iFamilyKC Kids Club Event Recap: Weston Red Barn Farm

Last week we got a chance to check out Weston Red Barn Farm at the iFamilyKC Kids Club event!  My family and I had fantastic time!  Beautiful scenery, picturesque views, and family fun- what more could you ask for this fall? This was our first time at Red Barn Farm and definitely won’t be our last!  Check out my recap of our event and don’t forget to get on our eNews list to get in on upcoming super awesome Kids Club events!  We love the opportunity to check out really neat places in KC throughout the year (some very minimal cost and some FREE events!)

Weston Red Barn Farm

We spent a few hours on the farm enjoying smores by the campfire, pumpkin painting, hayrides and the animal barn.  My kids loved the space to run free and we all enjoyed the hayride through the woods!  The hayride was definitely my favorite thing and brings back memories of my own childhood at our church fall event.  The kids said their favorite thing was picking apples off the apple tree and eating them!

Weston Red Barn Farm offers FREE admission after 2:00pm Monday through Friday and on Saturdays and Sundays. You pay only for the activities you wish to do. It is open spring through fall.  As well as being open to the public, they do offer school tours Monday through Friday. It is also a perfect place for a wedding and the open air barn can be used for a reception.

Whether you want to take a hayride to pick out the perfect pumpkin, shop in the country store, visit the animals in the barnyard or navigate your way through the corn maze, the farm has something for everyone this fall!  Check them out on Facebook and on their farm website! The staff were super nice and I can’t wait to take my family back again soon!
