Center Grove Orchard: A Fall Favorite

Center Grove Orchard

Center Grove Orchard is one of my favorite parts of Fall in Iowa.  In fact is is the #1 thing to do on my Fall Bucket List with the Kiddos.  There is just something about getting out on the farm that makes it feel like Fall.  Maybe it’s the apples, maybe it’s the pumpkins, whatever it is, it just works.  My whole family looks forward to heading out to Center Grove Orchard each year.  Not only do the kids have a great time but I have to admit I even have some fun going down the giant tube slide and bouncing along with the kids on the jumping pillow.  Along with those there are pedal cars, a corn pool, corn maze, hay rides, farm animals and much more.  And don’t forget to grab a cider donut (or 3 or 4) on your way thru the bakery.  They are addictive!  For more info and directions visit Center Grove’s website here.
