Disclosure: I was given free tickets for me and my family to visit Vineyard 354 in exchange for this post. Regardless, all opinions are mine.
I love fall; the leaves, the smells, and the bonfires. And we love to visit pumpkin patches!
Last weekend we visited Vineyard 354 Family Farm in Lawton, Michigan. The vineyard offers Family Fall Harvest Days every Saturday and Sunday from September 13 – October 25.
As soon as we pulled into the parking lot I could smell the sweet aroma of grapes filling the country air. The smell was something I can’t begin to explain.
We spent a few minutes looking around the market to see what they had to offer. There were a variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, gourds, and pumpkins available to purchase. They also had hot dogs, caramel apples, and donuts cooking in the kitchen. I was told their ready-to-bake pies and Grandma Dar’s pickles are something special and attract repeat customers.
We rode the hay ride to the activities. The staff was very friendly, knowledgeable, and interactive. Along the way, farmer John taught us a little bit about the history of the vineyard and growing concord grapes. Vineyard354 is a proud grower for Welches.
There was much to do when we got to the activity area. The kids played games such as yard darts, bowling, bean bag toss, and more.
The boys enjoyed playing in the giant bounce houses, crawling through the tunnels, finding their way through the hay mazes, and digging for gems. There favorite part was riding the train though.
We really enjoyed our time at Vineyard 354 Family Farm and plan on coming again next year! I would highly recommend Vineyard 354 Fall Harvest Days to anyone with children 10 and under. A big thank you to LA for taking the pictures for this post.
