Bullock Farms + Screamin’ Hill Brewery – Cream Ridge, NJ

This weekend we did our first Fall fun family event! We went to Bullock Farms in Cream Ridge, New Jersey – about an hour outside of Philadelphia.  Our amazing neighbors had planned to check it out as none of us had been before but upon some online research, heard really good things about it! So we decided to tag along and have some fun. Charles was extra excited to go pumpkin picking {this time!} because there was promise of a brewery attached at the end – a little something for everyone for sure!

Ok – Bullock Farms was SO adorable! I feel like it was a bit of a diamond in the ruff because we got there early and had the place literally to ourselves. Not sure if too many people know about it – another reason why I wanted to post about it, because it was lovely and I want to spread the love!

They had EVERYTHING the littles and the Fall lovin’ adults could want.

First up – while everyone was in a good mood, we went for a few fall photo ops. The boys were not really into it, sadly. But at least they were #twinning so I was happy about that. bg

Another Fall favorite at Bullock Farms – who doesn’t love the wooden painted decorations you can stick your face through for a photo? Oh, yes please! Brooks was a little more into these, even though the pictures don’t really show it – ha!

Anyone else do these at every Fall pumpkin picking of the season as a kid?

I know I totally did!

Oh Graham, you are worth every bit of that $11

Another part of the fun for Brooks was this giant hay mountain which had some fun slides to ride down. Pretty cute if I do say so myself – and he was OBSESSED.

He climbed up and down, and up and down for at least 30 minutes. We had to tear him away to do something else!

Did I mention there was a barnyard too? These goats were really cute!

I think I was most entertained by watching Brooks in the mazes! There were 3 different ones to choose from – the Mini Maze:

The Kidz Maze:

And the super large maze for adults:

I had no idea how big this thing actually was until we were in it for about 20 minutes and seemingly lost. I sort of got a little anxious. Charles asked me if I looked at it before we went in, which I didn’t – apparently you could see it going all the way up this massive hill..

Oh yea, see the Farm WAYYYYYYYY back there. We were only halfway through at this point! It was HUGE!

Pretty, but HUGE.

Pretty huge.

After we made it out of the maze alive, thank goodness, we headed out on a hayride to pick some pumpkins!

Brooks is at the perfect age for all this. He’s been on hayrides before, but this was a moment he could really enjoy it and be “on his own” while Graham still has to be carried around a bit, which I don’t think he minds at all – maybe I will get a cute photo of him walking in the pumpkins within the month, he’s so close to walking – but not this time! Also, I forgot to bring him shoes #momfail

This wasn’t a pumpkin patch where there were a bunch of pumpkins tossed in a field – they were all still attached. We had large cutters to cut the stem off when we picked ours!

Brooks was excited when he found a mini pumpkin that was “just his size” as well as a gourd which he used as a microphone and sang into the rest of the day. #toddlerlife

It was a chilly, overcast day, but perfect temperature for enjoying a day at the Farm.

We picked a pumpkin!

Brooks was pumped, obviously.

Have I mentioned how hard it is to get a photo with both the boys looking at all or even smiling? Damn near impossible. But here’s one of our little fam bam <3 and our new pumpkin

After pumpkin picking it was time for some hot cider

And a cider donut. Yum!

The most fun part of the day, for the adults – was the Screamin’ Hill Brewery that is attached to the Farm. Such an amazing idea for the “big kids” to enjoy after a morning playing with the littles in the pumpkin patch!

We did a sampler and got to try out 4 Screamin’ Hill beers – Rye Bullock IPA, Barn Burnin’ Ale, Pumpkin Pickin’ Ale + Chocolate Porter. I love visiting breweries and trying out new beers – such a great way to enjoy an afternoon, and the beers were good too!

    Great Recap on a fun day! I remember taking you and your brother and various friends every year to Cox’s Farm for some Fall/Pumpkin fun. That was so much fun! Looking forward to spending a day at a local pumpkin patch with the littles too!
