I mentioned in my Halloween post that we visited, what I think, will be the farm we take our kids to for picking pumpkins from now on. Snead’s Asparagus Farm is about 40 minutes from us, and is one of several area farms that are popular this time of year.
G and I enjoyed it when we first discovered it before L was born. There was a lot more to look at this year, and I’ve slowly been going through my photos from the two trips I took with the boys last month. I have many more than what I’m sharing today, but these are my favorites!
The farm has always been an amazing place for kids to run around and explore, but they’ve added more in the three(ish) years since I’d been. It seemed as though every where we turned we found a swing. My favorite was the one made out of an old skate board. There were even rope swings by the creek and in a barn.
In addition to swings, they have a teepee made out of branches, bikes and bikes that look like tractors, and a creek to play in or walk across using fallen trees or bridges. They’ve even got an old Sikorsky H-34 (aka Choctaw) helicopter that you can climb into!
Everywhere we turned, there were signs encouraging us to walk around the grounds and explore what the farm has to offer. While the boys had fun playing, I had fun looking at various sculptures and old signs/farm equipment that have been placed around the farm. This was one of my favorite sculptures:
I left Snead’s Asparagus Farm wishing I had several acres of land so I could create things and display them around the property.
I might wait for the spring, but I’m hoping to go back with just myself and my camera. I took a lot of pictures, but there were still so many things I wanted to capture and couldn’t because I was chasing after two little boys!
