Just a county over there is a pumpkin patch that has grown into a major attraction for community members and visitors alike. Timothy and Brandy Chandler of Elkview have turned their farm into a must-do visit with the family.
There is something for all ages, from stick barrel horse racing, rubber ducky races, sack races, bow and arrows, and a variety of playplaces to enjoy including a tractor playhouse that is a must for the little ones. The views on this farm are something out of a magazine, making it a go-to spot for family pictures.
As the kids are running around, enjoying all the farm has to offer, be sure to grab some pulled pork nachos or pick from a variety of treats at the concession stand. Before you leave for the day, stop by the pumpkin patch and pick the perfect gourd to decorate.
