Many people don’t realize that their food comes from a farm or that it just doesn’t appear in their local market. Miller Farms in Platteville is out to change that and show folks of all ages what happens on a real working farm. From Monday, September 6 through Tuesday, November 9 you can take part in the farm’s Fall Harvest Festival and harvest your own fresh Colorado produce.
The fall festival gives everyone the opportunity to not only explore the farm, but to also pick their own veggies!
Take a hayride through 180 acres of fields where you can pick your own vegetables — potatoes, carrots, onions, beets, Indian corn, squash, peppers and pumpkins. Not only is it fun, but educational as you put your hands into the dirt and pick fresh produce.
Cost of general admission allows each person to pick up to four (4) bags of produce each. If you pick over the 4 bag limit, each additional bag is $10 and if you don’t fill your four bags that’s okay.
Though the corn maze is gone, there are plenty of chickens and ducks to meet and a tractor “museum” to explore. Enjoy your lunch in the picnic area, where there are dozens of covered tables set up for your convenience. There are snacks, drinks and other delicious treats for sale on the weekends.
Open daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
2021 Admission Prices: Adults (14+) are $25. Children (4-14) are $15. Groups of 10+ are $20 per person. Children 4 and younger are FREE. Includes 4 bags per person to fill with produce.
