September 10th, 2018 by


School has started, Starbucks has released its Pumpkin Spice Latte, and the temperatures are starting to drop. Fall is on its way in Arlington Heights. In the beautiful Midwest, there is no better place to enjoy everything that encapsulates fall than a local farm. Check out our list of the best local farms to visit this fall and plan a family trip today!

Richardson Adventure Farm

Situated in Spring Grove, this farm is worth the drive. Richardson Adventure Farm is home to the World’s Largest Corn Maze featuring 9-10 miles of trails through 28 acres of corn. The intricate designs they create are a sight to behold, and the trails contain games that can last a few minutes to a couple hours. Once you are done with the corn maze you can grab a homemade donut and take on the other adventures like:

  • Ziplining
  • Zorbing
  • 100-foot Slide

They also offer a petting zoo and the Clucktastic Chicken Show for younger visitors.

Volkening Heritage Farm at Spring Valley

For a completely different farm experience visit Volkening Heritage Farm at Spring Valley. This farm takes you back to a time in the 1880’s when Schaumburg was a farming community. Interpreters in authentic costumes welcome visitors and invite you to take part in activities like 1880’s style games and seasonal farm chores. This is the perfect farm to enjoy the silence and rustic beauty of old Schaumburg.

Prairie Wind Family Farm

Prairie Wind Family Farm is a certified organic farm that is nestled on 40 acres in Grayslake. Prairie Wind Farm doesn’t have the bells and whistles of some of the other farms on this list, but they are a beautiful farm boasting quality produce or eggs through their CSA. You can also volunteer at the farm to harvest produce for local food pantries or attend other seasonal events.
