It’s Fall Festival Time!
Are you, your family and your friends ready for some fall family fun, Huckleberry style?
Fall Festival starts September 29 and runs every Saturday and Sunday through October 28. We are open from 10 to 6 on Saturday and 1 to 6 on Sunday. Our last ticket is sold one hour before closing.
One admission price gives you access to all the fun. We sell our pumpkins, fall decorations, refreshments and merchandise separately to keep our admission prices low.
We have a corn maze, a tractor-drawn hayride, a real pumpkin patch (cut your own pumpkin right off the vine!), a cotton patch, and lots of old timey games and activities including duck races, pumpkin checkers, giant sling shotz, a water-powered target gallery, pumpkin checkers, a corn diggin’ trough, corn hole, and a mini Field of Dreams.
We are conveniently located on Hwy 64 between Pittsboro and Siler City, just 30 minutes from Cary, Apex, Chapel Hill, Durham, and Greensboro. It’s an easy drive over a shining lake and rushing river, through beautiful rolling country and past farmland complete with horses, cows and red barns.
Countdown to Huck's Fall Festival
Where's your huckleberry?
Several years ago, we embarked on our boldest effort on the farm; making the farm accessible to those with access challenges. Since then, we have build a wheelchair ramp from our parking area to the farm yard, added a ramp to our hayride, split the cornmaze into two parts (one more level for those with “sports” wheelchairs) and create many activities that allow easier access to all.
The first time we heard that staggering number of children in America who were malnourished, we are stunned. We asked ourselves, what can we do to help. The Evans family from Piggly Wiggly gave us the answer. Start right here in Chatham County. As a result, Huck collects cans of food that we give to the Evans family to add to what they already donate to local food charities.
When we first started talking to the good people at the Autism Society of North Carolina, we were so impressed with all they do for this community. As such, we decided to help with fundraising for the Society and offer a special day for their families. Through additional discussions, they shared with us different ways we could make our farm more autism friendly through the creation of quiet spots and tactile stations/activities. We also discuss with our staff, how best to work with autistic people and their families.
We continue to expand on this…more to come.
