Lansing Mom’s 2021 Guide to Fall In + Around Lansing


Fall is just on our doorstep and we are ready! We have everything you could possibly need to make the most out of this fall season. Whether it’s cider and donuts, pumpkin patches, books for the season, recipes, or more, we have got you covered with our Ultimate Guide to Fall In + Around Lansing.

We are so thankful to our partners at Peacock Road Family Farm for helping us bring this guide to you and we can’t wait to share all the fun they have waiting for you at the farm!

Peacock Road Family Farm is your ULTIMATE destination for fall fun this year. With several of our team members having been to the farm for fall activities we can assure it’s something you won’t want to miss for fall family memories. We have to be honest our favorite part has got to be grabbing a snack and warming up by the fires but our kids would probably say otherwise. The farm has so much to offer this season including, a wagon ride to the pumpkin patch, pony rides, Pork Chop Downs for pig races, visiting with baby animals in the baby barn, riding the train, Cowboy Games, duck racing, climbing the hay mound, and so much more. The farm opens October 2nd but you can purchase your tickets today to secure the day you want to head there for family fun! Just head here for tickets.

Farm Information| Open Monday-Friday from 3-6pm admission $6.00, babies are free. Saturday and Sunday 10am-6pm, admission $15.00, babies are free. Saturday and Sunday are loaded with a few more activities so check here to find which day is right for your family.
