Kids had off school today so naturally, I decided to leave everything that needed to be done around home and find something fun to do! It was the perfect day to get out and enjoy the sunshine and fall air, so we ended up at Hawks Hill Creamery in Street, MD. I am so glad we did! We all really enjoyed our time there today.
Admission is FREE! For a small fee, you can make a scarecrow ($8), purchase pumpkins ($3 for small), paint a pumpkin ($2), or purchase food OR craft beer from Falling Branch Brewery!
The first activity that caught our eye was the corn maze. Its totally self guided, was a little bit muddy and not too big that it was impossible to figure out. We traipsed through the corn stalks and made it back out in less than 10 minutes; perfect timing for my crew.
After the corn maze, we walked over to the barn area and spotted a little area with cars, big wheels and tractors that excited Bubba to no end! It was very hard to pull him away from here! There were plenty of vehicles to keep all the kids busy and happy.
When the other kids had their fill of the cars and bikes, we coaxed Bubba away to continue our exploration. Next we hit the fun motherload: The barn! The barn held slides and hay bales to climb on, a chicken coop, a sand table filled with dried corn, pumpkin painting, a huge tube to play in, scarecrow making, basketball nets and more! We spent quite a bit of time in the barn exploring and making our scarecrow! The scarecrow was a family effort – and I must say I was not expecting to be so effected by the hay! We were all sneezing and itching after that!
Meet the newest member of the Harry clan: Joe the Scarecrow!
There’s also an area where you can pet the animals. We saw a sheep, pig, and some goats. The kids fed them some lettuce. There are hand washing stations close to the animals which is good!
Next it was time to hunt for the perfect pumpkin. Unfortunately, there were no hayrides today because it had been too muddy. So we made the best of it and pulled one of their provided wagons to the pumpkin patch. Each of the Harrys searched until they found the perfect pumpkin! There were plenty of beautiful looking pumpkins in the field. The fields were large, but we didn’t need to go far to find great pumpkins! I spent $15 on all $5 pumpkins for my kiddos and they took credit. Pretty reasonable in my opinion!
Isn’t Bubba adorable in his Baby Carhartts?!! I could not decide if it was going to be hot or cold today, and it ended up being a bit hot, but that’s what fall in Maryland is all about!
There are port a pottys and several hand washing stations for when nature calls!
Falling Branch Brewery is also located right on the farm there. They were selling drafts of their own beers that day. Had I not been by myself with the kids, I may have tried some out. What a lovely ambiance for a drink or two while the kids played!
This is the food truck that sells food and refreshments. We had already eaten before we went, so we didn’t order anything this time. The food looked yummy though, especially the ice cream!
When everyone was tuckered out and fully annoyed with how many pictures I was making them take, we decided it was time to go. We hauled our pumpkins and Joe the Scarecrow to the car (he rode shotgun!), buckled up and headed out. We spent about 3 hours there, which was more than enough time to see and do everything, but we could have lingered a little bit longer if Bubba wasn’t ready for a nap. I spent a total of $25 on everything, which for us is a steal. What a fun and gorgeous day at Hawks Hill Creamery! We will definitely be back again soon!
