BuyWithMe Great Country Farms Half Price to Select Events

BuyWithMe (the group buying site) has a half price deal for Great Country Farms, a 200 acre working farm at the base of Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains. in Bluemont, VA.

Normally $12 for adults and $10 for children, with this offer you are able to get half price admission to Glow Night or Pumpkin Chunkin’ Week:

$6 for an adult admission ticket ($12 value) OR $5 for a child admission ticket ($10 value), valid for one day’s entry to the event of your choice:

• Glow Night (October 29-30, 6-9pm and ‘lights out’ at 7:30) – This amazing display of over 2,000 lit jack-o-lanterns carved by local school children is the perfect pre-Halloween treat. Bring your own (or your lil’ tike’s) carved jack-o-lantern by 6pm to enter in the carving competitions, then warm yourself by the bonfire and roast some marshmallows. Bring your flashlight to visit the Who’s Your Farmer Corn Maze and to enjoy the farm’s slides and swings in the dark.

• Pumpkin Chunkin’ Week (November 1-7, 9am to 5pm) – Bring your leftover jack-o-lantern to the farm and get ready for a smashin’ good time. Do the smashin’ yourself at the Silo Drop or Zip Wire Sploosh, or bring your pumpkin to the Pumpkin Drop Zone and add it to the farm’s upside down ‘fireworks display’ as pumpkins are dropped from a 40 foot lift over the parking lot at 12 noon daily.

Your voucher gets you in to the event of your choice for one day, plus admission to the entire farm during that day. Visit the farm animal barnyard and petting zoo where cows, chickens, pigs, rheas, an emu, guinea fowl, geese, ducks, miniatures horses, sheep, and goats await your visit. Pick your own pumpkins at the U-Pick patch ($.59/pound). Jump on the jumping pillow, an amazing outdoor pillow of air that invites children under 12 to jump, jump, jump! And be sure to stop by the Country Store the first week of November for its annual Buy One, Get One Free sale on all jams, jellies, and honey so you can stock up for holiday gift giving.

This deal is available for one week before the offer disappears from the BuyWithMe site.

Please note that although this is a half price offer for these events, I’m finding on their website that weekday admission is priced at $8 per person (3 yrs – 10 yrs & sr. citizens) and $10 per person (ages 11+) and groups of 15+ people can get a discounted $8 admission. Children 2 and under are free. Currently (through the end of October) the Annual Fall Pumpkin Harvest Festival is taking place and this BuyWithMe offer does not include admission to this event.

I went to Great Country Farms with my son a few years ago and had a great time (this was actually back when he was a little baby, so he doesn’t remember the trip). You can read some Yelp reviews here (they have a 4.5 out of 5-star rating and 11 reviews). Another fun fall activity for those in the Northern Virginia area!
