Whitehall Farms in Clifton, VA is Fairfax County's latest spot for agritourism, and is hosting Fall Fun Days on Saturdays and Sundays through the end of October. The farm has been in the Vazquez family since the 1960s and is filled with scenic pastures, beautiful woodlands, streams, and animals. Admission to the Fall Fun Days includes a large non-GMO corn maze, moonbounces for the kids, visits with farm animals (pigs, chickens, and cows,) a round-trip hayride through the woods to the farm market, cornhole and more. There are additional fees for face painting, food, feeding the farm's darling cow, Henry and picking your own pumpkin from the field (65 cents per pound.)
We were impressed by the knowledgeable farm staff, always available and eager to teach both the adults and the kids about environmentally friendly farming practices and answer questions about the farm and animals. We found the hayride through the woods serene and pleasant, with the trees as the backdrop, not tacky decorations. The overall atmosphere is more low key than some of the region's mega festivals, but here it is about visiting a working farm, interacting with the animals, learning something new, having fun and of course, picking your very own perfect pumpkin right of the vine. Here are our pictures from our visit:
