Head to Lowell Ranch on Sept. 29 for hayrides, pumpkin picking, and much more! 

Old-fashioned farm fun awaits you just south of Castle Rock at this Douglas County tradition.

All ages will love to pick their own pumpkins off the vine, harvest veggies and herbs, and more on a real working, historical farm that was homesteaded in 1878. This authentic agriculture experience at the Colorado Agricultural Leadership Foundation’s (CALF) Lowell Ranch is a day of not only entertainment but education for all ages, as well.

Kids and adults alike will love to interact with all the animals that live at Harvest Day. In addition, there will be vendors, music, exhibits, concessions, and baked goods for sale. Admission and parking are free (some activities are fee-based).

And what is a harvest day without a hayride? Yep, this event’s got ‘em, as well as Percheron-drawn carriage rides, and so many more fall activities.

The event is just one of many that CALF holds to help connect people to agriculture.

“CALF connects people of all ages and abilities to agriculture through authentic educational programs and community projects.  Our goal is to help people experience agriculture and better understand the importance of agriculture in everyday life,” the organization says.

With help from those that support events like Harvest Day, CALF can provide housing for 4-H and FFA livestock projects, conduct educational programs for thousands of elementary school students each year, and improve the understanding about the importance of agriculture in everyday life.

Come out, pick a pumpkin or two, and have some harvest fun for the whole family while supporting a good cause!
