Looking for a fun fall day trip?  Need some new harvest time decor? I have the perfect place to visit, Enchanted Acres in Sheffield, Iowa. 

Enchanted Acres has something for all ages!  As it says on their website, “ It’s “that happy place” where kids, from 2 to 92, can channel Cinderella or Jack Sparrow. Enchanted Acres is a place where we all can dream about our happily ever after!”

Feeding goats on our visit

The girls and I headed over for their opening weekend festivities.  We were able to enjoy lunch, partake in Books in the Barn, feed the goats, play on the equipment, pick pumpkins, shopped in the market and enjoyed the great outdoors.  

Enjoying lunch

There are lots of kids activities going on throughout the fall like pumpkin painting, but there are also activities for grown-ups, too.  You can stay up to date on all of their activities by checking out their Facebook page.

I hope you take some time this fall, go grab some pumpkins and enjoy the day with your family!

Have you visited Enchanted Acres? What are your favorite fall traditions?

Stories need to be told.  You heard me say a few days ago in this post.  I truly believe it, our stories need to be told.  When I speak to large groups part of my message is encouraging people to share their stories because if they don’t someday those stories will be gone. Well after many conversations (some with others and some in my own head) I have decided that I am going to take the opportunity to share stories for people that may not have the means or platform to do it.  I want to tell of their successes, tragedies, funny stories and how they truly lived farm, ranch, rural, and ag life. I want to tell the stories that I wish I had written down about my grandparents and their parents. 

Do you know a farmer, rancher, or person involved in agriculture that you think would love to give a gift of their story for all of us to enjoy?  I say gift because it truly is a gift to those that will be reading the stories. It will be a gift to the next generation and will be a gift to the people that lived the story. It will be a way for them to know their legacy to continue to live on. I want to talk to people of all ages, genders, and states!  I want to tell your story.

Will you allow me the pleasure of telling your story through pictures and words? It would be my pleasure.

Complete this form to recommend yourself or another farmer, rancher, or person in agriculture.
