If you are looking for a family-style farm with plenty to offer this fall, head to Von Thun’s Country Farm and Market in Monmouth Junction, NJ. They offer pumpkin and apple picking as well as many other pick your own activities throughout the year. The weekend of October 8th and 9th, 2011 they will be hosting a Farm Fall Festival which includes nearly 40 vendors selling great products, pick your own activities, as well as hayrides and other games for children. They have a large corn maze that is unusual compared to the regular corn maze. If you get lost, there are signs throughout the maze and it gives you a number to text on your cell phone to get directions.
Also featured is JMT Productions giving puppet shows. They also have a 40 foot long inflatable obstacle course. At the Fall Festival, Nashville Attitude will be playing some great live country music. Von Thun’s Farm also has several types of friendly animals including donkeys, chickens, goats, pigs, and even a horse! They offer acres of pumpkins and several types of fresh apples to pick that leads to hours of fun!
All this only 45 minutes or less from Union County.
