Fun fall activities aplenty at Harris Hill Farm in New Milford
The Harris Hill Farm in New Milford was a working dairy farm up until the mid-1980s. It then transitioned into a pick-your-own pumpkin farm.
The farm welcomes families on the weekends during October. They can come visit the farm animals, take a hayride and pick pumpkins in the field.
The farm also has the picnic tables at which families can relax.
They offer a variety of gourds, from mini pumpkins to jumbo pumpkins.
There is also a small corn maze that consists of corn trivia throughout. Visitors get a card with 10 questions, to which answers they will find scattered through and around in the maze on signs.
The maze is about 2 acres, so it's meant to be family-friendly and suitable for young children.
