Ashland Berry Farm

With vibrant gardens and vast pumpkin fields, Ashland Berry Farm is a beautiful setting for visitors to enjoy harvesting, gardening, animals, and more. Ashland offers the Pumpkin Harvest Hayride, an interactive tour for students and scouts that lets them touch animals, learn about seed to seed planting, and take home their very own pumpkin. Visitors will tour different areas of the facility such as the pumpkin patch, Animal Corral, and 3D Boo House, where special effects for Ashland’s Haunted Evenings come to life. Children can also wander their way through The Great Pumpkin Maze. Tours are available from October 8-28.
