"My girlfriend and I were looking for a local pumpkin patch and found Blacks Farm online. They allowed dogs which was a plus and despite a few negative reviews on Google we decided to check it out. When we arrived we were immediately greeted by multiple friendly staff. They had hay rides, pumpkin picking, a petting zoo, a kids play area, and fresh quash and vegetables for sale (and a few other exhibits we didn’t get a chance to see). The place was not over crowded like some of the super commercialized pumpkin farms that we’ve been to in the past. It’s a cool quaint little place with a family vibe and a great fall atmosphere. We had a great experience at Blacks Farm and did not encounter any of the issues brought up by other Google reviewers. Perhaps things have changed!"
