Sweet Eats Fruit Farm, Georgetown

Sweet Eats Fruit Farm is a great place to visit during the Late Spring and Summer for big, beautiful pick your own peaches right from the tree, and they have a fun pumpkin patch each Fall, but the farm is also open year round on weekends for birthday parties, play dates, and just a little horsin’ around!

The Dog Days of Summer were upon us, and my kiddo was so restless, he just wanted to get out of the house and he begged me to visit Sweet Eats Fruit Farm!  We love going during fruit season, or early Spring when the peach trees are blooming, or even Fall during their Pumpkin Patch, but in late summer all they had was big open spaces and empty attractions, which is just what this kid needed!  Best $12 bucks I spent all summer.

The horse and pony rides are short,

The farm had a new addition, a litter of baby piglets, and they were SO cute!

In the petting pen, you can go inside and feed, pet and brush the friendly goats!

I had been obsessed all Summer with the idea of getting a young goat to keep as a pet, with the thought that it would also help keep in check the crazy vines we have growing in our back yard that no one wants to help cut back as they grow everywhere during the summer!  I had been following Rent a Rumnant and it’s crazy how fast they can clear out an overgrown area, so I thought how much fun to have a little goat around!  After about 10 minutes in the petting pen I decided that I need a little more thought on this, those little goats were just LOUD!

After playing with the goats, chickens, horses and little pigs, we headed out to see what else there was to do.  We raced rubber ducks, which is always fun!

On the farm, kids are suppose to be supervised at all times, but at 11, I can supervise from more of a distance.  I brought my book and sat back in the shade while he played on the Jumping Pad.  There are two at the farm, which was nice since one was being used for a birthday party!

They give you apples for the Sling Shots, and he fired off a couple, saving one for a snack.  He loves apples!

While he was slinging apples, I grabbed a picture of the ga-ga ball pit.

I did head into the hay maze with him, which is fun and has a little treasure chest inside if you can find it.  Here’s a hint, take some water.  We were in there for what seemed like quite a while and I was getting thirsty!

I grabbed us some more bottles of water from the concession truck after the hay maze, but you are welcome to bring your own cooler with food and water, and grabbed a nice spot in the shade while he played, again supervising him from a distance!

The farm has a nice big area for the kids to just run and explore!

And race on these!

The entire time we were at the farm, almost 3 hours, my daughter napped in one of the hammocks.  So yes, there is something for everyone at the farm.  She claimed it was a nap worthy of $12.

What is it about kids and shovels?  Skip the video games and just buy your kid a shovel and a pile of dirt!

Tire Mountain may be the most fun, where he could just run and play with the other kids at the farm!  There’s a tunnel, too!   Afterwards, I got up and cheered on the pigs in the pig race!

This cute airstream trailer is a concession stand!

While at the farm, we lucked out on seeing the sheep get sheered!  Professional sheep “sheerers” come to the farm and sheer the sheep and Harry the Alpaca!  It was pretty cool to watch as the huge coats came off.  We had recently visited an alpaca farm and I was so surprised to learn that alpacas have fleece, unlike sheep that have wool.  It is warmer and softer, and doesn’t contain lanolin, so it’s hypoallergenic.  The fleece from one alpaca with a nice color can sell for a quite a bit of money!  It was a great way to end our day at the farm!
