Fall Family Fun at Paulus Farm Market

Paulus Farm Market in Mechanicsburg, PennsylvaniaEvery year my family enjoys getting together during the Fall season and participating in seasonal activities together. One of our annual traditions is to visit Paulus Farm Market in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. This year, it was our 4th year in a row of visiting to partake in festive fall activities.

Paulus Farm Market is a combination farmer’s market, petting zoo and they host seasonal activities throughout the year. In the farmer’s market you can buy meats, cheeses, fresh fruits, vegetables, canned jams & jellies, homemade breads and all kinds of different things. Everything we buy is always delicious and we’re supporting a local mom & pop business.

If you want to visit with the on-site farm animals, you pay a reasonable admission fee. For a little bit more, you can buy “farm animal food” that they provide in a pail and the kids can walk around and feed the animals on the farm. My grandchildren LOVE petting and feeding the friendly animals, particularly the pigs and goats.

During the Fall season they have fun family hayrides, a corn maze, a pumpkin patch, pumpkin carving and pumpkin throwing. It’s a lot of fun and we enjoy going every year! Now that I have two grandchildren, it’s double the fun!

    I am looking forward to doing this kind of activity with my grandchildren when they are a little older. There are so many fun activities at one of these farms, especially this time of the year.

  2. We have a place similar to this that has seasonal adventures and even has sheep shearing in the spring. We like to take the grandkids at least once a year to one of the activities. Fun to get out and enjoy.

  3. I’m going to the Pumpkin Festival on Saturday. They planted 10 acres of pumpkins and you get to go out in the field and find just the right one for you.

  4. I love going to farms like this one at this time of the year. These pictures are so cute looks like everyone had a good time.

    These are always fun to go to. We have one nearby . Ours is a strawberry field in summer and the same farm does pumpkins. They have hayrides and a corn maze along with other activities. It looks like you all had a great time visiting!

    that looks like so much fun. We have very similar things to do here. I live in farm country in the South. I hope we can go on a trip to a farm soon.
