We spent THREE (you read that correctly) THREE hours at this fall festival. I don’t know about you but that is probably the longest we have ever spent at one before. We probably would have spent longer but my little guy was starting to voice his dislike for being in a stroller and the heat (it was slightly warmer yesterday than a true fall day). When we go back, hopefully it will be cooler. I want to spend some time at the fire pit roasting s'mores on our next visit.
There was everything from petting zoos, hay bails, tires, and a spider web contraption to climb to hay rides, corn mazes, pig races, corn cannons, and so much more. They have some of the best kettle corn I have tasted. Usually kettle corn is good with its hint of sweetness, but this also had a nice glazed crunch. I even ate some more today and it tasted just as fresh as yesterday. There are food options there as well and plentiful bathroom facilities.
Aside from this fall festival providing lots of entertainment and activities for the whole family, Harvest Farm works in partnership with Fort Collins Rescue Mission, and both operate under the umbrella of Denver Rescue Mission. It is a fully functioning farm, has a CSA, and even beef sales. All of the work on the farm is provided by the residents of a larger long-term rehabilitation program that accommodates up to 72 men, with the goal of breaking the cycle of addiction and homelessness. It is an amazing program and the Fall Festival is their biggest fundraiser of the year. Come on out and experience this amazing Fall Festival for yourself and celebrate a program that supports growth, change, and possibility.
