Tom’s Bakery will dress up their cake balls and cake pops for the season occasions such as red, white, and blue Stars and Stripes Fourth of July, creepy eyes, and ghoulish mini monsters Halloween, and snowmen faces for Christmas. The cookies get decked out as well. Miss Sarah and I enjoyed a bag of Halloween goblins to munch on – they were as delish as they were cute!
In the Cafe you’ll be dining on Tom’s fresh produce that was grown right onsite, when in season. We didn’t eat there but I peeked at their menu to see that offerings like Oatmeal, breakfast sandwich, or breakfast burritos are available for breakfast, the lunch menu is prepared fresh daily serving chicken salad croissants, turkey BLT wraps, homemade soup, and that’s just to name a few selections.
There are grab to go options in the cooler case, if you’re willing to eat on the go you can munch on chicken salad, corn salsa, pre-made salads, sandwiches, and wraps. Get a strawberry lemonade, spiced chai, iced coffee, or opt for a smoothie to go with your meal.
Tom’s Farm Market has a wonderful fall festival. The festival is fun for all ages with tractor trailer rides to the pumpkin patch, Pumpkin Express Barrel ride, climbing spider web, face painting, and inflated train. If you’ve planned a trip but the rain decided to fall take the fun indoors and build then design your own scarecrow.
*Note: several activities are only available on weekends like face painting, pony rides and barrel rides…just plan accordingly.
Take a walk through the spook free corn maze after dark, don’t forget your flashlight though because the corn maze takes on new light after dark. Explore the 7 acre corn maze with all of its twist and turns before reaching the end to discover a bonfire. You and the family can make your own s’mores with a s’mores kit while enjoying a hot apple cider, hot chocolate, or chili if it’s too tempting not to try.
You and your family will fall in love with Tom’s Farm Market, while you’re there stop by the gift shop to pick up something special for yourself or a friend. New arrivals are being unpacked daily and they have a delightful variety!
We heard a lot about the corn – so we are going home with “microwave popcorn” that seems dried on the husk. We can’t wait to try this out at home on movie night!
