Fall on the Farm at Blooms and Berries

Fall on the Farm at Blooms and Berries is pretty Cincinnati famous. I had actually never heard of this one until I started getting more involved in the group of Cincinnati Bloggers over on Instagram. This year, it was at the top of my list for fall festivals we want to visit and it’s fame was not oversold!

My first impression of the place was that it was huge! I think the kids were a little overwhelmed as well because there is just a lot of stuff going on. The Hay Ride takes you to the corn maze, there is a sunflower field with a walk through of “Spookley the Square Pumpkin,” a giant pumpkin bounce pad, some farm animals, a huge slide and climb house, musical instruments, duck racing, bumblebee ride, and a giant tractor (that was Isaacs favorite part). And that’s just what we got to in our two hour visit before meltdowns. There is MORE!

We started off at the pumpkin inflatable, and it took awhile for the kids to adjust to everything going on. Isaac enjoyed watching, Adelaide followed around a “baby” even though said baby was the same age as her, but there wasn’t much jumping.

The staff did a great job at keeping a rotation going so that there weren’t too many kids on the inflatable at a time. We went during Toddler Tuesday, in the morning, so there weren’t many kids anyway. Typically they have a line form and the kiddos get to jump around for the duration of one song (I believe). But because there was a smaller crowd, the kids got to jump a lot longer.

The best part, for me, was being around all of these other moms who were standing around the edges and making sure no one’s little fell off the side. Group effort is a definite must and it just felt so happily Midwest 😀

A highlight was definitely riding the bumble bee tractor pull. Isaac was able to ride by himself, and I had Adelaide on my lap. There were a few single rider cars, and a few (3 I believe?) side by side cars.

The rest of the morning was spent just trying out all the knick-knacks/activities around the farm. We walked through the sunflower field, read the story of Spookly the Square Pumpkin. We played some musical instruments, climbed up and slid down the slide fifty times, climbed on a spider web (Isaac is obsessed with Spider-Man), and hung out on a tractor.

We finished out our morning with a second trip to the bounce pumpkin, and this time these kiddos knew what was going on. Isaac wrestled with his friend, Adelaide made friends and danced to the music.

It was honestly a perfect morning. We spent about two hours, from 10:30-12:30, and it was enough to knock these littles out for a great afternoon nap.

The night before we were going, I almost bought the season pass but I wasn’t sure how often we’d really go. The answer to that is often, if you have some week day freedom, go for the season ticket. It will pay for itself in two visits. It was just such a young family friendly experience, that I know we will be back through the season.

Hope to see you there!
