Mommy and Me: Country Blossom Farms Adventure

Mommy and Me: Country Blossom Farms Adventure

By Melanie Danner

As a mother of two, I’m constantly on the hunt for fun outings for our family.  This Saturday was no exception and we were excited to attend the season opening for Country Blossom Farm.  If you are itching for a tasty treat, some shopping, or outdoor activities, this is definitely a place to visit.

IMG_0671We munched on everything from delicious doughnuts and cookies to honeyberry muffins and sipped on coffee and milk.  After browsing the shop filled with crafts and goodies, several of which are locally produced, we headed outside for some energy burning fun.

After purchasing our wristbands, we headed over to scale Straw Mountain, and take several turns on the new tube slide.  Then it was time to bounce our way to the clouds on the amazing new jumping pillow.  A journey through the corn maze was next and then it was time to play in the corn pit and practice making corn angels.

Needless to say it was a fun filled morning and we enjoyed a lovely conversation with Troy Heald who owns the farm with his wife, Tracy.  We cannot wait until our next Country Blossom Farm adventure and encourage everyone to go for a visit.

Melanie Danner of Alexandria is an at-home mother and craft lover.
