Enchanted Acres In North Central Iowa Offers Fun For The Whole Family

OK~ Fall is knocking on our doorsteps and it's no secret that pumpkin harvesting will begin soon. I was part of a group of bloggers that were recently invited to visit Enchanted Acres, located near Sheffield, Iowa. Enchanted Acres is family fun wrapped up into a sliver of paradise in North Central Iowa. Kids of all ages love goats- come to Enchanted Acres and you may even find yourself posing with one of these in front of a camera!

The pumpkin patch awaits you and your family. You can pull a wagon and head out into the pumpkin patch to find yours, or you can choose one from the selection of already harvested pumpkins. Family fun activities are featured throughout the season. We made Pumpkin Pie In A Bag and I might add, if you are someone that works with kids, this makes a GREAT project for the whole group. Teamwork, as well as fun, make for a fantastic Fall dessert!

And the end product looked like this and tasted OHHHHH so good! 

The events for the 2014 Fall Season started September 4th and continue through November 2nd. Several story time sessions are included this Fall, which include Dr. Suess, Charlie Brown, Frankenstein, The Lorax, and Mickey & Minnie. Keep in mind, this is just a small portion of what's happening out at Enchanted Acres this Fall.

Fall Mums, as well as unique Fall d├ęcor are also available for purchase. How would this look in your yard?

Chickens from Hoover's Hatchery are also on site! We were welcomed by day old baby chickens on the day we visited. It will be fun to watch the growth of these chickens throughout the Fall season.

Locally made products, as well as home grown produce is also available for purchase. Take a swing through The Market to see what might interest you. If you are having a little problem accepting the fact that Fall is right around the corner, I'd suggest you visit Enchanted Acres. as you will be ready to embrace Fall and appreciate all it has to offer! 

A new addition this year is the fire pit. The fire pit is available for rent, for $25 an hour, with firewood provided. With comfortable seating for 12, this area is sure to be a huge hit! And just in case you are looking for some fun foods to cook over the fire pit, Enchanted Acres has you covered with all of their party add ons! From s'mores to pizza pies, you can have it all.

Enchanted Acres is located at 1071 250th Street, 4 miles West of Sheffield or 2 Miles East of I-35. Plan now to visit, as Fall 2014 is happening now! Be sure to follow Enchanted Acres on Facebook for the day to day happenings around the pumpkin patch.
