Down on the farm: Pick-your-own, hayrides, pumpkin patches, farm tours etc.

Many of these are old family farms.
This list is not inclusive. It has been culled from other lists, and we can't recommend any of the places - our choice was based simply on proximity. In pre-web days, The Maryland Department of Agriculture sent us flyers to distribute every year. They now publish their list online. MDA list.
In all cases, take your kids but leave your pets at home.

This is the closest. The other farms, listed below, are approximately 15-30 miles away from Takoma Park. (Note: The community of Glenn Dale, in PG County, is the development site of the Glenn Dale Azaleas, created by B.Y. Morrison, a resident of Takoma Park.)
