same roads on a hay wagon ride with our little ones by the side.



There have been lots of memories created here at the farm,




and this month I hope to create some more!



Have a Berry good day! :)



and please, this October, take one of those little roads to visit and support our farms.

  1. Fall usually makes me sad because it always leads to yucky winter . . . LOL but I DO love going to pick apples, eat cider donuts, get pumpkins, etc. Looks like you found it all on your adventure!

  7. I Loved this post. We have several farms in our area....I did a post or two about one of them, and then have not yet sorted through all of the pictures from the 2nd farm visit. Each one is different, as is yours....and has its own character and special displays and activities but every year it is wonderful to revisit them and make memories. You have great photos and a talent for making your story fun!

  8. Thank you for taking me on the drive through the majestic tunnels, past the colorful signs and the shed, inside the building and back to the farm to the maze. I feel like I had a lovely day in the country. Love it!

  14. Looks like a wonderful time and such beautiful countryside. Your leaves are still so green so you must live somewhere much warmer than here.
    Thanks for sharing.

  16. What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.

  18. This post is truly what Fall and family is all about! Love the beautiful pictures that pull us in and take us along on your fun day!

    We too have places like this at our cabin in western mass. And I never tire of the beauty of it all and feel so blessed to have a place like that to escape to.
