October Love and Bi-Water Farm Fun

While I lean on the side of Anne of Green Gables, who surely appreciates the glory of warm apple cider donuts and heirloom gourds…I’m a boy mom.  And all that entails.

This past week, my family and I were invited to Bi-Water Farm in Georgetown, Kentucky and were treated with a wonderful experience.  The farm literally offers something for everyone: my apple cider donuts and gourds and EVERYTHING a little boy (or little boy at heart) would love.

Here’s a quick list of what’s available for the kiddos:

-Pumpkin Warrior Contest (think American Ninja Warrior for kids) – Spooky Farmhouse – Pirates Cove (sandboxes/tunnels/and the fastest slide around!) – Trike Track – Barnyard Babies (as adorable as it sounds) – Pumpkin Vine Zip Lines (perfect for older primary age kids) – Lil Pumpin Playpatch (my 2 year old loved pretending to drive a wooden train) – Soybean Maze (for those of us intimidated of corn mazes) – Bird House (yay for fancy chickens!!) – Bunnyville (one of my favorites) – Cowboy Corral (rocking horses for the young and old!) – Billy Goat Mountain (hillbilly hearts swoon) – 5 Acre Corn Maze – Hayrides – Sky High Slide – People Spinners (think human hamster wheel) – Biwater Ballpark (you know my guys loved that one!) – Bounce Around Corral – Lil Farmer Play Acre (an educational corner to learn about bees/crops).

   

For a small extra price, enjoy these favorites:

-AutumnFest Express (Or as W calls it, “The Tractor-Train!”) – Dinosaur Dig – Pumpkin Cannon (Ridiculously fun) – Paintball – Minigolf – Bonfires

 

As we continue on our Preschool-at-Home adventure, Bi-Water Farm offered plenty of learning experiences where the boys could see/taste/touch/hear/smell a working farm.  We focused on the role of bees in pollination for pumpkins and the “lifecycle” of a pumpkin.  I hope we planted seeds of appreciation for all the hard work farmers do, and definitely cultivated a desire to keep exploring their Old Kentucky Home.

Like Anne of GG said, “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”  Of course, I enjoy pumpkin spice and everything nice, but my boys have taught me to enjoy all the snips, snails, and billy goat tails (and especially pumpkin canons…). 😉

A big THANK YOU to the wonderful and friendly staff at Bi-Water Farm.  Please, go check them out and bring home a beautiful pumpkin or some tasty farm products from their general store.  It’d be a great way to spend the morning before a Cats game.  AutumnFest is going on now through Oct 31.  Go to https://biwaterfarm.com to start planning your trip now.  And tell them Neena sent you!

My parents– Ball-Ball and Gigi–joined us for the day 🙂

Love,
Neena

  1. Loved your “sweet” message and to learn more about Georgetown—such a lovely place…spent the weekend there too with my family of Hamiltons…the “football” Hamitons that are cousins of your dad…October is special and so are you, Neena…

  2. Oh wow!! It’s seems like a child’s fall paradise but also a place the family can enjoy together! Looks like a great time was had by all!
