The fall festival is a jubilee of family activities. Visitors can take a hayride to the pumpkin patch to find the perfect pumpkin, build a life-size scarecrow at the Scarecrow Factory or treat the little ones to a cow train ride or a trip through Critterville. Pick-your-own raspberries and tomatoes are available for a short while.
Highlighting the festival is the Know Your Farmer Corn Maze. This year’s maze is carved out of three acres of corn with a design that features produce, dairy and other farm products. The theme was inspired by the USDA Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food initiative to better connect consumers with local producers.
“It’s important for people to know where their food comes from,” said Rick Lattin, co-owner of Lattin Farms, a five-generation family farm. “And that’s why we picked this theme. Visitors can come out and have fun and see firsthand all the things we can grow in Nevada.”
The fall festival starts this week and will be open every weekend in October, from 5 to 8 p.m. on Fridays and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturdays.
Lattin Farms is located at 1955 McLean Road in Fallon. For more information, call 867-3750 or toll free (866) 638-6293, or visit www.lattinfarms.com.
