1. Lehigh County Open Gate Farm Tour

From pick your own pumpkins and hayrides to face-painting and corn mazes, there’s plenty of family-fun in store at the Lehigh County Open Gate Farm Tour, 1-5 p.m. Sunday.

For more than decades, Lehigh Valley farms have opened their doors to let visitors get a first-hand look at farm life. Northampton County held its tour earlier this month.

You can visit 19 Lehigh County agricultural operations including:

Kraussdale Alpacas, 5169 Kraussdale Road, Lower Milford Township (East Greenville): You can browse through this farm’s Alpaca Boutique to see all the different ways alpaca fiber can be used. You can also touch the animals to feel the softness of their fur and learn about alpacas, the yarn-making process and learn about the fiber processing. There will also be spinning, weaving and felting demonstrations.

Grim’s Orchard and Family Farms, 9941 Schantz Road, Upper Macungie Township (Breinigsville): It’s a must-visit for anyone looking for fall family fun. This 100-acre farm has a 5-acre corn maze, hayrides, pick your own apples, play corral for both adults and kids and barnyard animals. (Make sure to pick up some apple cider and apple cider doughnuts to take home.)
