The Berry Farms reopens for fall harvest (includes video story)

Spooky season is here! And there’s no better way to get in the Halloween spirit than a day at the farm.

This fall season, you can pick out the perfect pumpkin at The Berry Farms, located at 13730 SW 216 St. in Miami. The farm is celebrating its seventh anniversary and is ready to welcome back autumn lovers.

Visitors can find activities such as hayrides, sunflower picking, and photoshoots. For the little ones, playground areas are also offered. On Fridays, guests are welcome to bring their dogs on the farm.

After enjoying all the fun, visitors are able to chow down on strawberry sundaes, bacon burgers, and even homemade pies. But make sure to some space for more food, because the farm also has a farmer’s market, with a variety of produce for your take-home needs.

“I’m really into superfoods and stuff. I heard they have all these dragon fruits, all these different fruits you can eat and pick from, so that really interested me,” shared visitor Lucas Zapata.

Visitors are encouraged to use face masks and hand sanitizers. Sanitation stations can be found on every table, which employees wipe down every 30 minutes. And it’s not only the Harvest Fest happening — The Berry Farms will also be hosting their very first Halloween event this month.

A night-time event is scheduled for October 30 and 31 with a spooky corn maze, trick or treating, a costume contest and other surprises.  Admission can be purchased on Floridaberryfarm.com for $25. You can find more ticketing details on The Berry Farm’s Facebook page.
