You have certainly witnessed it while admiring the view of seven states from Rock City—a bright red barn donning the familiar phase, “See Rock City.” It stands out among the lush greenery of the valley below and harkens back to an era where roadside barns across America adorned the words that would draw millions of people to the natural wonder that is Rock City. This iconic barn is the home to Blowing Springs Farm, where an adventure for the whole family awaits!
Located at the base of Lookout Mountain—giving you a unique vantage point of Rock City and Lookout Mountain—Blowing Springs Farm puts the “fun” in farm with activities and special events throughout the fall season. The Enchanted MAiZE is a great way to get lost in pastoral wonder as you weave your way through tall stalks of corn. And don’t forget to pick up a “Get Lost” souvenir shirt to show that you made it through the farm’s labyrinth!
While the maze is the main attraction, there are a host of activities that make Blowing Springs Farm the perfect place to enjoy the crisp autumn air on a weekend or a relaxing Friday afternoon. There is something for everyone, including Bagby’s Critter Corral, where guests can get in touch with farm favorites like mini Scottish Highland Cows, a miniature horse, an alpaca, rabbits, and even potbellied pigs! Kids love the games on the farm, too—duck races, pedal carts, and the corn slingshot are just a few of the farm-centric activities geared toward the littlest members of your brood. Be sure to make time to hop aboard a hayride and enjoy gorgeous mountain views!
Fall is pumpkin season, so while you’re visiting the farm, select your perfect pumpkin to paint or carve for a fun fall decoration. And when all that autumn action works up your appetite, the Main Street Food Building will be serving hot dogs, fried sausage and pepper sandwiches, funnel cakes, and fried Oreos! You can also get refreshments like hot boiled peanuts, coffee, hot chocolate, Coca-Cola products and Slush Puppies onsite.
Blowing Springs Farm is open for fall fun from September 29th through October 29th on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Kids three and under receive free admission, making Blowing Springs Farm the ideal place to get the family outdoors while creating memories that will last a lifetime!
