The Brooksby farm is beautiful place to go for a day trip with the family. It was perfect timing with the fall foliage and the kids enjoyed the day here. We will always return.

Very poor compared to last year. Less effort on the kids area, far far fewer pumpkins available, aggressive signage, and miserable looking staff. Sad, because I’ve been coming here for years. We won’t be hurrying back.
