My absolute favorite thing about fall is heading out to spend a day on a farm! I love to be able to just let my kids run and play, and have fun together! With big open areas, and plenty to do, Robinson Farm is a great place to spend a Fall Day!
Thanks to The Robinson Family Farm for inviting us out! While they provided us with complementary admission, I was not financially compensated for this post. As always, all opinions, are my own. And my kid’s. And my husband’s. And you get the point.
First off, I love the Temple area! I like to stick to the back roads, and it’s a wonderful weekend drive, passing plenty of cows, hay fields, cotton patches and even slowed down to admire it all as we passed a guy on a tractor! Best of all, with fields of grass, and a softly rolling terrain dotted with trees, you get some amazing views! We stopped once or twice just to look at some cows!
From the moment you arrive at The Robinson Family Farm, you do get the feeling of being invited to someone’s farm for the weekend, minus the chores! I loved walking into the little farm house to purchase tickets and ask questions, and that we were greeted by Mr. Robinson! While my husband and kids looked through the gift shop, I was able to pick up our wristbands, which allow you unlimited access to the games, hay rides, maze and much more!
Duck Races are always a fun farm activity, and a great reminder to be thankful for your kitchen faucet at home!
A big orange bounce is a perfect way to let the kids burn off some of that energy!
Here’s a Tip, take a wagon! It makes it easy to put all the things you brought with you, and extras, like pumpkins, that you are taking home!
You’re going to need your hands free for all the cute pictures!
I think these should be named “Onion Pumpkins” because that’s what it looked like from across the field!
They had pumpkins of all shapes and sizes! Rough pumpkins, colored pumpkins and many little gourds! Best of all, when you purchase a pumpkin, they have wheelbarrows and handy people to carry it out to your car for you!
Enter the Corn Maze!
We absolutely LOVE Corn Mazes!
At Robinson Family Farm, you’re given a card to punch when you find each of the different shapes, then you turn it in for a prize at the end! It took us about 15 minutes.
Take your water in with you!
Just a few of the cute photo ops that no one in my family would sit for!
You’re NEVER too old for a Barrel Train Ride!
After visiting The Robinson Family Farm I’ll never look at a sandbox the same way again!
Because their’s is filled with feed corn!!
Obviously the kids loved it!
And since I had to shed my shoes and walk around in it, let me tell you it’s terrific! A completely different sensory experience than sand! And SO cool!
Since my son wasn’t about to get out of the cornbox, and my older two were playing a competitive game of tetherball, my husband and I took a few minutes to walk over to the food stand to get a drink to share under the covered tables! A southern breeze felt good while sitting in the shade!
They had hot dogs, popcorn, and lemonade.
They have fun games, such as the corn cannons, and yard games like washers and corn hole!
We loved the ride around on the hay wagon, too!
We had fun feeding the little goats. The goat feed takes change, so be sure to bring some quarters with you!
Before we finished our day on the farm, we headed back into the Farm House to look at some of the cute, handmade gifts!
The Haunted Corn Maze is a one night event, happening on October 31st! Find your way out of the corn maze in the dark! Buy your tickets online, and Good Luck!
