As temperatures began to cool down and pumpkins start to appear on neighborhood porches, parents and kids want to get outside and enoy Fall. Nash Farm in Grapevine has just the answer for families wanting to partake in fall activities in the great outdoors. Every fall, the Grapevine Heritage Foundation hosts a fall festival for families at the city’s oldest farm. Nestled deep in suburbia, Nash Farm was founded in 1859 by the Thomas Jefferson Nash family. Today the farmhouse (built around 1880) has been refurbished and the farm earnestly welcomes visitors. Several of the original barns and farm equipment can still be found at this city landmark, as well as the Nash family’s personal cemetery.
Stop by Nash Farm on Saturday October 10th from 10am to 2pm to enjoy a variety of fall-themed activities. Families can take a hayride, enjoy a petting zoo, test their stick pony barrel racing skills or enjoy one of the many arts and crafts stations situated on the farm’s grounds. There will also be blacksmith and historical plowing demonstrations for crowds to enjoy. The Grapevine AMBUCS will be selling concession items, including hot dogs and hamburgers for visitors to enjoy. Admission to the farm and all events are free to the public.
This Saturday unwind from a fast-paced work week and step back in time at Grapevine’s Nash Farm. Enjoy the fall season at the Nash Farm Fall Round-up.
