Mom Report: Country Pumpkins is perfect for Fall Fun!

Last day is Oct. 30! Read on to learn why your family should visit!

The wait is over. Fall is here! Crisp air, crunchy leaves, bonfires and fall festivals. My family recently visited our favorite fall fest in Northern Kentucky- Country Pumpkins! Each year, Country Pumpkins gets better and better. From hayrides to turbo slides, they’ve got it all! 

Country Pumpkins is a family-run business. They are all wonderful! They keep the farm organized and their staff is kind and helpful. There was always a staff member nearby checking on families, answering questions and cleaning the area. A special shout-out to one of the owners, Shelley. She helped prevent my son from having a meltdown when he spilled his slushie and she gave him a new one. Crisis averted! 

My son’s favorite activities were chunkin’ pumpkin, the corn maze and the loft play area located in the Pumpkin Ridge area. He launched a pumpkin and hit a target, found his way through the maze and played in the corn pit in the loft (which was a great sensory activity)! I enjoyed the hayride and cow-milking demonstration that one of the owners, Matthew, presented. It was fascinating to see how modern technology can milk cows! That was a special event for the day. 


Grab a camera because there are photo opportunities galore! I was able to capture so many cute photos of my son. Country Pumpkins also has a cute, little gift shop; yummy concession food and treats; barrel train rides; a petting zoo and more! There was so much to do and my son never got bored. Woohoo! In the words of my 6-year-old, “This was the best day EVER!” We are looking forward to visiting again and definitely recommend adding this fall festival to your fall bucket list. 

Parent tip: my son has some special needs and can get easily overwhelmed. There was enough space on the farm to find a quiet spot for a “brain break”. This helped tremendously! 

Country Pumpkins is located at
1835 Sherman Mt. Zion Road, Dry Ridge, KY. For more information, visit CLICK HERE! or check out their Facebook page Country Pumpkins.

Also, check out their new tiny house vacation rentals on their website. The houses are beautiful and located on the farm!
