FALL FUN: LEWIS FARMS
One of my favorite places in the world is Pentwater, MI. I have been visiting my aunt's house in the small town of Pentwater ever since I was little, and my family and I make it a point to go every year during the fall and during the summer. While summer in northern Michigan at the lake can't be beat, fall is also an incredible time to drive up north. My family and I take the drive to see the trees burst into color, have some hot cider, and pick some pumpkins. For the past several years, we have visited Lewis Farms - a family-friendly farm with lots to do!
Location, Location, Location
Lewis Farms is located about 35 minutes from my aunt's house in Pentwater, MI. Pentwater is a small town, so if you visit Pentwater and plan to visit Lewis Farms, the drive will likely be about that amount of time. That might seem like a bit of a drive, but it goes by quickly if you put down the windows and play your favorite tunes while you breath in the crisp fall air and take in the vibrant fall colors of the trees. It's a wonderful way to take in the change of season and get in the fall spirit.
So Much to Offer
The slightly longer drive is also worth it because once you arrive, Lewis Farms has more to do than smaller fall farms that might only offer you a cup of cider and a small pumpkin patch. Lewis Farms offers a whole shop with hot apple cider, apple cider slushies, different types of donuts, homemade fudge, pie and ice cream. They also have an extensive pumpkin patch, a huge apple orchard, and petting zoo. Lewis Farms has something for everyone and provides an experience for a day that the whole family will love.
Each year, my family and I return to this farm for a reason - we have been able to make so many wonderful memories together from our traditions of getting donuts and apple cider, visiting the petting zoo, and finally picking out the perfect pumpkins to carve. (It's also a great place to snap some Insta-worthy pics for the gram!) I recommend a visit to Lewis Farms whether it's just for the day or to make it a traditional visit for years to come.
