  • This is just a wide Bluemont farm. That the farm only, or their livestock, or harvest seasons are comprehensively equipped children's playground.

  • It's a great place to take kids! I went here with my son and his family. People talk about the entrance fee, but to be truthful, it's not very much. But here is have to say that we went prepared to pa...  more »
  • Took my kiddos here last weekend at the beginning of the fall season. My suggestion would be to get there early, especially if you have kiddos, to take full advantage of everything that the farm has t...  more »

  • Great place on those beautiful spring and fall sunny Virginia days, to just hang out and let the kids play and feed the animals. Then up the hill to the winery or brewery for amazing views and a drink.
  • Our family visits there once or twice a year. We love their playground but not the u-pick products. Peaches, apples, potatoes, and blueberries that we had so far are never really fully grown but you are charged so pricey anyway. So if you don't mind spending $10/person and want your kids drained, this place is okay for a short weekend outing.
  • This place is entirely free for military families (with ID) and perfect for kids under 6. They had a separate line for us and we zoomed past the long ticket line. We went the one weekend they had both apple and pumpkin picking this year, which really made the hour drive from Northern VA worth it. There were lots of playgrounds, tractors, livestock and a "cow train" for the kids as well as live music. Cow train rides are a couple dollars cash and there wasn't an ATM on property that I saw. There were no big slides like Cox farms, so if you like those then this isn't your place. The one restaurant that served lunch had a line out the door, but lots of families had brought picnics and blankets. We'll do that next time. We were able to piece together lunch from the apples we'd picked and snacks from the farm store. We'll be back!
  • Across from Bluemont winery, this site ha a large assortment of local food items. From meats to fresh vegetables and fruits, it's a great experience for kids to pick their own.
  • We will visit here regularly. It's just over an hour from DC so it's a bit of a drive, but the weekend drive is relaxing and this place is more relaxing than any vacation you can take with young kids. I'd wager that you and the kids (and maybe even the dog) can spend hours or even the entire day here and everyone will leave happy. Depending on the season, you can pick apples, beans, pumpkins, and/or other fruits/veggies, but there's so much more to do than that. There are all kinds of farm animals to see and feed, a catch and release pond, really neat playgrounds including an obstacle course, really unique swings and slides, a bouncy area, a big sandbox filled entirely with corn, a great climbing hill, rope swings for adults/older kids, and other fun stuff that kids will absolutely love. We planned to go just to get a pumpkin and a few apples and ended up staying for hours. Our toddler had a blast, and we did too. And yes, the cider donuts are ridiculously good too.
