In October, we took a little trip to Southern Belle Farm in McDonough, Georgia. We wanted to celebrate autumn and a corn maze seemed perfect. One quick Google search and we found one only 30 minutes away! It’s in a historical 330-acre farm, open seasonally to the public for berry picking and other attractions. Currently they’re closed until Spring for strawberry season (which we’ll hopefully be going to) so I wanted to reminisce about the few hours we spent there.
As always, pictures were taken by Elizabeth.
Not the most flattering photo but I was so excited to go on the hay ride!
We didn’t know much about the farm until we got there. During the hay ride, the driver told jokes (lots of puns) and explained what they grow on the farm during each season. They didn’t have much since it was getting colder but there was a pumpkin patch!
It’s a family/child friendly place to visit. We were probably the only people there without kids! There were a few pig races scheduled for different times. The pigs all had punny names like Boarbra Streisand. Kids got to volunteer to represent a pig and if their pig won, they got their very own pig nose to wear.
The petting zoo was probably my most favorite part! I loved everything about the farm but I’m a sucker for cute animals, especially tiny ones. They were selling feed but we didn’t have enough cash on us so they ended up giving us as a sample to share. Employees were extremely nice and wanted everyone to have a good time.
The corn maze was loads of fun! There were questions about Georgia and farming posted around to try and steer us in the right direction. They had a platform in the middle to walk up and see the entire maze from above. I could have stood up there forever! It was such a nice view (pictured above). We probably made it through the maze in 30-45 minutes.
Before we headed back to the car, we visited the gift shop. There were rows and rows of jams and other products they make on the farm. We ended up getting homemade vanilla ice cream and a fried apple pie. They have seasonal ice creams too so when they open in the Spring, I’ll have to try their strawberry ice cream. We spent some time relaxing in the rocking chairs and people watching before we left.
It was a really fun trip! I can’t wait to go back.
