Happy Thursday! This weekend, Jake and I went to a pumpkin patch about 45 minutes from Birmingham. Although it wasn’t Jake’s activity of choice, I could tell he enjoyed himself and channeled his inner child. I love all things fall and a pumpkin patch is a must-do for me. We decided to explore Old Baker Farm in Harpersville, AL after many recommendations. I also heard it got a write up in Southern Living recently, so I knew it must be good.
We went on Sunday afternoon, since it was rainy on Saturday. Old Baker Farm was packed, but we were impressed with all of the activities they had. They have a sunflower field, fields of cotton (they even have a cotton pit, which is like a ball pit but filled with cotton!), a corn maze and a hay maze, horse rides for children, a hayride to the pumpkin patch, and more. We had a lot of fun at the pumpkin patch, but I will say the actual pumpkins were getting pretty picked over at this point. You can check out Old Baker Farm’s fall schedule here. Their admission is $10 a person and includes 1 pumpkin per person.
Other pumpkin patches within an hour from Birmingham that I’ve heard are good:
- 4D Farms
- Helena Hollow
- Teshua Farms
- Griffin Farms
- Penton Farms
About my Outfit:
Although our weather is finally mostly feeling like fall, it ended up getting pretty warm Sunday. Originally I planned to wear a sweater, but with the heat it was just too warm. I ended up wearing this Chicwish leopard dress, since it wasn’t too heavy. It is the perfect fall staple! It is great for church, the office, or a date night. The dress does run big, but comes with a belt to adjust the waist. There was a lot of walking at the pumpkin patch and I didn’t plan the best shoes. I ended up changing into my extra pair which didn’t really go with my outfit. This is why my feet are cropped out of my pictures.
P.S. I know I said my Boston guide would go live today, but pumpkin patch season is almost over, so I needed to get this post up ASAP. My Boston guide will go live Monday!
