Ashland Berry Farm

With vibrant gardens and vast pumpkin fields, Ashland Berry Farm is a beautiful setting for visitors to enjoy harvesting, gardening, animals, and more. Ashland offers the Pumpkin Harvest Hayride, an interactive tour for children that lets them touch animals, learn about seed to seed planting, and take home their very own pumpkin. Visitors will tour different areas of the facility such as the pumpkin patch, Animal Corral, and 3D Boo House, where special effects for Ashland’s Haunted Evenings come to life. Children can also wander their way through The Great Pumpkin Maze. Tours are available from October 8-28.

Nature Centers Fun Facts

One single tree can provide the oxygen required for two human beings and over 8,000 sheets of paper. In the United States, we use enough office paper each year to build a 10-foot-high wall that’s 6,815 miles long. That’s more than the distance from New York to Tokyo!

Trees can also clean the soil and air by absorbing harmful pollutants. So what have you done for a tree lately? Nature centers provide a hands-on environment to discover facts about native plants and trees, as well as ways to preserve these natural resources.

Follow up your trip by planting a tree or proposing a conservation program for your group.
