Hop Aboard a Self-Driven Hay Ride at Cox Farms


If you’re not feeling particularly festive this fall, you can turn that frown upside down by spending a day at Cox Farms. While their annual Fall Festival is closed this year, they have plenty of autumn activities, like a self-driven hayride and their drive-through fall market. 

An experience they’ve never promoted before, the self-driven hayride at Cox Farms allows visitors to take in an adapted version of their standard hayride route from the comfort and safety of their personal vehicle. The staff recommends cracking the windows for the best experience, letting in the fresh air and audio (both from the natural farm setting and the additional audio set up specifically for the tour). After your “hayride,” you can exit your car at their service area to take advantage of the farm’s various photo ops, including the fan-favorite “How tall this fall?” sign, an annual tradition for many local families. 

Be sure to place an online order for Cox Farms’ fall market before you arrive to pick up your autumn essentials, like apple butter, cider, kettle corn, and pumpkins. Like the hayride, the market is a drive-through experience this year, so you’ll pick up your goodies from the driver’s seat. But, even from the car, you can’t help but enjoy the autumn activities at Cox Farms.
