Got farm fun? Georgetown does!

Written by Kathy Witt


Apple cider, pumpkin picking and fall festivals.

Why is a fall outing to the farm such a beloved tradition for so many?

As one of the three brothers who owns Bi-Water Farm & Greenhouse (often described as the Disney of central Kentucky farms), Stephen Fister can spool off a long list of reasons: hayrides, corn mazes, a spooky farm house, Sky High slide, Pumpkin Vine zip lines, chutes and slides, paintball target shooting, mini golf, a petting zoo and so much more, along with fried apple pies, apple cider slushees, fresh-baked cookies, breads and other yummies – and this is just at Bi-Water Farm.

Several Georgetown farms – all Kentucky Proud members – offer a cornucopia of fun and activities, games and goodies for fall outings.

“The fun part of coming to our farm is having fun with the kids, relaxing and spending the day on a hayride and then seeing the kids run and play or gathering the family for an evening around your own campfire,” said Fister. “But it’s also the sights and smells of fall – the fall leaves as they drift to the ground, the campfire smoke in the air.”
