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 4 through mid-November, 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.
Besides the hayride that takes you to the fields to harvest, there are tons of other activities for you and the kids.
There’s a giant “Croc-pit” (imagine thousands and thousands of chopped-up Crocs in a giant pile-o-fun), corn maze, play areas, antique tractors, peddle tractors, a hay pyramid, farm animals, and a collection of oddities and activities.
There are snacks, drinks and other treats for sale on the weekends.
Open daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
2023 Admission Prices: Everyone (11+) is $25 per person. Children (5-10) are $15 per person. Groups of 10+ are $20 per person. Children 4 and younger are FREE. Includes 4 bags per person to fill with produce.
