Milky Way Farm is located in Chester Springs, Pennsylvania. Every fall, farm workers grow and harvest pumpkins on the farm. The farm holds pumpkin harvest weekends for the public. Every year from September 30th to October 29th, the farm is open every Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.
During that time, people get free hayrides to the pumpkin patch. The hayrides run back and forth continuously. They can also walk to the patch via a walking path if they choose. It is a great way to spend time outdoors. Once people get to the pumpkin patch, they'll see about 25K pumpkins that vary in size. People can buy pumpkins directly from the patch. They can also buy other items that are harvested during the fall, such as Indian corn and squash. If someone is looking for fall decorations for their home, Milky Way Farm sells those as well during the fall harvest season. Finally, the farm has a corn maze that people can walk around in.
Milky Way Farm has belonged to the same family for four generations since 1902. It has been a farmstead since the 1760s when supposedly Native Americans grew and harvested crops on the land.
Besides growing farm fresh food, the farm focuses on educating people about sustainability and agriculture. By visiting here during the fall harvest season, people can see what goes into running a farm. Not only that, they'll have fun enjoying the outdoors while on the farm. If people are driving from far away, there are also shops and restaurants in town to patronize.
