One of my favorite things about Cincinnati is how quickly you can go from city to country. I was reminded of this phenomenon when we had the chance to check out Fall on the Farm at Blooms and Berries Farm Market. Located less than five minutes from the historic downtown Loveland neighborhood, Fall on the Farm at Blooms and Berries offers the chance to escape the daily grind and get lost in the charm of rural farm life – even if it’s just for a few hours! Fall on the Farm is in full swing September 19th through November 1st, and I’ve scoped it out to help you plan your trip in advance.
There are hours of fun to be had at Blooms & Berries Farm Market, where they are going above and beyond to make their guests feel safe while still making memories this Fall season. NEW this year is their online no-contact timed ticketing platform to ensure you can enjoy yourself while maintaining proper distancing. Fall on the Farm will carry the same Fall feels, while keeping the safety and health of guests at the forefront.
Other safety measures include taking no-touch temperatures for each guest, the implementation of a Clean Team to ensure sanitation everywhere on the farm and activities, and providing a spaced out layout in their Garden Center, Market Barn, and farm to ensure proper social distancing (tables cannot be pushed together!). Employees and guests are required to practice sanitation and safety measures throughout the entire farm, so we can enjoy the Fall fun together!
The Beer Garden will be open with snacks, beer, and NFL on the big screen and other games Fri-Sun every weekend. The 7-acre corn maze, fresh apple cider, pumpkin patch hayrides, farm animals, pumpkin bounce pad, cow train rides, caramel apples, duck races, fall decor, and more that you have grown to love will all be there as well – just with every safety precaution in place!
Fall on the Farm is advertised as “fun for all ages”, and it’s absolutely true.
A wide variety of activities are available for every child (and child at heart). Here are my top picks for each age group:
- Toddlers will love the hayride through the woods. Try to sit close to the tractor if you can – it’s an attraction on its own! Be sure to check out the special patch of tiny pumpkins if your littlest ones want to choose a pumpkin they can actually carry. CMC Mom Tip: Don’t miss Toddler Tuesdays – Toddlers are 1/2 off with every paying adult!
- Pre-school kids will LOVE the Spookley the Square Pumpkin path walk. If you haven’t read that book, it’s a CMC favorite, and we love that B&B have devoted an activity to it!
- School-aged kids will have a blast on the cow train! Adults can ride with smaller children, too. This age group will also love the mini corn maze!
- Older kids and adults will want to head straight to the 7-acre Knights & Dragons corn maze. This year’s maze is Pumpkin Pie themed! Scour the labyrinth to find the 5 innocent dragons. The sixth and final dragon is full of pumpkin pie and on the run! Hole-punch the dragons out as you go at each station. Then, discover who the trouble maker dragon is! Learn more about the maze here.
Other attractions include farm animals, play areas, lots of open space to run, a greenhouse with plants for sale (I’ve got all the heart eyes for the colorful mums), and – of course – lots and lots of pumpkins!
Fall on the Farm at Blooms & Berries certainly delivers all the flavors of Fall we’ve come to expect: caramel apples, fresh apple cider, popcorn, baked goods, fudge, and more! This year, they have Farmer Franks Hot Dog stand with hot dogs, brats, and a Beyond Brat (vegetarian!) along with Coke products and chips.
My boys love to get cider and ice cream! – Tara H.
I was pleasantly surprised by the number of local artisan products (edible and otherwise) for sale in the barn. Be sure to take home a few Cincinnati-made treats!
