We’ve been waiting for this — the sweater weather, pumpkin-flavored everything, and local farms visits. Trax Farms, a southwestern PA favorite, is hosting Harvest Days in September through November. It’s the perfect place to have a happy fall ya’ll!

Your ticket to Harvest Days gets you access to several different activities. Take a turn on the hayride and wander through the 3-acre corn maze. You’ll find farm animals and a pumpkin patch as well. Purchase a pumpkin or two for carving, decorating, or even baking. Satisfy your sweet tooth with a caramel apple, candy apple, or cider slushie from the Trax cafe.

Between the rolling farm fields, the pumpkin patch, and the corn maze, this is a wonderful backdrop for an ideal fall day. (And all for only $10 per ticket!)

Reservations are offered to ensure that you have a safe and festive time while at the farm. Tickets are released one week at a time, so be sure to check their website during the week that you’re planning to go. 

You have one hour from when you book your time to load the hayride wagon, so you have some flexibility when getting to the farm.

To help encourage social distancing, no more than 250 people are allowed on the hill at one time. Picnic table seating will be spaced out as well, and hand sanitizer will be available to use throughout the event. 

Looking to bring a group to the farm activities? Parties of 20 or more can call to make a reservation. And you don’t need to wait until the current week to save that spot.

Trax Farms also has a store that is open to the public. If you’re not able to purchase a ticket to Harvest Days in time, you can still stop by to pick up locally grown produce and handmade crafts at the store.
