Fall Fun Festival at Gaver Farm in Mt. Airy, MD


Gaver Farm was about a 40min drive for us (60min with the scenic route), but decidedly worth the drive. We could have picked our own pumpkin, had we not done so last weekend, and they also had a lot more activities for the little one than Larriland Farm.

The farm has many attractions, but here were some of our favorites…

The Jumping Pillow was probably my favorite! We were bouncing all over the place and the girls loved it.

They had several mazes of varying difficulty there. The girls walked through the Straw Bale Maze.

Ellie was mostly interested in pulling out the straw.


There was a small covered silo filled with corn to play in, with cups and toy trucks. The corn felt cool to walk around on.

We, eventually, left after some under-supervised children started flinging the corn around.


I’m pretty sure I sprained my thumb on this slide, totally my fault. Not only is that a lame way to hurt yourself, but I don’t need picking up babies to be difficult! Oh well, it is what it is. Regardless, this was an awesome slide.


It appeared that they had a snack bar that is open on the weekends. So, if you come on a weekday pack a lunch. Even with several school groups there, picnic tables were available.

Another note if you are coming on a weekday, keep in mind that the adult-child ratio leaves a little to be desired, so you will be dealing with kids running amok and disobeying rules. I figure if you come on the weekend, there will be more parents per child and less craziness. At least, that’s my hypothesis.

I look forward to doing more there as she gets older, especially the CORN MAZE! (We are a big corn maze family). What should we do tomorrow?
