Mrs. Ruth's Farm and Corn Maze

What it is: Mrs. Ruth's Farm and Corn Maze is a family friendly and simple and spacious pumpkin farm!  We have always enjoyed bringing the kids to the various pumpkin farms, and this one didn't disappoint. Parking was easy and upon arrival, I was pleased to know that I could use cash or credit card for our tractor ticket/entry.  I entered quickly to hop on the tractor, but noticed that I was inside a really cute country store full of Halloween items for sale as well as pumpkins out front.

The entry fee was similar to most, $10 for an adult and $5 for each of my boys (3 and 4 years).  I got on the hay ride which had filled up and was greeted by very pleasant and relaxed family-friendly staff.  It is always nice when people enjoy what they are doing!  On we went, and were given a little bit of history about the farm on our way.  We rode past some large (adult and bigger kid-friendly) corn mazes that a few folks opted to walk through as opposed to riding the tractor to get to our destination.

Once we arrived (about 5+ minutes later), we were greeted by several activities (giant hay bales, child sized tractors and pedal cars to ride, air-filled ponies to race, corn hole), a snack truck, sandboxes, a jumpy house, and a beautifully spacious field all around.  One unique feature that we didn't have time to try was a "train' tractor pull.  Basically a tractor that pulled these little cars behind.  It looked like fun!

Although we were sharing space with many families, it was open enough that it didn't feel- crowded-which was really nice.  My boys preferred the sandbox and the jumpy house-so we spent most of our time there.  I packed a lunch so we didn't purchase from the snack stand.  I noticed, however, that cash was required.  We had a great morning!  My boys cried when it was time to go, and they rarely do that--thumbs up to Mrs. Ruth's farm!

What we liked: Friendly staff, reasonably priced pumpkins, wide open spaces, and fun for the whole family.

What we would change: Maybe credit card welcome at the snack stand?  Also, not something that we could change, but worth mentioning, it was sunny out the morning we were there--put sun block on your kids if you are concerned.
