Part of the fun of a new season is enjoying all the sights and sounds of it. One way that students can participate in fall festivities is by checking out Baugher’s Orchards and Farm Museum. Just ten minutes up the road, this farm is very accessible to students, especially if they utilize the shuttle service offered for free.
From now until the end of October, it is their Pumpkin Harvest festival. The market sells fresh apples, cider, pumpkins, gourds, fudge and more. There are also hayrides, food, music, pony rides, scarecrow making, face painting, apple picking, and a petting zoo.
Two minutes from McDaniel there is also Baugher’s Family restaurant, featuring a large country style menu with special fall favorites added to the menu, like apple cider, pumpkin pie, and pumpkin ice cream. Outside of the restaurant is a fruit market where students can pick their own fruit and vegetables and buy homemade favorites like apple sauce, jams, and bakery items.
I highly recommend everyone in the area check it out if you don’t already know about this hot spot for fall fun. Baugher’s is quintessential fall for anyone who loves the season and all that it brings.
