You mean the Raleigh one, right? Or just in general?

I completely agree. Google Vollmer Farms. In Oregon we went to some pretty awesome pumpkin farms. But Vollmer Farms in Bunn is hands down THE BEST pumpkin farm we have EVER been too. They have sooooo many activities... they put the farms that have the standard hay ride & corn maze to shame. We spent 5 hours there.... we could have stayed longer but had to get back home. Next year we are staying for the bon fire! My 8 year old's favorite was the tennis ball launch ( a big sling shot thing that you shot tennis balls at targets). My 5 year olds favorite was the "Rat Races" (rolling around in irrigation tubes. My husbands favorite was the corn maze (you search for clues and get chalk colors to go on your fingers... at the end the chalk pattern gives you a fortune... there are 120 combinations). My favorite was the Corn Pit .... a HUGE sand box type thing filled full of dried corn. It was very relaxing.... now I know why they dump corn on wild horse to break them.

There were sooooo many other activities that I haven't mentioned. Go to the website and check it out. We had more fun there than we did at the State Fair last year. And the Farm is so beautiful .... rolling hills, ponds & ducks, beautiful old barns. By the end we were whistling Green Acres!!

They also grow organic strawberries and blueberries. Back in the day it was a tobacco farm and the Vollmer's realized they had to adapt to keep the family farm .... now the 5th generation is running it. It's fun and a heart warming American story to boot!!!

FWIW, since last Saturday my kids have asked us about a ZILLION times when we are going back! If you bring can goods you can get $1 off the admission. They also have a special Dog Day coming up.

Sooooo worth the drive! Oh, and you drive through beautiful Rolesville to get there. And it's just a stone's throw from Wake Forest.
