Fall brings along beautiful cool and crisp weather, fall foliage, and the seasonal challenge of stepping on all the crunchy leaves you can find.  To me, I look to fall as a reprieve from the chaos of spring and hot summer; a grace period to enjoy while before the holiday season begins.

Personally, apple picking, pumpkin bread, and warm apple cider are just a few of the things I love about fall.  To me, it’s special because they are traditions I have with my friends and family.  I only get to enjoy them for a small part of the year, and thus they make me appreciate how far I’ve come, and what I look forward to in the future.

Every fall, I make a trip out to the Triadelphia Lake View Farm in Glenelg, MD.  It’s been amazing to have grown up coming to the same locally owned farmland year after year.  On the farm, there are patches of Christmas trees in preparation for December, vegetables and strawberries for picking, but more importantly: pumpkins.  Of course, a trip in the spirit of fall would be incomplete without the fun of a hay ride, so TLV Farm offers a hayride to and from the pumpkin patch.  You can also find many of the farm’s other fall products and produce inside.  Only a couple yards away are barns full of farm animals for a great experience for the entire family!   The views on the farm are truly amazing, not to mention the beautiful drive on the two-lane roads of picturesque Western Howard County.  This family-friendly farm is a must-see for kids and adults alike looking for a fun and worthwhile activity to do this fall.  The farm is located at 15155 Triadelphia Mill Road, Glenelg, MD 21737.  If you have any more questions, TLV Farm can be contacted at (410) 489-4460 and

Another great family friendly fall activity can be found at the Larriland Farm in Western Howard County.  This family owned farm offers families to come and “pick your own fruits” and vegetables.  You can come for a great day of berry picking or apple picking, if the time is ripe.  For the kids, there are tons of things to keep them occupied including a maze, as well of displays of some of the produce from the latest harvest.  You can visit the website (link above) to learn more about hours of operation, and other general information.  The farm can be reached at (410) 442-2605.  The farm is located at 2415 Woodbine Road, Woodbine, MD 21797.

Here are some of other locally owned farms in Howard County:

Whatever tradition you have for the fall, whether it be football, music, shopping, or going for a hike out in the crisp air, take this fall as an opportunity, to explore that place you’ve always wanted to explore, or try something new you’ve always wanted to try.  Go.  Do.  See.  Be.
