Cox Farms Opens Today!!

If you have active children (or you are a kid yourself), you must not miss a fall day at Cox Farms in Centreville, Virginia.  I am sad that my son now says he is too old for it; I still love it.

Cox Farms offer the most fun hayrides EVER, including aliens and fun “getting stuck” in the mud.  And you can ride as often as you want!

There are also hay bales to climb on, frisky goats to feed, and musical performers (often bluegrass and kid folk rock, e.g. Raffi songs).  Don’t forget sunscreen.  Watch a cow getting milked!

Hot dogs and hamburgers are for sale, as well as pies, kettle corn, preserves, apple cider, mums, and pumpkins.  Admission includes a free, small pumpkin.

Cox Farms can get super-crowded on the weekends, but the place is huge, so there is always something to do. Just expect to wait in line for a hayride. During the week, they are often mobbed in the morning by school groups, and that is also when some of the best programming is offered.  But if you want the place to yourselves, you can always visit late in the day during the week.

Aliens and hayrides: never gets old!
