Thanks to Mile High Farms for sponsoring our visit, all experiences are our own, of course!
It’s no secret, Mile High Farms in Bennett, Colorado, is our favorite fun place in fall. It’s a 30 minute drive from Denver going East on 70, with a gorgeous view of the Front Range as you look back West.
This is our 3rd year attending and my daughter always asks to return. There are many activities to choose from. Barrel rides, bouncy house, corn pits and face painting is generally the order we attack things. After that we’ll check out the alpacas, sheep, goats and chickens and ride on a tire swing. Then we visit the VERY LARGE horses and give them some love.
My husband usually takes off in the corn maze exploring while my daughter and I do the above mentioned activities. I’m not a huge corn maze fan, but Mile High Farms has intricately planned out mazes every year. This year the maze is in the shape of multiple alpacas. They’ve had cowboys and horses, and even Peyton Manning!
Finally, we hit the trail on a wagon pulled by a tractor to scout out pumpkins. We love the uniquely colored pumpkins. This year we brought home a white one, a green one and a nice big orange one. They cost $.80/lb, and there were so many there to choose from!
We always finish our visit with a trip to one of the few food trucks and eat at a picnic table under a tent and talk about all the fun we’ve had and how we can’t wait until next year to return!
