Ioka Valley Farm - Fall Fun in The Berkshires
Summer time is over with all its fun on the lakes, rivers, and beaches… Now, it’s time for the romantic and colorful Fall! But don’t think that you can’t have fun, because in the Berkshires there is always something to do!!!
Ioka Valley Farm is a great place for the whole family. From an Indian word ioka means "beautiful", and it really is beautiful if you love nature. “Ioka Valley Farm is the home to pure maple syrup and specialty maple products, natural hormone-free beef, outstanding sweet strawberries in summer, perfect pumpkins and squash during the fall, fragrant real Christmas trees in winter, and contented farm animal.” Mid-September through Halloween is the time of the pumpkin patch.
Ioka Valley has an outdoor farm-theme playground that does not look like a contemporary playground for kids. But I am sure they will have fun there just because it’s not what they’ve seen before. This will be a simple and a low-tech fun without all the Disney-like machinery. This is a place for you if you are not afraid of kids getting dirty or need seat belts for everything your children do. This is old-fashioned fun. A tractor pulling linked radio flyers around the field, a maze made of hay bales, tractor trikes in a barn, petting area, a slide made out of corrugated plastic pipe, and adult pedal-powered go-carts.
Come and check it out! You won’t be disappointed!
