Fall Festival at Huckleberry Trail Farm!

— Written By

The Fall Festival Season at Huckleberry Trail Farm has begun! There are so many awesome activities awaiting visitors to the farm: hayrides, corn maze, pumpkin patch, cotton patch, plus lots of fun old-timey games. There’s even a nighttime Escape Maze for the truly adventurous!

The farm is open every Saturday and Sunday from now until the last weekend in October. Hours are 10 a.m.-6 p.m. on Saturdays and 1-6 p.m. on Sundays. The farm is located on Hwy 64 between Pittsboro and Siler City.

In addition to the weekend Fall Festivals, Huckleberry Trail Farm also hosts school groups, birthday parties, corporate events, and other group outings on Thursdays and Fridays by reservation.

One of the things that sets Huckleberry Trail Farm apart from many other agritourism farms is that farmer Bob Reichel actually grows his own pumpkins! Many other agritourism farms buy pumpkins and bring them in for their events. But at Huckleberry Farm you can actually pick the one you want and cut it from the vine yourself!

Huckleberry Trail Farm also supports local organizations. The opening weekend for their Fall Festival was a fundraiser for the Autism Society of North Carolina. And on October 5-6 Teachers, First Responders, Doctors, Nurses, Caregivers and Military Service personnel (former and current) are admitted free with a paid admission (must show an official ID). Farmer Bob Reichel is also proud to have created an opportunity for local high school kids to get their first jobs, working as farmhands during the Fall Festival.

Huckleberry Trail Farm is conveniently located right on Hwy 64 just a few miles west of Pittsboro, and a short drive from the Triangle area.
