Fall is just made for making amazing family memories. Picking apples or berries, hayrides to pumpkin patches, cute crafts, even a corn maze… be sure to bring your camera, because you’re going to want to remember these smiles! Here’s your guide to Morgan County’s very best fall attractions:
Gregory 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 Orchard has been in business since 1926, a true Morgan County tradition. Also visit the adjacent Orchard Country Store before you leave.
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).
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. There are bounce houses for the kids, and when they’re tired of bouncing, climb onto a hay wagon to visit their four-acre pumpkin patch and corn maze for some family fun! The hayride is free, and the corn maze is only $8 for adults and $6 ages 5-12. This year’s maze has an Inside Out theme! Open Monday through Saturday from 8 am to 5 pm and Sunday from Noon to 5 pm. Grab a corn maze admission discount here.
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!
