Good afternoon moms! Hope you all had a very Happy Labor Day. We went apple picking at Great Country Farms. Located in Bluemont, this picturesque farm is only 25 minutes from Leesburg! Hop on a tractor, soak up the sun, and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere all around you. The apple season has just begun, so take advantage if you can! Throughout the year, they grow raspberries, peaches, and strawberries. This is a family friendly farm, with miles upon acres of fun. You can literally spend hours there! Whether it’s picking a fruit, riding the cow train, visiting animals, driving a tractor, climbing on playgrounds, bouncing on pillows, flying down slides, mining for gold, getting lost in a maize of bamboo, and more! Stop in the farm store and be sure to try the apple cider donuts, refreshing apple slushy drinks, and more yummy treats! Great Country Farms has something for everyone, for children and family of all ages.
