From its beginnings in 1922 as a hundred-acre tobacco farm, Page Farms has evolved into
For a mere price of 7 dollars a person, families can visit the farm, travel through a corn maze, take a hay ride, and pick the perfect pumpkin.
Patrons are allowed to roam deeper into the farm moments after paying. Almost immediately, visitors are greeted by a grassy clearing that features rope swings, picnic tables and a play ground made completely from hay bails.
This area is perfect for a family picnic, or a moment of relaxation while awaiting the next hay ride.
The hay ride, driven by a nice old farmer man, may move slowly, but provides a perfect peek into the beauty of the 100 acre farm. The hay tends to find its way into the clothing of riders, but a few hours of itchy clothes is well worth it.
All farm visitors should definitely set aside ten minutes to take this scenic yet rickety hayride.
The corn maze is also a must when visiting the farm in October.The corn maze offers two acres of twists, turns and forks in the road, making it a tedious but enjoyable activity to do with family and friends. However, the corn maze sucks up a good bit of time for those directionally challenged.
Prominently, the farm hosts a colorful, overstocked pumpkin field. Starting in late September, pumpkins can be found all over Raleigh. However, choosing a pumpkin on the side of Leesville Road or from the display outside of the grocery store does not compare to plucking a pumpkin straight from roots. Families will love perusing the field for the perfect sized pumpkin to carve and place on the front porch.
For all those in search of a great fall activity, Page farms guarantees a good time for people of all ages.
