Pumpkin Patch, Virginia

By Sugar Lane - 7:30 AM

Buenos días! Hoy os traigo un plan fantástico y típico de Estados Unidos. Al llegar el otoño las calabazas aquí lo invaden todo, el café, los cereales, las cupcakes, las puertas, ventanas, cuentas de Instagram... La gente las compra en granjas donde ponen un mercado, pero resulta que es mucho más que un puesto de calabazas! Quieres descubrir la que montan? Pues sigue leyendo...

Good morning! Today I'm showing you a wonderful plan, very typical from the United States. When Fall starts pumpkins take over everything; coffee, cereals, cupcakes, doors, windows, Instagram accounts... Everybody buys them from a farm market, but it's not just a simple market! Ready to discover a Pumpkin Patch? If you live in USA you know what I'm talking about, if not, keep reading...


Aquí montan un parque temático en torno a las calabazas. Nosotros fuimos a Cox Farms creyendo que era un huerto donde vendían la cosecha, y al llegar había un parking lleno de autobuses amarillos de todos los colegios de la zona y una taquilla donde venden las entradas, así que nos dimos cuenta que íbamos a vivir toda una experiencia!

Instead of a market, they set up a pumpkin theme park known as Pumpkin Patch. We went to Cox Farms thinking it will be a stall where they sell the harvest, and when we reached there was a parking lot full of yellow school buses and a counter for tickets, so we realised this was going to be quite an experience!



Al entrar hay varios decorados para que te hagas fotos sin parar!

At the entrance they have several decorations so you can take endless pictures in a rural photo call!


Después nos recomiendan no perdernos el "Hay Ride", un paseo por el campo subidos a unos remolques de paja tirados por un tractor. Atravesamos los campos de maíz, ríos y riachuelos, y decorados para los niños, que hacen el paseo muy entretenido; unos gnomos, un cementerio, una nave espacial con marcianos, brujas con sus calderos, cerditos voladores entre pompas de jabón... Hasta nos quedamos atrapados en el barro y una granjera se transformó en Super Woman para rescatarnos con sus superpoderes!

They said the Hay Ride was a must, so we jumped into a hay trailer drove by a tractor. The ride went through the corn fields, crossing rivers and steams around a lake. Along we found all kind of entertainment for the kids; gnomes, a cemetery, a spaceship with martians, witches boiling potions, flying pigs among soap bubbles... We even got stuck and a farmer turned into Super Woman to rescue us with her powers!






Al terminar el paseo en tractor nos metimos en el laberinto de maíz, con pequeños sustos al doblar cada esquina.

After the ride we went into the cornfield, with scary surprises on every turn.



También tienen un montón de toboganes que salen de los graneros y bajan por las colinas.

There were also slides coming from the barns and going down the hills.


Y un montón de animalillos; vacas con sus terneros, cerdos con sus lechoncitos, pollitos, el pavo para acción de gracias, conejos...

And many animals; cows with their calves, pigs and piglets, chickens, Thanksgiving's turkeys, rabbits...






Por si te entra hambre, además de los puestos de comida y el merendero, la entrada incluye manzanas recién cogidas y zumo de manzana para refrescarte.

In case you are hungry there are many food stalls and coffee places, and the ticket includes fresh apples and refreshing apple juice.



Y a la salida el mercado de calabazas, que aquí las distinguen en pumpkins, squash y gourds. De todos los tamaños y todos los colores, para elegir una o una docena!

The market is on the exit, with endless pumpkins, squash and gourds, in every size and color, so you can take home your favourites!
