Flocking to fall fun at Yellow River Farms

October 20, 2012

This autumn, as has been the case for years now, area families by the score will head a few miles west to Yellow River Farms, at 8535 East State Road 8. Fall pumpkins are easy enough to find just about anywhere fresh produce is sold, but a full fall family experience like that at Yellow River is unique to the area.

The farm not only boasts pumpkin patches which would make Linus' Great Pumpkin proud, but a fun hay maze, constructed of several layers of straw bales into a tunnel configuration whose darkness inexplicably fails to frighten most youngsters.
