Quick Picks: Brad’s showcases traditional fall corn maze and pumpkin picking

Brad’s is laid-back and exclusive while providing good time.

Stopping by Brad’s Produce is the perfect way to spend a fall afternoon.

Brad’s has everything from hayrides to a pick-your-own pumpkin patch, a corn maze, a kids’ straw maze, apples along with apple cider, hundreds of mums, straw bales, cornstalks, and gourds. They offer a huge variety of pumpkins if you’re not up for picking your own.

The corn maze is a fun, yet mildly challenging maze, to do with family and friends. The maze costs six dollars and is challenging enough to be fun, but easy enough to figure your way out. It was the perfect size, too, keeping you entertained while making sure you wouldn’t get terribly lost. Clues are provided along the way which are helpful, especially for younger kids.

After the maze, Brad’s has delicious apple cider along with an assortment of goodies located inside the store. Along with the produce, the friendly staff added to the atmosphere. Once the maze has been conquered and the apple cider has been enjoyed, pumpkin picking is the next fun activity Brad’s has to offer.

The hayride brings you right back to your childhood days and takes you to the patch where you pick your own personal pumpkin. Once you find the perfect one, the hayride can take you right back to home base.

Brad’s produce is seasonally decorated with gourds, hay bales, and an array of fresh foods. It is an ideal destination for all ages and a must see this fall.
