With the Fall season here and more comfortable weather this time of year, many of the Fall festivals and pumpkin patches are up and running. Chief Meteorologist, Garrett Lewis, takes us to Alma in this week's Adventure Arkansas where pumpkins and hay rides aren't the only things to enjoy.
Sean and Stephanie Brister are generational farmers. It's what their parents did and what their parent's parents did, and now it's something they're teaching the next generation.
Just beyond the football field near Alma High School sits their 600 acre farm. You'll find soybeans, wheat, cows, and in the fall you'll find Frog Bayou Farm.
During the week, schools have field trips to learn about agriculture, and on the weekends you can enjoy everything about Fall.
"We've got lots of games to play while you're here. It's just designed so you can turn your kids loose and have a good time and relax and enjoy being outside."
From duck racing to pumpkin bowling, there's something for all kids to enjoy. This year, a zip line was added that has been a huge hit with the kids.
There's also two corn mazes, one for the kids and one for the grown ups that covers 12 acres and takes about half an hour.
For the smaller kids, there's something called a "corn box." It's a sandbox full of corn and without the mess of sand. There's also a petting zoo with pigs, donkeys, sheep, and rabbits.
There are plenty of scenic spots to take pictures and you can even learn a little bit about agriculture.
Hay rides run every hour on the hour during the weekend. Of course there are five different types of pumpkins grown on the farm.
Admission is free for children under the age of 4. Kids tickets are $6. Adults are $10.
The farm is open every weekend in October from 1pm until 7pm.
