Are you ready for some Fall fun? The seasons are changing again and Fall is just made for making amazing memories with family and friends. A day spent picking apples or berries, bouncing along on hayrides to pumpkin patches, shopping for cute crafts, exploring a corn maze…
Be sure to bring your camera, because you’re going to want to remember these smiles! Be sure to check our calendar for dates and times of fall festivals and special events, plus here’s your guide to Morgan County’s very best fall attractions:
Anderson Orchard, Mooresville
Also a purveyor of the amazing cider slushie, Anderson Orchard offers already picked or pick-your-own apples, plus you-pick red raspberries that are generally available well into October. Hop aboard the hay wagon for a trip to the pumpkin patch and be sure to leave time for the kids to climb the mountain of straw bales before you leave! The concession stand offers lots of choices, so be sure to take a look (I recommend the fried apple pie with ice cream). Open every day from 8 am to 8 pm (or dark). Special events include their annual Apple Festival and Craft Fair and a kid-friendly Octoberfest!
Gregory's Orchard, Mooresville
Stop in for a cider slushie, browse through cute fall décor items, pick up a bag of your favorite apples and maybe a pumpkin or two! Gregory's Orchard has been in business since 1926, a true Morgan County tradition. Also visit the adjacent Orchard Country Store before you leave.
Hunter’s Honey Farm, Martinsville
With the honey harvest complete for the year, fall is really a great time to visit Hunter’s Honey Farm to learn about how bees make honey and all the other great things we get as byproducts of that honey production. Schedule a tour for your group – there’s no minimum group size – and create a custom experience: tour the honey barn, see a live hive demonstration, candle dipping demonstration, make your own candle or bottle your own “honey bear” to take home! Don't miss their Harvest Celebration on September 15!
Greendell Landscape Solutions, Mooresville
Each year, in addition to their normal variety of plants, trees and outdoor décor items, Greendell hosts a Fall Festival that runs the entire month of October. Climb onto a hay wagon to visit their four-acre pumpkin patch and themed corn maze for some family fun! Be sure to leave extra time for all the fun outdoor games and activities that are available - like giant Jenga and checkers. See their website for pricing and other details. Open Monday through Saturday from 8 am to 5 pm and Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm. Don't miss the corn maze at night, October 26-27!
Grandpa Jeff's Trail Rides, Morgantown
This family-owned trail riding facility is open year-round, but fall is one of the very best times to explore the Morgan County scenery on horseback. You'll see the changing of the seasons first hand, with colorful leaves, signs of wildlife preparing for winter and more. Schedule a trail ride for riders of any ability level, or get a big group of friends together for a nighttime campfire experience, complete with s'mores!
