Heritage Farm and Fruit Trees is a cute place, with lots of photo opportunities and fun fall decor. It is a smaller place but has a huge fruit tree selection and a very large pumpkin patch. It is a bit out of the way, off the main road in Godfrey, but the farm had good signage all throughout the town and country roads to make it easier to find. There is a good parking lot that is surrounded by the corn maze.
The farm has a little stand where you can buy apple cider donuts, apple cider and other snacks. They didn’t have any donuts the day we went, which was a bit disappointing especially when they had advertised it on their Facebook. We did get apple cider, which was $1.50 for a cup, which I thought was a pretty good price for a good sized cup of cider.
The corn maze was $2 per person, which wasn’t a bad price, especially considering how large and extensive it was. I went with a couple of friends and we never managed to find the center. It started to rain so we had to end our visit a bit quickly, but not before taking a couple of photos.
The pumpkin patch the farm has is huge, with lots of different types of pumpkin. They had varieties of pumpkin that were big enough ones to sit on or small carving pumpkins. You were able to pick them off the vine, and they cost less than $1 per pound.
For those with young children, they had a small play area. It did cost $6 per kid, which seemed a bit pricey to a broke college student.
Overall it was a fun Saturday morning and pretty inexpensive. The owners were wonderful and helpful. Heritage Farm and Fruit Trees have a pumpkin patch every Saturday and Sunday from 10-5 p.m.
