There’s no better way to enjoy a fall day with the kids than to visit a farm, take a hayride, pick some pumpkins and enjoy the great outdoors. You don’t have to head to the wilds of Sussex County or Upstate New York to experience autumn pleasures. In fact, families with kids anywhere in the New York City area can find wonderful farms and fall fun, all within easy driving distance!
These farms offer hayrides and more and are located right in Bergen County, New Jersey, just 30-minutes from Manhatten!
