Miller Farms’ Fall Harvest Festival

3 Oct

Who they are, what they do, and event detail

Miller Farms, located near Longmont Colorado, sells their produce at their own roadside market and attends farmers markets along the Front Range, including our own Cheyenne farmer’s market. Over the years they have incorporated agricultural tourism. As a result their annual Fall Harvest Festival has become the farms’ most popular festival to date. The festival gives the public a behind the scenes look at what happens on a real working farm; not only can you explore the farm, but you also harvest your own vegetables from potatoes, carrots, onions, beets, Indian corn, squash, peppers, pumpkins and more. In addition, there are a variety of great activities you can enjoy while visiting the farms such as:

  • Petting zoo
  • Giant jumping pillow
  • Corn maze
  • Antique tractors
  • Fire truck
  • Hay pyramid

If you decide to stay after the sun goes down the farms offer a haunted hayride. The corn maze becomes a scary thrill and leads to a haunted house. Limited details are given on the haunted attractions as they regularly change throughout the season to keep patrons guessing and coming back for more.
