About Milky Way Farm
Milky Way Farm is a 103-acre family farm that offers plenty to do. We took our toddler daughter and my parents there for a visit in early October and hope to go back again soon. If you’re looking for a great Fall day trip for the family, definitely put this one on your list.
The Farm has a large parking lot so parking was easy. Parking and entry were free when we went. As you enter the farm there’s a vegetable stand and several boxes of different varieties of apples available. We ended up coming home with a stalk of Brussels Sprouts, a football sized sweet potato, and an assortment of other veggies that looked too good to pass up.
Farm Animals and a Corn Maze
The main area of Milky Way Farm has a number of stands with pumpkins and gourds and corrals with goats and sheep. My daughter found herself a small gourd that she wouldn’t put down so we came home with that, of course. Off to one side of the main area is access to the corn maze.
On weekends, the Farm offers a free hayride to their pumpkin patch. On the ride, one of the staff gives a tour of the farm and how things at the farm work. Our guide also talked about the various types of gourds and their uses (I had no idea there were so many types). Our toddler loved roaming around the pumpkin patch and picking her perfect pumpkin (one that Grandma had conveniently placed for her).
After checking out the pumpkin patch, it was time for the Creamery. Our pumpkin patch guide told us that milk companies buy their raw milk and return to the cream to the farm for use in their ice cream. If you go for no other reason than their ice cream it will be worth the trip. It was some of the best that I’ve ever had.
Milky Way Farm is located at 521 E Uwchlan Ave, Chester Springs, PA 19425. The farm is about 35 minutes from Philadelphia.
