GOODBYE SUMMER, HELLO FALL! Fall is my absolute favorite season. Pumpkin carving, crisp fall air, scary movies, apple picking, and everything pumpkin flavor are all the things I look forward to. There are so many fun things with friends and family you can do during this time of year. Luckily for us, we got to take a trip down to the Rinkel Pumpkin Farm in Glen Carbon, IL.

The Rinkel Pumpkin Farm is owned by the Rinkel family. Their very own farm contains lots of home grown pumpkins ranging with various sizes, farm animals such as goats, pigs, cows, and sheep that we got to feed, corn mazes that I personally love, a barrel train for the little ones, and many more! They have their own store where you can buy home decor, T-shirts, and snacks. For the admission, three years old and younger are free, 65 years or older are $4 each, other ages are $5 per person, and an all day pass is $15.

My friends and I got the opportunity to visit the Rinkel Pumpkin Farm. We started off our day with feeding the animals. This had to be my favorite part because I love animals! They were all friendly and interactive with us. All of the animals loved people, especially the kids. Then we went through the corn maze. It only took us about 5 minutes to find the end. There are many signs in the corn maze to help you along the way which definitely helped us not get lost! Then we took lots of pictures with a cute display they had set up. We ended our day by picking out our very own pumpkins. There are so many sizes and colors you can choose from. PICK ME, PICK ME!

We all had an awesome time at the Rinkel Pumpkin Farm. Everyone was so friendly and inviting. This place really gets you in that fall mood, which makes the process even more fun! If you are thinking about taking a trip to the farm, I highly recommend it! If you would like more information about the Rinkel Pumpkin Farm, click the links below! HAPPY PUMPKIN SPICE SEASON!
