It’s been fall for awhile here already. In fact, less than a week after we moved here it went from hot to cool overnight one night, and fall hasn’t looked back since! It’s actually pretty nice to be in the slightly cooler weather, although I do need to remember to dress more “Swiss” when I got out- meaning wearing layers at all times because the weather can change quite quickly from one part of the day to the next!
To celebrate fall, we went to Jucker Farm a few weekends ago for their fall festival! Honestly, I was wondering if I would be able to find something like this here, because we always did apple picking and fall festivals in Philly, so I was happy to find this one! Just a note- if you are from the area and plan to visit you should know that parking is very limited, as stated on their website, and it might just be better to take the train in. We ended up having to park at the train station anyways, and they have a shuttle bus from the station to the farm for CHF 4- round trip!
Their giant pumpkin, which was going to compete for weight on the 4th of October. They also had piles of pumpkins of all sizes for sale, so you could pick out your perfect fall decor!
They also had a few animals around you could feed and pet. All the kids were feeding the goats with hay from the ground, so of course Carter had to follow suit!
Every year they do a different them and this years theme was the circus, so they had pumpkin scultpures all around the farm representing the circus theme.
They had a lot of great food, as well as a fire pit you could roast sausages in! There was also an apple tree maze, hay stack for the kids to play in (you can see it in the above picture) and plenty of pumpkins and delicious apples for sale!
