Fall. It’s pretty. It’s sweater weather. It’s pumpkin everything. Admit it- you LOVE busting out your plaid, having a PSL in hand, and doing super cheesy fall things like jumping in to pile of leaves and filming it in slow-mo.
We do, too. And we ain’t afraid to admit it!
We’re sharing our fall day with you, BabyLovebird in tow. It’s great for everyone- couples, families, and besties. Get the itinerary here:
Apple Picking and Hayrides: Becker Farms- Gasport, NY
Up in country territory, Becker Farms has grown from a small cute farm to a destination filled with craft beer, donuts, apple picking, pumpkins, and winery. Dang. We drove up north to start with the apples- you pay only $5 to get access to the orchard experience which includes a hayride to the apple, a 4 quart bag to pick them, and apple education. A Family pack is $20 for 5 bags worth.
There is a ton of things for adults and kids including petting zoos, bounce house, goat races (yep), a haunted hayride, and a pumpkin patch.

Pumpkin Everything: The Great Pumpkin Farm- Clarence, NY
The ultimate pumpkin patch is here. You can find any size Pumpkin, super warty gourds, and a corn maze. Each weekend is a different festival with fun family things to do. The place is huge so plan on spending a good chunk of time here. Make sure you get a pick sitting on the benches amongst the pumpkins and make your kid do a pony ride.

Apple Cider & Donuts: Mayer Brothers Cider Mill- West Seneca, NY
Our ultimate fav spot each fall for cider is (obviously) Mayer Brothers. Right off Transit, you can spot the beautiful red building that is perfect for a selfie or filtering the heck out of an Americana exterior shot.
The small shop has Donuts, pies, soup mix, old school candy, and of course- cider. A great deal is the Harvest Pack for $21. You get a pie, a dozen donuts, and one gallon of cider. Make sure before you leave, you grab a couple apple cider slushies.

Fall is a wonderful time of year to spend time with family and friends, especially doing fun outdoor things like picking apples, corn mazes, and buying pumpkins from a big or local stand to take home and carve. We can’t wait to continue making more of these places in to traditions for our family!
