Gallrein Farms, in Shelby County, KY, is our favorite place to visit for some festive fall fun and pumpkin picking. We have lunch and browse in the farm store before heading out to see the animals at the petting zoo.
Everyone loves climbing the massive pyramid of haystacks. Where there’s a will, there’s a way!
The kids are always very excited to see the tractor and hay wagons pulling up to take us out to the pumpkin patch.
They take the task of picking out the perfect pumpkin quite seriously.
We buy our pumpkins, along with some homemade fudge and jams. The day isn’t complete without playing on the wooden horses and antique tractor; climbing on that tractor is my grandson’s favorite part of the trip!
Everyone is tired but happy when we pull away. A fun day of making lots of wonderful memories, and my daughter always captures them with lots of great photographs. My granddaughter says it best:
“Whatever you do, you don’t want to miss Pumpkin Day. It’s one of the best days of all the days!”
